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.
