    Rumor: Halo 4 Multiplayer Details Leaked

    The first details from Halo 4‘s multiplayer came out in a leak on Friday from the May issue of Game Informer and the news is bound to shake up the fans of the series with some of the changes planned. What does 343 Industries have planned for the first game in the new trilogy, and how will gamers react to the changes.

    Here are some scans from the May issue of Game Informer

    Here are some details from the May issue of Game Informer about the Halo 4 multiplayer.

    Spartan Points

    Spartan Points is the new currency system in Halo 4. They will buy things such as armor, armor abilities, Spartan Ops missions (see below), and some

    Spartan Ops

    This was probably my most favorite addition I saw. From how it was described, think for Spartan Ops like Spec Ops from Modern Warfare but with a storyline. They will span out over several months, encouraging players to return to the game. Game Informer said that Spartan Ops will be comparable in scope and size to the in single-player storyline.

    Why Reds Fight Blues

    I think most of us probably guessed this, but reds fight blues and blues fight reds for training purposes. They fight in something called the UNSC Infinity. The UNSC Infinity is a 3km long ship sent into deep space on a mission. It contains a virtual reality sector that creates the multiplayer experience.


    So not only is sprint in the game, but it is a standard armor ability. You do not need to pick it up, it will always be available. You do not need to buy it with your Spartan Points, you will always have it equipped no matter what. So essentially, you can have two armor abilities.

    Forerunner Vision

    Ever wanted to be super man? Now you can! See through walls with your x-ray vision! I can’t say I hate this armor ability, I haven’t used it yet. I’m hoping it comes with its weaknesses and it discourages camping. Sorry guys, but camping in Halo 4 will not be a legitimate tactic.

    Returning Armor Abilities

    The hologram, jetpack, and active camo will make a return in Halo 4. It didn’t elaborate on the abilities, but you can probably assume they’ll be about the same.

    Elites Not Returning to Multiplayer

    Not much detail was given as to why elites will not see multiplayer combat, it was stated in a picture caption. The caption reads, “Competitive multiplayer focues on the Spartan IVs. Elites will not be playable.


    Now the article itself did not talk about grenades, but I noticed in the picture the Spartan had 4 grenade options. I assume the plasma grenade will return as seen from an explosion in the picture and the frag grenade will most definitely return as seen by the Halo 4 first look video.


    Once again, no explanation why aside from a picture caption. The caption read, “Halo 4′s campaign is still playable with four players online (in reference to Sparan Ops, ensuring players that Spartan Ops will not replace the campaign coop experience). 343 Industries has no plans to include a dedicated Firefight mode. Gamers could be torn on this, and it seems it is a standard necessary feature in the game after Halo 3: ODST introduced it.


    Regicide is a variation of free for all. I think it’s similar to VIP. Regicide, as stated by the article, “sets the leading scorer as the king. Every opponent that the king kills raises his bounty; other players have to kill the king to claim the reward.”

    Distraction and Revenge Medals

    Don’t feel bad anymore for not killing a single person in the game, you can get a medal for being a distraction! Oh, you just got killed and now you’re raging at that player? Calm down and get rewarded for hunting down the guy that just killed you!
    Let me make it clear that I do not necessarily see these medals as bad. They just may reward people that don’t actually deserve one.

    No More Weapon Camping

    One the skills that separated veteran players from inexperienced players was the ability to time power weapons’ spawns. In Halo 4, this will be near impossible. Weapons drop down in drop pods at random locations around the map. Quoted from the article, “This gives the matches other focal points, and it also helps alleviate the advantage longtime players always used to have over newer recruits; the best weapons are not always going to be found at the same spawn locations.” Unless there is a distinguishable skill gap between players, I most definitely do not like this idea.

    No More Respawn Delay

    Immediately after you die, by tapping the X button you are sent back into the match. Now let’s contemplate why this might be bad. Let’s say Halo spawns are… not so great. A skilled player out BRs/DMRs/whatevers a unskilled player. Now that unskilled player can immediately respawn and find you before your shields even regenerate! 343 is trying to speed up the game, but they must understand the consequences of instant spawns.

    Joining In-Progress Games

    So to solve the quitting problem, 343 implemented the ability to join games that are in-progress. My question is are we going to have the ability to search for games starting up instead? It infuriates gamers to join a game at the last possible second, not even offering the chance to play.

    Re: Rumor: Halo 4 Multiplayer Details Leaked

    Great info, but those previous halo series pictures give me a sense of false advertising, the new engine will look so much better. If they go retard and just do basic overhauls to the reach engine... they'll shoot themselves in the foot. Not in short term.. but long term imo. Think about it... if graphics are NOT cutting edge... it wont hold it's own at time of release and will just be another halo game with the standard current fans.. what non-halo fan would buy a shitty graphic game? ..... I expect big things from Halo 4, and some awesome modding potential!
