Halo 4 multiplayer keeps on getting bigger with the addition of dominion mode, which apes Battlefield’s Conquest mode, but with a ‘killer’ twist.

OXM – by way of The Verge – reports that Halo 4 Dominion mode sees players vying for control over three territorial points on a map. OXM also has screens here.

The kicker is that as soon as one team captures all three points the game enters ‘sudden death’, giving the losing team a countdown. If they fail to get the territories under control before the clock runs out, the game is over. It sounds tense.

The fun doesn’t stop there, because if you hold one point for a long time, it will become upgraded with holographic vehicle deploy stations, turrets and door shields to block entry. Fortified bases also take longer for the other team to re-claim.

Earlier today we posted up 21 glorious Halo 4 campaign screens. Check them out here.

Halo 4 is out November 6 on Xbox 360.
