Halo 4 Gets Two New Game Modes: Rumble Swords and Medal Madness

If there is news in the air regarding the next Halo game, it doesn’t mean you would stop paying attention to what is going on in the Halo 4 world. The developer 343 Industries is certainly not letting that happen as they recently announced a couple of Halo 4 new game modes.

Come Monday, March 3 the game will get two new game modes, Rumble Swords and Medal Madness through the latest matchmaking update.

The first one, Rumble Swords has been approved for addition to Halo 4 after a community based voting. The game type will be added to Rumble Pit where people will be able to “do a bit of slicing and dicing” and “rack up some kills for your Energy Sword weapon commendation.”

Medal Madness, the other game type is a 4 vs. 4 Halo 4 War Games based mode. Multiplayer Designer TTL Laskan explained that it will be a race for collecting a certain medal as much as you can in one minute. Each one minute period will be called a semi-round and there will be plenty of them.

Winning one semi-round will get you one point and in order to rise as a victor, your team will have to earn seven points before anyone else. He further explained how the rounds will work saying:

“we dynamically shift player traits as the new mini-rounds begin, and there are no breaks in the action (as opposed to actual round-based game types). As a quick example, when the Double Kill medal is the goal, the rules of the game mirror SWAT – you’ll immediately have no shields, no radar, and a Battle Rifle will pop into each player’s hand. Headshots galore!”

So what do you think about the Halo 4 new game modes?
