Maybe hard to see, but in the background you see Elites wearing their Halo 1 - Reach armor.

Edit: And I will not get into any argument here.

You're on the right track, though. Covenant armor, weapon, and vehicle design/functionality varies from fleet to fleet. 343i has confirmed (through the visual guides) that all Covenant design variants, in every Halo game, are canon; that is, with the exception of Halo: CEA retconing the designs of Halo: CE. The armor worn by the Storm-class Sangheili of Halo 4 is specific to the colony of Hesduros (which is where Jul 'Mdama recruited the bulk of his armada), which was likely what FUD was showcasing.
