    Chill, play and finish the campaign. Then on the 30th when it works you can play catch up :p

    Sparrows, it's best to be a few days late. People who play online straight away are not to be trifled with. You want to arrive just as a bunch of people who only ever play SP are finishing up the campaign and playing their annual few days of multiplayer Halo.

    There will be blood.

    Plus the yanks will be whoring their Mountain Dew double XP.

    Fuckers.

    True, I can avoid the MLG fest. Will play SP first anyway. And will be on for first Halo Monday! \o/
  • Deleted user 2 October 2012 22:16:47
    I'm planning on my first Halo 4 monday being the 5th..... : )

    I hope you get it sorted though dude. We need to get a Deck 117 forge sessioned sorted stat. Or low and behold actually create our own?!

    Guided tour of the MP map Abandon here. It reminds me a bit of Guardian from Halo 3.

    Looking good, the aesthetic looks a bit Guardian but it doesn't look to play like it.

    Just two more maps to reveal. At least one of them should be a BTB, hopefully both.

    So far we have....

    Complex
    Longbow
    Haven
    Adrift
    Ragnorak
    Abandon
    Exile
    Solace....

    ...plus those three Forge environments. I wonder if any preloaded forge maps will ship with the game like Reach did.

    2 minutes in and the IGN guy's idiocy is already annoying me.
  • Deleted user 3 October 2012 09:40:39
    The last two maps need to be small to medium competitive Slayer layouts with a bit of verticality potential for map control and 'digging in'.

    So far the maps look great, but I see a few too many sprawling BTB style designs.

    I'm sure day one 343i will have a load of Forge maps they made up too. They did with 3 and Reach, didn't they?

    Halo 3 didn't have any Forge maps off the bat, I don't think.

    Reach had too many.

    Perhaps 1 of each environment would be nice.

    The maps killed Reach for me. Utter utter wank maps on the disc.

    They have Valhalla back now so that's a good start.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

  • Deleted user 3 October 2012 10:19:35
    This Abandon map is ugly as sin, disappointingly so. But if it plays great then I don't care.

    Quint - going to miss Countdown, Reflection, Sword Base, Anchor 9, Condemned and Battle Canyon.

    It's a small scale, so it lacks a lot of the better stuff. The trees look like they're made of some sort of metal, though. Those critters in the lab look like they're infected with Flood parasites.
  • Deleted user 3 October 2012 10:25:46
    Halo 3 had no Forge maps off the bat. It wasn't until Foundary was released as part of one of the map packs that Forge was really used for proper map variants.

    The season pass mentions three map packs, three environments. Guess there will be a theme.

    I think that "Unannounced Map" at the bottom of IGN's list is this one here, from the images released for going gold.

    Looks like if it is a MP map at all it's a big vehicle map for BTB, cribbed from campaign (look at what the Mantis is killing and what's in the skybox).

    Does the season pass come with the game, or the LE, or just off the dash?

    None of the maps in MP are from any other part of the game. That could a SpOps image.

    Yeah, it's probably an Ops mission.

    The season pass comes with the LE or can be bought any time on the dash. IIRC it's $25, so that's 2000 points?

    I've gone for the standard edition, and will probably get the season pass later on. Nothing about the LE bothers me this time around.

    I was looking through Halseys journal from the Reach LE last night. It's really nice quality.

    Will definitely miss Sword Base and Countdown. Super maps for team slayer.

    I cannot tell you how many kills I have enjoyed, invisible, with the sniper rifle, perched precariously on that tiny bit of ledge that lets you see slightly into the room at the top of sword base. All of you sword / shotty horders who hide in that room waiting for stupid people to travel up the lift are my prey.

    Countdown is shit will not be missed. too many corridors, too many corners. I hate it. just a game of whoever gets shotgun sword first. there is never enough space to put distance between you and the enemy.

    Sword Base I really enjoy. Countdown not so much.

    The maps I will miss from Reach are all DLC: the Anniversary map pack, Tempest, Condemned (not the best, but I like it) and Anchor 9.

    @Fat_Pigeon

    I agree about Countdown, I could never get on with that map, I wasn’t too fond of Sword Base either. My favourite smaller maps from Reach are Powerhouse and Boardwalk, I liked Condemned to but hardly ever got a game on it.

    Mind you I prefer larger maps anyway. So I’m hoping at least one of the maps they’re yet to announce is big vehicle one.

    Countdown's one of the best maps for Infected, though.
  • Deleted user 3 October 2012 20:07:17
    For me it was the spiritual successor to The Pit, instead of Achor 9.
