Halo: Combat Evolved Terminals Offer Halo 4 Story Hints

Posted on June 29, 2011 AT 10:50am

343 Industries has explained how terminals will work in Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and how they will offer hints to the story in Halo 4.

Speaking to CVG Executive Producer, Dan Ayoub explains that terminals will be hidden throughout the game and finding them will unlock short videos that explain some of the things that will happen in Halo 4.

“So you guys may remember Terminals from Halo 3, they were
very much like Easter Eggs in the game. You went through, found them and
got some story info. It was usually just text on the screen. But it’s
not really that interesting to read text on a screen, so we’re doing
some very cool things with it.”

“You’ll hear Tim Dadabo, the actual voice actor for Guilty Spark from
the original game [narrating these Terminals]. The Terminals are
definitely setting the story for Halo 4 but we’ll talk about that more
in the future.”

“We’re giving Terminals a much more visual treatment, where we’re
telling each story in a graphical way. It’s a lot cooler than reading
text on a screen and also allows us to convey a lot more emotion in our
storytelling. We’ve got Terminals hidden throughout the game and if you
find them all you’ll learn story about the Halo universe, the ring and
also story elements of things you’re going to see in Halo 4.”
