Halo 4 Media Blowout – New Features, Map, Mode and Killcam

As of yesterday, the media embargo on Halo 4 has been lifted, lucky for us Halo fans, and there is a lot of good stuff to be witnessed. Below is a round up of all of the interesting new pieces of information and footage that was released.

Flood Infection Mode

In France, the Official Xbox Magazine got an exclusive look inside the offices of 343 Industries in Seattle, Washington. The most important thing that came out of that visit was a reveal of a new Infection mode titled Flood.

A look at the new Flood game mode

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking and you’re right. The infected game mode allows infected players to play as the Flood, an enemy type we first saw all the way back in the original Halo. This revised mode of infection includes a 12 person playlist: 2 infected players and 10 Spartans. The infected have claws for a deadly melee attack and enhanced vision. Not much more is known at this point but it seems like 343 Industries is pulling out all the stops for Halo 4.
