It might not look like the original design I will say that but if this is the new design that they are going for, a more sleek and slender design Welcome it seeing that the old design was good but from the look of the old design it lacked integrity because of everything being so far apart look at the Helcyon-class ships they don't have engines jetting off to the of the ship open to be blown off. I just believe this new more compact design is something that 343 is trying to change. I hope that this isn't offensive to anyone and if so sorry.
Je suis pas d'accord, ils aurait pu faire un très bon niveau en gardant le design d'origine de halo 4, c'est juste qu'il on tout simplement pas voulu ce creusé la tête. et personnellement si vous avez joué a HALO REACH vous pouvez voir a quel point la frégate "UNSC COMMONWEALTH" est grande a l’intérieur contrairement au apparence et même coupé en 2 parti la frégate "UNSC FORWARD UNTO DAWN" aurait pu être un aussi bon niveau si ils avait gardé la même que HALO 3. bref... le jeux est sublime dans l’ensemble et même le scénario !!! mai je regrette que 343 industrie n'est pas garder le design d'origine pour le FORWARD UNTO DAWN.
I can see your point ~erickgb44 and I think they could have,or at least not have changed it as much from halo 3,but the fact remains that 343 industries doesn't agree with that and unfortunately in this case their word is law.
The reason they changed it(Or at least the most plausible theory) Is a mixture of artistic licence and game play issues.They needed to make more space in order to make room for there to be a playable level inside. Unfortunately they decided to completely redesign the thing rather than just modify it. I can buy the changes to Chief's armor as nano reconstruction,but they didn't even attempt to provide an explanation for the dawn nor did they stay true to the much loved design of the Charon class frigate. Of course continuity is a major problem in the game(as well as some lazy writing is parts of the story i.e "this is UNSC Master Chief"seriously?)but the game is over all awesome and solid where it counts so I guess I can look past my nerdy complaints. Honestly I don't hate the new design and if it was just a new class of frigate I would have no problem with it. So I guess 343 is alright,but I hope they pay better attention to continuity with Halo 5.
DO you know what a UNSC frigate looks like look up the Forward Unto Dawn, I know the ship is cut in half but the side that got cut in half looks nothing like a frigate or what the back side looked like in the end of halo 3. If it's just the angle I can understand but were the ship engines are it looks kind off like a frigate but then again it looks completely way off. Even then top of the ship looks nothing like the frigate. They completely change the way the frigates looks like.
