The lights are on
What do you still want to know about Halo 4? We'll be talking with 343 Industries for an upcoming podcast, and we'll ask the developer your questions. We've spent the month laying out all the details about Halo 4 that we gleaned from our visit to 343 Industries. But what features about the game are you still excited to learn more about?Write your question into the Comments thread below, and we'll gather a random assortment of questions to ask 343.

Do you foresee the Chief leading the way into the next console generation?
Who are we fighting?? seriously, we want answers.
halo 4 is completely awesome looking and it most likely live up to my exceptions or i will wright a hateful letter to all the people involved with halo 4 8)
I have a few questions.
1. Will there be a Forge mode? If so, How will it be in terms of customization(Reach Forge had loads of things to add but lacked items to detail your maps. Most maps seemed like empty ruins. I wanna see decorations such as debris, control panels, stuff like that.)
2. I know that Firefight will not be included. Do you have any plans to have a Firefight type mode where you get to fight the Flood? Maybe a Spartan Ops mission?
3. How is the armor customization compared to Reach? Are there more options? (Hayabusa FTW!)
4. Why did you decide to focus only on Spartan vs Spartan combat, instead of having Elites playable in the multiplayer as well?
5. Will we ever get to see the Masterchief's face? PLEASE?
Does the Flood have a role in the next game/series, or do we not have to deal with them?
I would like to know how the halo 4 ranking system will work.
I already expect that some of the question i am asking cant be answered at this time by 343. But i hope some of my questions are capable of being anwsered at this time. And if some of my questions are asked and answered, thank you.
What are some of the new weapons?
What are the confirmed weapons that are coming back to the series?(Example... is the needeler rifle coming back, are the SMG's returning from Halo 3, is the Spike grenade from Halo 3 returning?)
What are some weapons that are for sure NOT coming back?
Can you tell us what sort of weapons we can spawn with since custom loadouts are now in Halo 4?
Since Halo 4 is introducing custom weapon load-outs, can we expect to select what kind of grenades we want as well?
Is dual weilding coming back? And if dual weilding isnt going to be in Halo 4, can 343 tell us why not?
What armor abilities are returning?
Other than Forerunner vision, are there any other new abilities coming to Halo 4?
What is the Battle Rifle going to be like? And other than the 3 round burst, how will it differ from the DMR?
Is the Assualt rifle going to go through any changes? (Example is it going to have a zoom on it, is it going to have more bullets in the mag, is it going to be more accurate, is it going to shoot any slower or faster?)
When customizing are Spartans' armor, is it purely cosmetic, or will every peice of armor we put on going to affect us in some way. (Examples... will the different armor options improve things like health, speed, and sheilds?)
In theater mode, can we record in slow-motion?
Are there going to be any new veichles in the game, and if so can you tell us some?
Is the Brute Chopper from Halo 3 coming back?
Are removable turrets coming back?
Are the Spartan IV's more powerfull than Spartan II's? If not, are they more powerfull than Spartan III's?
Many Halo fans have said that 343 is no longer making Halo 4. They say that 343 is actually making a Call of Duty rip-off. What is 343's responce to that?
Alot of people liked the power weapon controle in the past Halo's. So why is 343 scraping power weapon spawning in one location for random power weapon drop during games?
Why aren't Elites playable in Halo 4?
Since Elites are no longer playable, are we wrong to assume that invasion mode will not return?
Why isn't Firefight returning?
How long is a season when it comes to Spartan Ops?
Will all the Spartan Ops missions be replayable? (Example... If Spartan Ops is successful, and 343 makes several seasons of Spartan Ops, can we go back to a Spartan Op mission way back from season 1.
Can we expect the flood to return in Halo 4. If not, has 343 really created an enemy more ferocious than the Flood?
Since the convenant is returning as an enemy, is it wrong to assume that the Profits are going to make apperances in Halo 4?
Is Arbitre returning?
Is MC and Cortana the only good guys on this new strange world? If so, who will his allies be? Because Cortana cant shoot a gun.
Are their going to be any live action trailers of Halo 4?
Thank you 343 and GI for taking time out of your day to read my questions.
PS. I cant wait for this game to come out. Really hope that this weapon load out thing turns out great. Because ive always wanted to go into a Halo battle with the Covenant Carbine right from the start of a match. Good luck 343. hope you blow us away with this game.
If only one of my questions are alowed to be asked then this is my top choice.
Since we are now getting custom weapon loadouts, random power weapon drops, a rank progression system, and sort of perk system many long time Halo fans say that 343 isn't making Halo 4 at all. They say that 343 is actually making a Call of Duty rip-off. What is 343's responce to that accusation?
If you still have a jetpack on your back will you still be able to sprint?
What will buyers get for pre-ordering Halo 4?
Can we expect any new additions to gameplay that have not been in previous Halo installments (more in-depth melee combat, cover system, more advanced AI for enemies, destructible environments, etc.)?
You have stated that the maps are designed to work for sprint and all AA's. Have you designed any multiplayer maps to work more for no AA's eg Sprint? Give the game a hint of classic feel in that regard?
Will Chief and Cortona show their feelings for eatchother?
Is there anything from the campaign that you can tell us?
