yeah, i'm gonna have to agree with everyone and say that this drawing of the Didact looks way better then the Didact in Halo 4.

This is my favorite version of the Didact to date. Such an elegant yet powerful design, plus way more in line with the Forerunner art style than 343i's version.

For the record, I think this is cooler than what they ended up doing. Imagine a fight against *this*, like fighting a roided up Super-Promethean Knight... instead of a quicktime event.

I couldn't agree more. Quicktime events suck. It might as well have just been a cutscene.

I have to say I like this version much better. It keeps the mysterious lore of the forerunners in tact, rather than the human/voldemort vampire thing in Halo 4. I like how this drawing keeps the Didact faceless, assertive, and much more intresting.

if you read the forerunner saga this is how he should be,  i have no idea what happend to him in halo 4

Well it kinda makes sense that the promethians don't look like their artificial soldiers. I like the new Didact appearance-wise, but I'm still sad there's no true boss fight

Yeah, this was made before Halo 4 was out, and it was just what I pictured him looking like from the books.

Oh and nice concept of the Promethiun Holo night. What most forerunner called them.

Too bad he died in the same game he appeared in. :/ he was an epic villain. All it took was a f*cking grenade to take him down.

He actually didn't die, Brosky. The portal he fell in was a slipspace portal. He's still alive.

I'd be genuinely surprised if the bastard survived. He wants to go 0 for 2? Works for me.

Stupid UNSC. Always think that they've killed the Fors'.

*facepalm* oh yeah. I was so caught up in the suspense of whether an epic boss battle was going to start or not, I forgot. Cortana even said that there was a giant slipspace portal materializing underneath the Composer. Sadly, I was let down when there was no epic boss battle. Maybe next game.

The Didact in-game could have used a sword alongside his telekinetic abilities.
