Best Upcoming and Awaited Game Titles-Part 2

This is the follow-up to the post-Best Upcoming and Awaited game titles-part 1.

In the first part of the series, I gave details about NFS Most Wanted 2012, Assassins Creed 3 and Crysis 3. Today, I would provide details about 3 more games which are creating a lot of buzz in the gaming community. These 3 games are- Halo 4, Resident Evil 6 and God of War-Ascension. Read on.
1) Halo 4: Halo is an Upcoming first-person shooter Video Game in the renowned Halo franchise exclusive to the Xbox platform. It is the eight installment in the franchise. It is intended to be the first game of a new Halo Trilogy called "The Reclaimer Trilogy". Halo 4 is being developed by 343 industries after the Bungie (which developed previous 3 games of franchise) severed its ties with Microsoft. Halo 4 was officially announced at the E3 expo this year and is set for a worldwide release on 6th of November for Xbox 360.
Halo 4 would mark the return of John 117 as a playable Protagonist after 2007's Halo 3. Halo 4 would pick-up right from where Halo 3 left. Having been lost in space since the finale of Halo 3, the Master Chief (John 117) and Cortana adrift aboard the wreckage of the UNSC frigate forward Unto Dawn, find themselves near a mysterious Forerunner planet. The campaign will mainly take place on the artificial Forerunner Planet Requiem. Not much is known about the plot of the game apart from the fact that a key plot point will changes to Cortana and how her exposure to Halo and her operations beyond her natural lifespan may have contributed to her becoming Rampant, a mental state of aged ALs akin to insanity which normally results in the death of the Al. Halo 4 will be released in two separate versions- branded 'Standard' and limited edition with the latter including access to future Downloaded Content.

2) Resident Evil 6: Resident Evil 6 is an upcoming dramatic Horror Video game developed and published by Capcom. It is known in Japan as Biohazard 6. The game is scheduled for release on October 2nd 2012 for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 and would be released at a later date for Microsoft Windows.

The Plot of Resident Evil 6 is as follows- In the year 2012, Adam Benford, the president of America has financially decided to reveal the truth behind the Raccoon City Destruction Incident of 1998. The President believes that revealing the truth would curb the current resurgence in bio-terrorist activity. Due to be by the President’s side is his personal friend and Raccoon City survivor, Leon S Kennedy and his new partner Helena Harper; but when the venue becomes host to another bio-terrorist attack, Leon is forced to face the infected and mutated President, making the hardest decision in his life. At the same time, Bio-terrorism Security Assessment Alliance Captain Chris redfield and his team, including B.S.A.A. member Piers Nivans, arrive in the fictional Chinese city of Lanshiang (based on Hong Kong), itself under threat of a bioterrorist attack. Since no country in the world is safe from these attacks, the entire population of the world now fears that there maybe no hope left. A playable demo of Resident Evil 6 would be released on the PlayStation network and Xbox Live Marketplace on September 5.
