Halo 4: new multiplayer modes detailed, coming next week

Thursday, 22nd November 2012 14:30 GMT By Dave Cook

Halo 4 developer 343 has confirmed that it is adding new multiplayer modes to its shooter next week. Check out the details below.

The studio will add a FFA Throwback playlist into the mix, which contains lone-wolf strains of Oddball and King of the Hill. These new game types go live from Monday and have been created for those looking for a hard free-for-all challenge.

The playlist will include maps Haven, Abandon, Adrift, Complex and Solace and allows for a party size of seven. Both Oddball and King of the Hill matches last 12 minutes apiece and require 100 and 50 points to win respectively.

Halo Waypoint’s Jessica Shea said of the new modes, “If you’ve been dominating these modes with teammates, see how the game changes when it’s every Spartan for themselves.

We’ll see indeed. What do you make of the new additions? Let us know below.

Thanks OXM.

    i would love to see invasion back…liked that more than dominion.
    i like halo 4. it is an awesome game. looks fantastic. definiteley one of – if not THE – best looking and sounding game/s on any console….still i feel like something is missing, some magic bungie spice. anyway. insane game 343 delivered, techically it is really mindblowing. i am sure the next 343 halo will be a real masterpiece, a videogame for the hall of fame of eternity. that´s no hype. the potential is more than there.

    good that they add gamemodes now! it was very bare bones at launch. swat is back too which is a must!

    I would like to have Headhunter back. I loved that mode to death in Reach. Sadly, it’s nowhere to be found in Halo 4 … yet!
