"Great Anvils."

343 has said they have a special announcement planned for us, which may or may not involve great anvils.
Great definition(sure, we should know this, but just for recap eh?): Of an extent, <mark>amount</mark>, or intensity considerably above the normal or average. Synonyms are grand - big - large - high.
Anvil Definition: A heavy steel or iron block with a flat top, concave sides, and typically a pointed end, on which metal can be hammered and shaped.
With these two definitions, I believe we are getting more Forge options(which I believe many have already guessed this, and are hoping for this). If you use great in amount, and anvils being a tool, the Forge is probably getting more options, with the Forge being a tool.
Y’know what else is a tool(ha.)? Custom Games. The ability to make fun game types and play with your friends. So this might also mean EVERY TOOL in Halo 4 is getting a massive upgrade or something along those lines. I’m talking theater(even though 343 plans not to have Campaign or Spartan Ops theater), Forge, and Custom Games. I’m certainly keeping my fingers crossed for more options on Forge, Custom Games, and Theater.
Can this theory possibly be what 343 might reveal? Would you like it if this was their announcement?

I’m hoping they announce something regarding forge and custom games. Both features were lackluster compared to Reach.

I’d like to see at least 1 new forge space with new textures, fine editing reintroduced, and custom game options expanded. It would also be nice to see some of the old gametypes return.

Did you see this bulletin by any chance?

Scroll down to the fifth one, forge reference, plus a huge map we never saw before. It could be true.

I’ve read the bulletin since January, highlight of Wednesday for a Halo geek like me! Considering how even the Spartan Ops designer hasn’t seen this picture(there’s a thread on the forums somewhere…), it could be news. Still, it was announced all the way from Valentines Day, I don’t see how they could have that planned from then. Could still be a new Forge environment, but I agree with Twizzsted, it looks like Ravine.

When is the date of this announcement. This sounds interesting.

It’s not, go on Ravine and take a screenshot of that area and I’ll give you 1600 microsoft points. I floated all around Ravine and their isn’t a a single area that looks like that screenie. 343 have been hinting that it’s something so I doubt it would be something we already have.
