Halo 4 - Promethean Knight by Krediath Halo 4 - Promethean Knight by Krediath
A Promethean Knight from Halo 4, one of three newly revealed enemies.

Note:
Prometheans were the highest class of Warrior-Servants in Forerunner society, and these appear to be a form of Sentinel AI that serves under one of them.

[This render, and the enemy it depicts, belong to 343 Industries.

You know, now that I take a closer look, they're just robotic elites with a bit of human anatomy. This replaced the elites? Wow.

I don't think the Covenant is being replaced in Halo 4. Prometheans are more a replacement for the Flood as the Gravemind was destroyed in Halo 3. You still fight the Covenant in Halo 4.

I don't want to shoot the elites, I want to PLAY AS the elites. Sadly, in the multiplayer, you don't even get the ripoffs! JUST. FREAKING. BLAND. SPARTANS. I'm sorry for my immature behavior, but this is just so disappointing, it makes me want to file a complaint to 343 Industries.

I don't know what the big deal is about not playing as elites in multiplayer. 343 said that the Halo 4 multiplayer will have its own story-line and it will be called infinity so putting elites in there won't make sense and also the elites you will fight in the campaign are different from the ones that helped you in Halo 3, these still believe that the prophets were right and also hate humans and didn't want an alliance with them. You didn't expect every single elite to follow the arbiter did you?

You have some good points, but I sure wouldn't want to follow the same tyrant who tried to commit genocide on my kind if I were an elite. I really don't get it.

That's right, I believe the same but they are also a race. For example I'am pretty sure that some humans didn't want to be friends with the elites. Look at them the same way.

Oh yeah, That's a really good point. And well made. Well if you're only allowed to play as spartans, is the EOD armor still there at least? (at least that one looked cool.)

Yeah is there and it looks awesome. I forgot to say something but it might be an SPOILER for you so watch out. I heard that the reason those elites and other covenant races are on Requiem is because they are looking for a living forerunner, which is a god to them and that forerunner is the Didact. But some elites are still fighting the brutes and others were trying to kill the arbiter. The EOD armor looks awesome, I like all the armors that I've seen so far, I don't know which one I will use. They look so epic IMO XD

Wait, how do you know that you can't play as elites in multiplayer? They've only revealed two variants of slayer. No doubt Halo 4 will have the same amount, if not more, of multiplayer games such as Invasion, Living Dead and Snipers.

Too bad you see it that way. I think Halo is in good hands with 343. Although regardless of what they do, people are going to complain.

I read a little info about them on the Halo Wikia. Prometheans are probably going to be a combination of Hunters & Elites. Most likely foes you wonna approach with caution! :-)

I believe the sentinels were created by builders as a way to hold off the flood if they breached containment until Halo could be fired. Not a means of destroying them, Guilty pointed this out on several occasions.


The Prometheans on the other hand were employed by the warrior-servant class to not only stop but completely annihilate the flood if possible. This being assumed by the way the new enemies fight, very counter flood like.

I meant the way it was written, not the story itself. The author gave so little description of either place or person that I couldn't even form a solid image of how they left the island at the beginning. Everything that was going on was so ambiguous and convoluted. I got that it supposed to take place way in the past when Forerunners still made contact with humans on Earth and other alien species, but there was absolutely no context.

Yes I know. Look, I found it to be poorly written, but maybe that's just me. The utter lack of scenery or character description would have left anyone, Halo-fan or not, wondering what the hell was going on.

Dude, I practically breathe Halo. I'm sorry you got offended that I didn't like the book. I loved Fall of Reach and Ghosts of Onyx, but I thought Cryptum was just awful, story-wise. That's just my opinion though, I don't need you to agree with me.

But if they're anything like the demo we saw, they will be a absolute pain to fight on legendary, alone...

And to add to the rage factor, we can't use grenades on some of them thanks to watchers.

I can hear the smashing screens already.

Watchers are going to be a nightmare to face on legendary when there are a lot of them.

Did you see how they give knights hard light shields and spawn crawlers added to the ability to capture grenades.

I'm starting to hear those smashed screens as well.

Yep, the watchers are gonna be a pain on Legendary.

If you've seen the E3 Press Conference gameplay demo on youtube, you can kill the watchers before they fling your grenade back at you, damaging and even destroying any nearby enemies.

wow, fascinating. It would be interesting to fight these things, seeing as the only enemies you fight in this game is Covenant and the Wretches from Gears of War. It would've been nice if 343 Industries included Sentinels I suppose, but these would only be ports from Halo 3 :sadface:

and the forerunners are similar to humans in appearance

I would love to fight a War Sphinx. Hell, maybe we will - battling that with the Cyclops MK-II (H4 Press Release screenshots - the cockpit is open) would be one epic fight.

Whether on foot or in a vehicle, I damn hope we get to confront one.

I think Frank O'Connor said somewhere that you can't operate the Cyclops in Halo 4. But if there are usable War Sphinxes in the game then that wouldn't really matter.

He only stated that for Multiplayer from what I'm aware, and said he had something bigger [Elephant?] in mind.

Well, charging a War Sphinx in an Elephant would be something new. And awesome.
