The exact amount is currently under debate, but early pre-sale reports have Halo 4 making somewhere between a boatload and gigantic gaping assload of money when it hits streets on November 6th (pre-order from CHUD). A new beginning of sorts for the franchise, this 4th entry is actually part one of what new honchos 343 Industries (taking over for the emancipated Bungie) are touting as the “Reclaimer Trilogy.”

Here we have a look at some gameplay which, aside from a new coat of polish, doesn’t appear all that different from Halo: Reach. I’d be remiss if I didn’t note that all this talk of humanity posing a threat to an ancient evil sounds eerily similar to Mass Effect. From IGN:
