No elites… in multiplayer, at least that what I think he was trying to say.

Relax. A lot of that info probably isn’t true. At least, it shouldn’t be…

I’ll hold my opinion until I see what 343i has to say about this.

If this is true, right when I was starting to believe Frankie was a god, all my hopes and dreams will be shattered.

> Relax. A lot of that info probably isn’t true. At least, it shouldn’t be…

gameinformer doesnt lie.

As much as I hate everything I read today I love the how all the people saying 4 was gonna be good just like reach and blah blah are pissed because firefight is out

how does it feel to be on the other side now?

firefight was the least of my worries, however its a -Yoinked!- up stupid idea to get rid of it

I can’t believe people are calling it Call of duty crap?? LOL since when did CoD have a supersoldier in the 2500s fighting off ancient civilizations to try and ensure the human race, and the galaxy’s survival.

The only thing that -Yoinking!- sucks about all the info he shared was the forunner vision ( xray vision, see through walls) But im sure there is negatives to it like you can only use it once a game ect, people need to accept that halo is evolving into something it always should have been. It’s a sci-fi game after all yeah? Compare it to Me3 halo has nowhere near the amount of Science Fiction ( the books have relatively good lore and sci-fi ) as Mass Effect nowadays, BUT back at halo 1 and 2 the main concept of halo was mind blowing to most people which is why it was so popular and unique, THIS IS WHY I SUPPORT 343

ALSO there is a -Yoinking!- multiplayer story mode. COME THE -Yoink!- ON MAN! thats kick -Yoink!-!!! you guys care to much about mp and not campaign and you call yourself true halo fans. True video game fans will follow the games STORY not mindlessly play multiplayer which is what the cod community is known for.

I agree a few things are iffy but they can be addressed it is at least 6 months till -Yoinking!- launch.

OH AND MIGHT I ADD THERE IS A VANILLA PLAYLIST WHICH IS PRACTICALLY HALO 3 SO STOP YA MOANING.

this is his post

This was probably my most favorite addition I saw. From how it was described, think fo Spartan Ops like Spec Ops from Modern Warfare but with a storyline. They will span out over several months, encouraging players to return to the game. Game Informer said that Spartan Ops will be comparable in scope and size to the in single-player storyline.

Why Reds Fight Blues

I think most of us probably guessed this, but reds fight blues and blues fight reds for training purposes. They fight in something called the UNSC Infinity. The UNSC Infinity is a 3km long ship sent into deep space on a mission. It contains a virtual reality sector that creates the multiplayer experience.

Sprint

So not only is sprint in the game, but it is a standard armor ability. You do not need to pick it up, it will always be available. You do not need to buy it with your Spartan Points, you will always have it equipped no matter what. So essentially, you can have two armor abilities.

Forerunner Vision

Ever wanted to be super man? Now you can! See through walls with your x-ray vision! I can’t say I hate this armor ability, I haven’t used it yet. I’m hoping it comes with its weaknesses and it discourages camping. Sorry guys, but camping in Halo 4 will not be a legitimate tactic.

Returning Armor Abilities

The hologram, jetpack, and active camo will make a return in Halo 4. It didn’t elaborate on the abilities, but you can probably assume they’ll be about the same.

Elites Not Returning to Multiplayer

Not much detail was given as to why elites will not see multiplayer combat, it was stated in a picture caption. The caption reads, "Competitive multiplayer focues on the Spartan IVs. Elites will not be playable.

Grenades

Now the article itself did not talk about grenades, but I noticed in the picture the Spartan had 4 grenade options. I assume the plasma grenade will return as seen from an explosion in the picture and the frag grenade will most definitely return as seen by the Halo 4 first look video.

Firefight

Once again, no explanation why aside from a picture caption. The caption read, "Halo 4’s campaign is still playable with four players online (in reference to Sparan Ops, ensuring players that Spartan Ops will not replace the campaign coop experience). 343 Industries has no plans to include a dedicated Firefight mode. I’m torn on this, I don’t normally play firefight, but I feel like it is a standard necessary feature in the game after Halo 3: ODST introduced it.

Regicide

Regicide is a variation of free for all. I think it’s similar to VIP. Regicide, as stated by the article, “sets the leading scorer as the king. Every opponent that the king kills raises his bounty; other players have to kill the king to claim the reward.”

Distraction and Revenge Medals

Don’t feel bad anymore for not killing a single person in the game, you can get a medal for being a distraction! Oh, you just got killed and now you’re raging at that player? Calm down and get rewarded for hunting down the guy that just killed you!

Let me make it clear that I do not necessarily see these medals as bad. They just may reward people that don’t actually deserve one.

No More Weapon Camping

One the skills that separated veteran players from inexperienced players was the ability to time power weapons’ spawns. In Halo 4, this will be near impossible. Weapons drop down in drop pods at random locations around the map. Quoted from the article, “This gives the matches other focal points, and it also helps alleviate the advantage longtime players always used to have over newer recruits; the best weapons are not always going to be found at the same spawn locations.” Unless there is a distinguishable skill gap between players, I most definitely do not like this idea.

No More Respawn Delay

Immediately after you die, by tapping the X button you are sent back into the match. Now let’s contemplate why this might be bad. Let’s say Halo spawns are… not so great. A skilled player out BRs/DMRs/whatevers a unskilled player. Now that unskilled player can immediately respawn and find you before your shields even regenerate! I understand 343 is trying to speed up the game, but they must understand the consequences of instant spawns.

Joining In-Progress Games

So to solve the quitting problem, 343 implemented the ability to join games that are in-progress. My question is are we going to have the ability to search for games starting up instead? It infuriates me to join a game at the last possible second, not even offering me the chance to play.

I’ll be updating this post as I see fit. Feel free to correct me, add your own insight, or add what I may have missed.

Ranked and lets go…
