As we all know, the new map “Warhouse” that ships with Halo 4 features a Cyclops Mk.II. While it is unknown whether or not the Cyclops will be featured in campaign or multiplayer, it’s a nice feature to have, especially for Halo Wars fans. It shows that 343i has yet to forget about Halo Wars, which is very important to many fans of the game, including me. But, with the very little information showcased in the video, is it possible that there are more vehicles from Halo Wars?
Since there is so little information available to us, it’s completely possible that Halo Wars vehicles will be making a comeback. The Cyclops featured in the map is also an updated version from the original model, with more weaponry. It’s no mistake that this map is one of the first two to be seen. I’m sure that 343i picked the maps that would be unveiled very carefully. This Cyclops may just be the tip of the iceberg. 343i said that they wanted to make Halo 4 different from the rest, while still keeping it Halo. What better way to do that than introducing vehicles that are already in the universe, but have never been in a Bungie game?
The UNSC is going to need some new weaponry to battle this new enemy, that, according to 343i, is nothing like Master Chief has ever fought. It’s likely that the UNSC would recycle old material, while making it better, like they did during the Human-Covenant war.
