343 Industries Unveils “Halo 4” Multiplayer Details

Dramatic enhancements to classic modes, “Capture the Flag” and “Oddball” and the reveal of “Grifball” debuted alongside new multiplayer map “Exile”; new ViDoc offers a riveting behind-the-scenes look at the making of this year’s most anticipated blockbuster
This weekend 343 Industries unleashed a volley of exciting news about this year’s most anticipated game, announcing details on the reimagined “Capture the Flag” and “Oddball” modes, the addition of the community-created “Grifball” mode  as well as the premiere of an epic 10-minute featurette on the making of “Halo 4,” entitled “A Hero Awakens.”

Additionally, 343 debuted the first look at a brand-new multiplayer map in “Halo 4” called “Exile”:

EXILE – Miraculously, the survivors of the UNSC Diadochi’s violent crash managed to not only recover provisions from the vessel’s debris field, but also use it as a makeshift shelter for several years. When rescue and recovery teams finally arrived, they were surprised to discover a healthy, burgeoning community thriving within the ship’s remains. Now this wreckage serves as a battleground in War Games. ‘Exile’ is an earthy, circular canyon bed interconnected by a network of caves and favoring fast-paced vehicle combat, while still offering frantic, on-foot action.

A video of the 343 “Halo Reborn” panel at PAX Prime (where “Exile was announced), featuring gameplay footage of “Exile” and the newly reimagined modes will be available, starting Wednesday 5 September, on Halo Waypoint at: <gp_link type=”http” loc=”//halo.xbox.com/halo4/en-US#!videos/panels/e36292ea-fea3-4290-8649-fb9fbbc0b071″>http://halo.xbox.com/halo4/en-US#!videos/panels/e36292ea-fea3-4290-8649-fb9fbbc0b071.

Fuelling the excitement, 343 Industries premiered “A Hero Awakens” – a new behind-the-scenes featurette on the making of “Halo 4”. Featuring never-before-seen development footage, the 10-minute ViDoc provides a captivating look at the creative process for the most anticipated game of the year. The video also offers a sneak peek at how “Halo 4’s” voice and cinematic performance capture actors bring the series’ iconic heroes to life through emotionally riveting performances, showcasing how the development of Halo 4 rivals the production of a blockbuster Hollywood movie. Check out the ViDoc.
