Halo 4 Launch trailer ‘Scanned’ Is About Master Chief’s Past

With the release of Halo 4 just on the horizon 343 have seen fit to finally give us Halo 4’s launch trailer.

The trailer, titled ‘Scanned’ shows us Master Chief being interrogated by the Prometheans via some sort of brain scan (hence the name). It shows us the same painful images from Chief’s past that the interrogator is seeing. From his kidnapping and conscription into the Spartan project to his augmentations the trailer switches between live action and animated sequences.

Microsoft revealed last week that it had brought on Hollywood heavy hitters Fincher — known for helming films such as “The Social Network,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “Fight Club” — and Miller to work with the game’s developers at 343 Industries to create the two-minute trailer.
