"Incorporate All Aspects of Halo Sandbox"

When 343 said this I started to wonder what in the hell it could be. But could it mean that we could be getting AI opponants in this new multiplayer mode? I mean they are a part of the Halo Sandbox. Imagine a Covie/UNSC battlefield with Spartans and Elites converging whilst grunts/jackles/hunters and marines/Spartan 4s are fighting along side you.

Really hope it doesn’t turn into something where there is like 100 players on one server. Shudders

I was thinking more along the lines of forge. Haha i guess they wont show until e3 (fingers crossed)

That’s pretty much what I’m expecting. I mean, what else could possibly take three years of development? I’m imagining huge battlefields, with banshees, phantoms, pelicans, falcons?, longswords? flying overhead, engaging in dogfights while vehicles and infantry fight on the ground. Add in a ton of AI friendlies and enemies to magnify the battles and we’ve got an amazing new game mode.

Perhaps something Like Titanfall mixed with Battlefield.

Could it mean all sanboxes from all games? So we get all previous vehicles enemies and weapons in this mode plus the new one and I can see it becoming a giant faction war type game mode with 25v25v25v25 or so UNSC,Covies (would have to choose current,pre schism,schism),forerunners and flood

I would actually like that XD. I think it’d be fun change! Something like battlefront in a way!

Definitely something like BTB, hopefully larger. If AI were mixed in, like titanfall, that would be amazing. I have always wanted a large scale halo MP, even if there are no AI, it would still be epic with a larger player count.

It could also work like battlefield in the sense of capturing points to allow your team to spawn, otherwise it may take some time to travel across a very large map.

I can see it now, players get dropped off by pelicans in the beginning, or if they are fast enough, they can spawn in an air vehicle (similar to battlefield). Some players drop in ODST pods, phantoms, covenant pods, all depending on the team and map. Falcons and banshees fly against each other while an incredible ground war takes place. Snipers perched on mountains with camo, supporting infantry.

Players take a special control point and gain access to a pelican,phantom, cyclopes,scarab, and other vehicles depending on the team and map.

Something like this, but MP. I am probably over thinking this by a long shot, but it is fun to think about it.

E3 needs to hurry its -Yoinking!- butt up. WAAAAAIIIIIIITTTTTTTTINGGGG

I think it means first you have to escort your team’s VIP to the Hill and guard it for 45 seconds, so he can become the Juggernaught and get atl east 5 kills. After that happens your team can to go to the enemies base and capture their flag. While returning back to your base two team mates have to each hold the oddball for a total of 15 seconds each, which will then turn into a ricochet ball that you have to score in the middle of the map. Now you can score your flag which will then release your teams bomb to plant back inside the opposing team’s base. Do all this with a minimum of 50 kills to win!

I call it The Septathlon!!!

I hope it’s some form of co-operative mode like firefight. Imagine a large scale firefight style mode with plenty of ground engagements, vehicle combat, dog fights, scarabs, squad commands for friendly marines, possibly objectives, playable elites.

Plenty of enemy variety:

Covenant
Promethean
Insurrectionist
Flood
Gaurdians

Would be cool

I saw a suggestion like this on a another forum and I really hope this is the case. Honestly it would be a more interesting to than the Battlefield rip that others seem to suggest. It could even include competitive scoring between teams to add a sense of urgency.

Please no, sounds boring. Also just because something is large scale multiplayer, doesn’t mean it’s copying Battlefield.

I dont think it’s going to be like anyone said (Even though they are great ideas and i love them!) Its going to more like a normal gamemode.

But what kind of normal game mode takes three years to develop? Not only that but they said it’s something that the fans have been asking for for years. The only thing that comes to mind when I hear that are huge battles

Bensolo31 does have a point. Vehicles are a huge sandbox feature for Halo, and BTB styled mode is the only thing that comes to mind. Halo’s sandbox alone is huge (If you get what I am saying) and it would make no sense if a game mode released in comparison to headhunter. It is said to have never been seen in a Halo game, and that fans have been asking for it.

The biggest thing fans have been asking for that I have seen is AI in forge, and huge warfare.

Precisely. I don’t think they would make such a big deal over team slayer variation number 928. It must incorporate AI in some way.
