I know I’m a tad late, but this is worth showing again…. and again…
343i is taking Halo 4 multiplayer to a whole new level ; adding what will be known as
Your SPARTAN -IV model soldier is stationed on Infinity, the UNSC’s largest fleet ship. This ship will be your multiplayer “Hub” where you will Customize your Spartan and work on your Multiplayer (Co-Op and PvP) Career. I cannot wait to experience this, especially with this—> “progress and game choices affect your appearance, arsenal, and role on the battlefield“
With Infinity, 343i is turning your Halo multiplayer experience into a story, re-defining it. This is introducing Spartan Ops and War Games as game modes to dive into. Yet, MORE stuff I’m really interested in. I’m so… SO curious…
- Spartan Ops
- The story of the UNSC Infinity intersects with the “Halo 4” campaign, then continues on in a brand-new, story-driven experience known as Spartan Ops. A first of its kind and exciting new addition to the “Halo” franchise, Spartan Ops is an episodic adventure that blends immersive storytelling, high-quality cinematics, and action-packed gameplay to deliver an unprecedented serialized experience.
- War Games
- The competitive multiplayer modes of “Halo 4,” known as War Games, take place on the combat deck of the UNSC Infinity and revive the visceral and immersive experiences that “Halo” multiplayer is famous for. “Halo 4” introduces fresh, immersive new game modes and strategies to help you progress your Spartan-IV career, while also delivering an experience that’s still distinctly and uniquely “Halo.” More details on all the modes of War Games will be released at a later time.
“Through a weekly series of cinematic episodes on Xbox LIVE, Spartan Ops will tell the continuing story of the UNSC Infinity, following the events of “Halo 4.” These episodes will center on the UNSC Infinity leaders and crew, and a new team of Spartans – Majestic Squad. These cinematic episodes will provide the backdrop for the weekly Spartan Ops gameplay missions. Playable in single-player or cooperatively (with up to three friends), explore the corners of Requiem in these objective-based missions, and help uncover the secrets of the mysterious Forerunner world.
A massive-scale adventure that builds off the “Halo 4” story, access to Spartan Ops is included with “Halo 4” at no additional charge – effectively delivering two campaign experiences in one game.*”
Total Combat Freedom and Player Progression
“Halo 4” features a vastly expanded suite of new multiplayer modes, weapons, vehicles, armor abilities, a new loadout and player progression system, and a new armor modification system that introduces gameplay-enhancing customizations for the first time in a “Halo” game. These advancements can be used in both Spartan Ops and certain War Games matchmaking playlists, empowering player choice, vastly expanding their creative options, and make the experience deeper for core fans and more approachable for newcomers.
The “Halo 4” player progression system goes beyond simple aesthetic upgrades, encouraging players to invest time and effort to create a Spartan that looks and plays the way they want. Players can earn and activate combat enhancements called “Specializations” based on the style of play they engage in, from stealth to all-out assault, and everything in between.”
I saw the fact that armor permutations will ACTUALLY have in game enhancements for the first time… and I danced… then I cried, because then I realized I’ll never be able to keep up…
They also released LE information as well, that I’ll show you tomorrow. I’m still dancing about this…
