About a week ago a new trailer for halo 4 was released giving us some juicy new details on the various modes and gameplay features throughout the game. After watching this trailer an obsessive amount of times, here’s a rundown of some of the new features detailed in the trailer:
If you’ve been keeping up with the suite of multiplayer footage that has graced the web in recent months then you will already know most of the features shown in the trailer. Saying that, there are a few details that hardcore multiplayer fans are going to love. First up is the ability to join a game in progress, now this may seem like a very small detail, but in so many past games you have had to wait for your friends to stop playing before you can join them. Another feature they have added is something they are naming the situational record, and if you have played pretty much any first person shooter this generation this will be instantly recognizable as your standard killcam. 343 Industries is also adding a few new game modes into the mix, called Dominion and Flood. Dominion is being described as a spiritual successor to the Territories game mode in which you will capture bases which you will then be able to upgrade with things like shields and turrets, where as flood is the advancement of the infection gametype, only this time the infected are the flood. This is particularly interesting as the flood players have features exclusive to them, and the weapon they will be using is basically a ‘giant claw’. Having checked out some of the gameplay videos, this appears to work in a similar manner to the energy sword, but players are able to leap very large distances while playing as the flood making this weapon extremely deadly.
We also got a very minor glimpse of spartan ops in this trailer, while there’s nothing really new detailed here you do get a glimpse of the cut-scenes taken from the game mode. These cut-scenes look incredibly detailed and it is very apparent from just a quick glance that the graphics are absolutely gorgeous, and a significant step up from halo reach.
Halo 4 releases worldwide on November 6th and if your anything like me that date can’t come soon enough.
