With the Master Chief on his way back in November, 343 Industries has released this extensive video looking at the voice actors and motion capture featured in Halo 4. Now you can see the two performers responsible for giving life to the Chief as well as some of the studio work behind giving the latest installment of the shooter series life.

It's also a chance to see the 343 team talk about some of the decisions that went into the Chief's updated design this time out, referencing some of the reference points for the tweaked armor (an interesting note: the fingers on his gloves are armored except for his forefinger).

Halo 4 will be available on November 6th.

Being a human in Aliens: Colonial Marines just got a little tougher with the inclusion of Escape Mode, a new asymmetrical, 4 v 4 multiplayer mode coming to the game when it's released in February. In it, a team of Marines will have to make their escape from a level within 15 minutes while the opposing team of Xenomorphs hunt them down. This new mode will be playable all weekend at PAX Prime, if you're interested in checking it out at the SEGA booth.

To get into the specifics of how this new mode would work, I recently spoke with Gearbox Multiplayer Producer Chris Brock who walked me through some of the developer's vision for Escape Mode, building the perfect levels to escape from, and getting players excited about playing as the alien.

Halo sounds a certain way to longtime fans of the series. If you ask anyone who's played through the campaigns of the main titles in the series, composer Marty O'Donnell's score has been integral to the Master Chief and Cortana's galaxy-spanning adventures (to the degree that even O'Donnell's own jazzier compositions for ODST were met with doubt and confusion by fans).

But with 343 Industries taking over the franchise from Bungie, the Kirkland, WA-based developer had to think about what was next sonically for the series, vetting several candidates to give the first game in a new trilogy its own sound. And as Neil Davidge, the man who would eventually get the gig tells it, they didn't want to do the usual film composer doing games things.

Davidge is the longtime producer and writer with the British electronic outfit, Massive Attack, and he knows something about wedding music to action, having worked on the very distinctive soundtrack for 2004's Danny the Dog along with documentaries Battle In Seattle and Trouble the Water. Davidge's soundtrack will be available a on October 22nd in the U.S., a couple of weeks before Halo 4 hits shelves.

So what was it like taking over the reins for Marty and finding a new sound of the Chief and Cortana? In this interview, Davidge, an avid gamer and fan of the Halo series, talks about approaching the material, the challenge of writing music around gunfire, and what he thinks is the heart of the game.

Tomorrow, in our next installment, we'll be talking with DJ Skee about his remix for the Special Edition release of the game's soundtrack.
