These two concept screens were spotted by The Little English Halo Blog, and are featured in the Halo 4 Premium Theme. There's no word on exactly what these two screens depict, but their beauty and scale is incredible.

The first screen depicts a lonely Forerunner structure that is glowing with a neon blue Tron-esque light with the Chief standing center-stage. While the second (and more interesting) screen shows us an upside down city-scape hanging over a mountain range.

We're not sure what's going on there, but it could be some kind of shield world, with buildings pointing down from the shield layer onto the surface. Either way, we're excited for the next Halo game to dig into some of the awesome lore that exists in the peripheral fiction.

    Ok when I saw the cityscape, first thing that came to mind, Halo wars, they aren't skyscrapers, those are actually forerunner ships, its one of the last cut-scene's from halo-wars where they actually have an awesome scene involving them, they dont look the same as the ones actually shown in halo-wars but best guess that is what those are.

    I really hope that Halo 4 has levels like those. It looks like an opportunity to bring back the "mysterious" feel Halo 1 had: What was the Halo ring? What were those Alien structures? Halo's 2, 3, ODST, and REACH were really lacking in the "mysterious" department.

    Halo 3 had a little bit of that with the Ark but you're dead on with the rest. They just gave the player too much information. Discovering what the ring was in Halo 1 was an awesome part! It was so awesome actually that I'm going to go replay it. Thank you for the advice.
