Latest Halo 4 Update Adds All Sorts of Multiplayer Fun

By   /   3 years ago

A new Extraction playlist, brand new Forge maps, the Waypoint file browser? What’s not to like with all these free things.

The next update for Halo 4 coming this Monday, March 4 is bringing a whole host of new content for the players. The Extraction gamemode is getting it’s own playlist, which means that fans of the gamemode can get even more of it whilst people not exposed to Extraction can access it much easier. The latest Halo Bulletin explains it a bit better:

Extraction is a 5 vs. 5 objective-based game type where opposing Spartan teams are tasked with extracting assets from various sites around the map. Once a team has found a site and is in position, they must plant their beacon and protect it from the opposing team while the extraction process occurs.

If the defending team remains in control of the beacon, they receive one point, however if the opposing team overtakes the site before extraction is complete, the point is theirs. Once a site has been extracted, a new site becomes available. The first team to extract five points wins.

As for the new Forge maps I mentioned, we’ve got Simplex and Settler. Simplex is an arena style map that was crafted by community member and avid Forger; SaLoT. Settler on the other hand is a “Ravine variant” which has been tweaked somewhat for 5-aside CTF matches.

The new File Browser which is accessible via Halo Waypoint is a feature that players have been asking for for a while. It’s a handly little tool that will allow you to look through screenshots and videos uploaded by other players without having to go through the in-game interface.

Makes things a lot more convenient for people who make use of Waypoint. Oh, and did I mention that you can use it to check out Forge Maps as well? How cool is that.
