Halo 4 looks set to deliver an incredible new chapter in Master Chief’s story, and with some new details that were revealed in a quiz to retailers, November 6th can’t come soon enough.
Over on the Microsoft retailer education site ExpertZone, a quiz went up for Halo 4 detailing new facts and features before then testing viewers on the knowledge. Nicely, for all those who can’t access the quiz, LittleEnglishHaloBlog (via Eurogamer) have detailed their contents and spilled it all over the net.
The slides confirm that Halo 4 will boast ten new weapons, two of which were shown during the Microsoft E3 press conference. These ten new weapons will more than likely be Forerunner developments, with The Light Rifle and Scattershot being the two weapons that were previously shown.
On the vehicle front it also looks like two new, and still unknown, vehicles will be bounding around the environment along with “many favourites from the past.”
Multiplayer information has also been given out, teasing that group support will be included, mentioning that “improved support to create, organise and track groups” will feature. This could mean that Halo 4 will have clan support – a feature not seen since Halo 2.
Competitive multiplayer, via Halo: Infinity’s War Games mode, will include 10 maps with more coming via DLC, although none were named in the document.
The big-daddy of Halo 4‘s co-op campaign play comes in the form of Spartan Ops and it’s DLC episodic experience. It’s been detailed that every season a whopping fifty missions will be released, five missions every week for ten weeks. Each mission will be introduced with a “high-quality cinematic.”
The first season will be completely free, hinting that further seasons will come at a cost. The slide then points out that it’ll give players up to 12 hours of gameplay in either single-player or co-op:
“How many games give you free DLC for 10 weeks?
“Spartan Ops increases game value and overall enjoyment of Halo 4 with up to 12 hours of incremental gameplay in either singleplayer or co-op multiplayer mode.
“It’s like getting two campaigns with one game!”
