Seattle is currently under the influence of Halofest, gearing up for PAX, and probably experiencing one of 20 sunny days this year. Besides celebrating the video game industry in general, those who care about Halo 4 received additional reasons to be happy, as news came that the new Warthog was to be debuted. The Warthog unveiling will, however, be in a non-Halo game controlled by the Kinect – quite different from the intense analog stick jockeying of an FPS.
Instead of showing off the Warthog with a brief playable demo of some Halo oriented material, the vehicle is slated to appear as a bonus in motor sports game Forza 4. Forza’s garage mode will have the car as a display model, unlockable through still unknown but guaranteed intense racing action.
Yes, despite being a car game featuring a new car, you cannot drive the new Warthog in Forza 4. So it’s there simply to jostle about the screen in a test mode, as it has been stated by Dan Greenwalt, creator of Forza, that the vehicle is too slow to compete. Since speed mods can never happen to make a bonus actually functional instead of a wasted “trophy plus” idea.
