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.

I really couldn't care less about the game (don't have an Xbox and the games are meh) but that is a niiiiice cover.
Cool. Can't wait to read the cover story.
The fanboy in me is super pumped for this. Can't wait to get my issue.
Looking forward to reading about 343's plans for the Halo franchise
While I might not be too excite since I've never been a huge Halo fan, GI's cover stories are always fantastic and I'm sure this one won't disappoint either.
Yessssss. Called it.
I'm not the biggest Halo fan. I already know what game of the month is... I'm not all that thrilled but I still can't wait to read this.
I never get my magazines delivered to my house,but that's the Post Office for ya! Still excited to go up to Gamestop and pick this up though.
Forgive my immaturity, but...
HELL YES! I JUST RECENTLY GOT EXCITED FOR HALO 4 AFTER SEEING THE FIRST LOOK! THIS IS A SIGN THAT THE GAME WILL BE AWESOME!
And like that, my fanboy orgasm is done...
