See Halo 4's version of Valhalla and its new mech in action

Yes, you can teabag in the mech.

Microsoft has released a new Halo 4 video showcasing a new multiplayer map and a new vehicle.

Ragnarok, teased in screens already released, is Valhalla reborn. Valhalla is a multiplayer map that launched in Halo 3, and was itself as a spin-off of Blood Gulch, the much-loved map from Halo: Combat Evolved.

It's a valley with some mountains in the distance. Doesn't it look lovely.

Also shown in video form for the first time is the Mantis, a mech vehicle Master Chiefs can climb into. The video shows a Mantis stomping on a Ghost, shooting a Banshee out of the sky and smashing tanks up. You can pop a grenade in them to blow them up, as with other vehicles.

And yes, you can teabag while in a Mantis.

The video is below.
