Big changes to ‘Capture the Flag’ for Halo 4. No longer will you be able to manually pick up or drop the flag. Instead, it’ll all be done automatically.
That’s right. No longer will you be able to drop the flag to use your primary, in order to defend yourself. In Halo 4, you’ll be stuck with just your sidearm and the flag until you die or capture it. Oh boy.
This will actually be interesting to see how this plays out. I’m all down for increasing tactical and team play in any game. Especially the FPS genre. Hopefully this will draw players together. Unfortunately, though, this seems like it could just as easily lead to people raging at each other.
Halo 4 comes out November 6. Exclusively on the Xbox 360.
