The first Halo 4 multiplayer news

Halo 4 multiplayer news as discerned by Gamefan:
  • Story wraps around the multiplayer experience for the first time in the franchise.
  • Players now control Spartan IV’s, which promise to be just as powerful as Master Chief.
  • There is a reason why red and blue soldiers are killing each other.
  • Beyond the typical cosmetic customization options, players will be able to augment their Spartan IV’s abilities and weapon loadouts, altering their gameplay styles for the first time.
  • A lot of focus has gone into giving players a better sense of weight.
  • Audio design has been much improved and really gives a player a sense of where shots are coming from.
  • Maps have been built from the ground up.
  • The Battle Rifle is back and has been redesigned.
  • Two maps have been announced so far: War House and Wrap Around.
  • War House takes place in a civilian manufacturing plant that is travelling in a near space orbit above a gas giant. It has a large decorative Cyclops Mark II mech in the center which serves as the focal point for this slayer style map.
  • Wrap Around is another small slayer style arena, set in a Forerunner facility, that contains catwalks, ramps, and plenty of man-cannons to keep the action fast and frantic.
