343 Shows Off New Halo 4 Map, Exile, at PAX Prime
The folks from 343 Studios are reworking a lot of the classic multiplayer features of Halo 4, and shared a bunch of new information last weekend at PAX Prime. Among the bits just revealed: a new multiplayer map called Exile, pictured above.
Here’s 343′s official description of the map:
“EXILE – Miraculously, the survivors of the UNSC Diadochi’s violent crash managed to not only recover provisions from the vessel’s debris field, but also use it as a makeshift shelter for several years. When rescue and recovery teams finally arrived, they were surprised to discover a healthy, burgeoning community thriving within the ship’s remains. Now this wreckage serves as a battleground in War Games. ‘Exile’ is an earthy, circular canyon bed interconnected by a network of caves and favoring fast-paced vehicle combat, while still offering frantic, on-foot action.”
The panel itself talked about stuff like the reimagining of multiplayer modes such as Capture the Flag and Oddball, and the reveal of the first Halo 4 behind-the-scenes vidoc. The full panel video will be available on Wednesday; meantime, you can hit this link to watch the vidoc and learn a little something about the motion capture, voice acting and interpersonal story making its way into the game.
Game Front is on-site at PAX Prime all weekend (Aug 31-Sep 2), bringing you daily news, hands-on previews, interviews and pictures. Stay tuned for more PC gaming-focused coverage!
