Halo: Shield and Sword by LeviWasTaken Halo: Shield and Sword by LeviWasTaken
"Halo: Shield and Sword" is a title for my Halo 4 'What If?' project. It's basically a collection of ramblings and sketches that imagine what Halo 4 might be like.

The above image is represetative of the main menu screen. To find out more about the project and view the rest of the menu screens, visit my post at HBO:

Since there's not really a good way to post such a long string of text and images together on DeviantArt, I'm just going to be posting some of the best pieces of art that I make during the project, with links to the full articles.

While this first article simply deals with the menus and interfaces, the next article and all the rest will be a walkthrough of the campaign levels and story.

I'm actually curious if it's alright with you if I try my hand at making this into a fan fiction. It is seriously amazing.

This should have been the real Halo 4, I believe. Let's what Bungie has waiting for us, but, truth be said, your concept work is nothing less than amazing.

Thank you for sharing it with us all. :salute:

No problem. The real Halo 4 could be very different and very cool too. We won't know for sure until Nov. 6th. :)

Indeed. We'll have to wait to see, in the end.

But your ideas are truly kickass. You should make a shooter one day. :)

Great job!!!

btw what's the font used on the 'Shield And Sword' text?

It was a free download you can find entitled 'Denmark'. I find it's very good for a subtle futuristic font.

I read your what ifs on HBO and I gotta admit they are pretty darn awesome. You should work for 343/Bungie or something! When's the next one coming?

we can only hope they don't screw this up.

I have faith in Bungie mk2, but I will honestly say i cringed when i heard Halo 4 was coming out. It's not like star wars where you can have 6 of them. Just my opinion.

We will have 6 of them. They call the latter 3 the "Reclaimer Trilogy."
I just hope they don't put the proverbial tree freshener in the dirty car and call it new. I believe they did that with CEA in terms of slapping on graphics and leaving out syncing animations to voice acting and all that.

Sorry about the debate-like comment, but I had to voice my opinion. Anyway...
Levi, once again... ALL MY INTERNETS. ALL MY F***ING INTERNETS. *gives* You win again, good sir. I checked out the link; mind = blown. Ok, not blown, because it's super-late where I am, but it's enough.

Also, I suggest you go check out race999999's YouTube channel [link] . This person also has a sort of "what if" project in progress and is also participating in the creation of the fan-made game Halo: Galaxy of Combat. Here's one of my favorite menus he's made: [link]

Blah! I'm torn. On one hand, I love your artwork and the way you approach Halo fiction. On the other hand, from what I've seen in regards to Halo 4, it looks pointless and soulless - not to mention Bungie has no involvement.

Remember, we really haven't seen much of Halo 4, so it's still pretty hard to say what it's going to be like, in-game. I'd really like it not to fail... :/
