Master Chief rules in 1st look at cover art for long-awaited Halo 4

It took some doing on the part of some very dedicated gamers to reveal this image, the official cover to the upcoming Halo 4. But this epic, iconic shot of the Master Chief seems like it was worth the trouble.

Gamers who frequent the Halo Waypoint Forums were emailed individual pieces of a puzzle that, when assembled, revealed the cover for Halo 4. Given that so much of the Halo experience—especially after you finish the single-player campaign—consists of shooting friends and strangers in the face, this kind of teamwork is admirable.

Halo 4 drops on Nov. 6.
