The lights are on
We've seen a surprising amount of speculation this month about our May cover, with all sorts of different games being suggested. At long last, we can pull back the curtain on our world-exclusive look at Halo 4.
This 14-page cover story is stuffed full of details on the new game, including information on where the story is going, hands-on impressions of multiplayer, and intel on the surprising new approach governing every aspect of Halo's multiplayer experience.
343 Industries also shared a wealth of in-game screenshots and concept art revealing new locations within the Halo universe. Take a look at the May cover image below.
Now, get a glimpse of the new look for Halo's longtime character, Cortana, revealed on our back cover for the first time.
In addition to exclusive info on Halo 4,the May issue comes packed with six pages of new insight into the long awaited Guild Wars 2 MMO. Also keep an eye out for previews of Borderlands 2, Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, SimCity, The Last Story, and more.
Plus, get our final word on games like the 360 version of The Witcher 2 with our full review in advance of the game's release.

HALO 4: I'm curious as to the storyline. I thought HALO wrapped everything up.
Witcher 2: Can't wait. Tried to buy the first one, but it couldn't run on my pc
Am I the only one hoping for a complete stylistic overhaul for this game? After playing 5 Halos, I've become pretty disenchanted with the usual, tired approach, which includes running around with toy-like guns/vehicles, shooting non-threatening aliens inside formulaic levels. If 343 wants to hold my attention this time around they're going to have to revamp the gameplay to make it grittier, more cinematic, and much more varied. If they can translate the large-scale, explosive gameplay (think Battlefield 3) of the books to the gameplay, I'll be very happy.
Very nice and simple, as usual.
I actually wanna play this just to learn more about Master Chief. Can't wait for the cover story.
I cannot wait for Halo 4. I hope it doesn't ruin what Bungie worked so hard to make.
I just hope that it's more like Halo 3 or 2 than Reach, I just didn't like Reach.
yes yes yes yes
