Get a Look at Halo 4’s Infinity Multiplayer

It’s no secret that Halo 4 has a lot to live up in in terms of multiplayer, but this new video from 343 Industries fills me with confidence that they can deliver. Working in collaboration with Certain Affinity, the development team that made the best maps for Halo: Reach, 343 Industries has retooled Halo 4’s multiplayer with their own spin on things. While Ordnance Drops and Load-outs do sound like they came right out of the Call of Duty playbook, combining them with everything else in Halo 4 just seems to work. Check out this behind the scenes look at Halo 4’s Infinity multiplayer mode and see for yourself.

I don’t know about you guys, but this video made me genuinely excited in a way I haven’t been in quite a while. 343 Industries might have a huge team of talented people and giant development budget, but they seem to genuinely care about giving players an authentic, but fresh, Halo experience. I’m particularly excited for Dominion, which may turn out to be what Invasion from Halo: Reach promised but ultimately couldn’t deliver. What do you guys think about Halo 4’s Infinity multiplayer? Are you on board? Did this video make you a convert, or are you perhaps more wary now?

  1. I’m sorry… as cool as this is, all i got from (the first half of) that video was, we’re gonna make Halo 4: COD edition…

  2. So, that was from the Halo Waypoint YouTube channel. I guess Microsoft put up a copyright claim against their own channel? Anyways, got a new one.

  3. I think they might be missing the point with why people don’t play multiplayer…If often not that people want/need a story to get into it, it’s that some people just don’t like playing with other random people. I’m interested to see how deep the story is in the Spartan Op’s mode but I can’t help but think that its going to be a thin layer trying to paste over the cracks of a normal objective based co-op mode.

    They seem to be happier with making the competitive multiplayer more and more about action and less about teamwork and tactics – which the other Halo games were quite good at. Still excited for the single player though, bring on November!

  4. Man I am so excited for this, they really are making the leap they need to make for the franchise rather than simply rehashing previous entries.
