With increased pace and action, greater epic encounters, new interactive story elements, and more combat freedom than ever before, "Halo 4" delivers the series' most dynamic and explosive campaign yet - whether it is a solo fight or a cooperative assault on Xbox LIVE.

Published by Microsoft Studios, "Halo 4" is a compelling fresh take on the fight between good and evil and will be available at retail stores across India on Tuesday.

Speaking at the launch of Halo 4, Anshu Mor, Business Group Lead - Interactive Entertainment Business, Microsoft Corporation India Pvt. Ltd. said, "We are delighted to launch the next edition of Halo - a game that has shaped entertainment history and defined a generation of gamers.

"There has been much anticipation around the return of Master Chief and gamers will revel in the storyline and gameplay in Halo 4. Let the Halo fever begin!"

Developed by 343 Industries, "Halo 4" marks the dawn of a blockbuster new game series, the Reclaimer Saga, centered on the Master Chief as he faces an ancient evil and a deadly new class of technologically advanced foes - the Prometheans.

"Master Chief" sets out on emotional journey fraught with personal demons and the most daunting challenges he's ever faced.

Featuring a darker and more personal story that reintroduces the iconic hero as a genuinely human character, "Halo 4" sets players on an epic sci-fi voyage that will span the next decade of "Halo" games, across a three part trilogy.
