@  Sikslik7 : (24 April 2014 - 11:59 PM) @Twinreaper REmember RTX before Halo 4?
@  Edward Kenway : (24 April 2014 - 11:59 PM) And with PlayStation being on top of so many Indie titles, I have a feeling PS is going to jump ahead again by a few million.
@  Twinreaper : (24 April 2014 - 11:59 PM) In hate to say it, but a team that does this 24-7 and gets paid, gets tired real quick. In the end, they do it cause it's their job and motivation runs out quick. if the community was invloved, it would triple their workforce and we the community could accomplish what they couldn't. By community, I mean us veteran programming/hacking types.
@  Ledgend1221 : (24 April 2014 - 11:59 PM) I really wish Microsoft was more...loose with these things. We could've had Halogen. That I'm sure would have sold a few copies of Halo on PC.
@  Edward Kenway : (24 April 2014 - 11:58 PM) Halo might beat Uncharted, Uncharted might beat Halo.
@  Twinreaper : (24 April 2014 - 11:58 PM) @Sik, this is why the community (modders and hackers) always go to the panels and ask questions. We are usually the first line of defense against bugs, slip-ups etc when it comes to the community. If they asked or offered us a chance to help or be on the update teams, we could get more stuff done than they could.
@  Edward Kenway : (24 April 2014 - 11:57 PM) The ball is in ANYONE's court this fall and winter.
@  Edward Kenway : (24 April 2014 - 11:57 PM) @Sikslik7 I can't say that, Uncharted and The Order are coming too.
@  Twinreaper : (24 April 2014 - 11:56 PM) Exactly Ed. M$ looses a vast amount of money due to certain console preferences
@  Sikslik7 : (24 April 2014 - 11:56 PM) @Edward Kenway 7 million to 5.5 million, its anyone's game, and Sony have launched most tof their titles so far, the next wave will easily be in M$ court
@  Edward Kenway : (24 April 2014 - 11:56 PM) I know a lot of people who hate Halo because they only own a PlayStation and refuse to buy it, if they had it and were able to try it on their terms, they could get hooked.
@  Sikslik7 : (24 April 2014 - 11:55 PM) 343i and Microsoft need, parden my wish, a perfect launch of the next Halo and need to have DLC, fixes, and all sorts of stuff right off the bat, and then keep it coming for at least a year and a half
@  Twinreaper : (24 April 2014 - 11:55 PM) That is why you leave exclusive content locked to a particular platform, just like we see now with most titles
@  Edward Kenway : (24 April 2014 - 11:55 PM) I think one single game to bring people in is a fantastic idea.
@  Edward Kenway : (24 April 2014 - 11:55 PM) People might buy an Xbox, but if they already own a PS4 or PC, which most do, they won't go for it just for Halo.
@  Twinreaper : (24 April 2014 - 11:54 PM) @Ed I know that, but in the end, it will still build loyalty to the franchise as a whole and really improve Microsofts image. That alone could boost sales much more than any console could alone.
@  Sikslik7 : (24 April 2014 - 11:54 PM) Halo is barely in the top ten games played after 6 months from a release, they need a community and a great launch
@  Twinreaper : (24 April 2014 - 11:54 PM) @Sik Exactly. It's a win either way
@  Edward Kenway : (24 April 2014 - 11:54 PM) @Twinreaper Not necessarily, Halo is the flagship, it sells Xboxs, if Halo can be accessed on a PC or PS4, it won't sell any Xboxs.

Flood Mode In Multiplayer
Posted Image
Brand spankin’ new Flood screenshot 1!

Flood is the spiritual successor to Infection, a fan-favorite game type from Halo 3 and Reach. Our goal was to recreate it and push the mode to be new and different from previous versions. As both War Games and Spartan Ops fit within the fiction of the UNSC Infinity, we wanted to use Halo fiction in this mode too, which led to us to create the Flood form in Multiplayer. Flood-converted humans are much faster and focus on melee attacks, so they were a natural fit for Infection’s successor.

Halo 4’s Flood mode is a round-based, ten-player game. It is a true asymmetric experience with the added twist of dynamic teams; this really changes things up as each game is different, especially in the incredibly intense and high-action final seconds.

At the beginning of each round, two players spawn as Flood forms and eight players spawn as Survivors. Survivors are standard Spartans equipped with shotguns and magnums, while Flood move very quickly and can only use a melee attack. When a Survivor gets killed by a Flood, the Survivor will convert and respawn as a Flood. The round ends if a Survivor makes it to 3:00 or if all players are converted to Flood.

One of the things we concentrated on for War Games was establishing player roles in Multiplayer, so we put a great deal of attention into being the King, Flag carrier, Grif, etc. Being the final Survivor is another role we focused on, and it’s a very intense experience having nine other Flood rush at you. Some (and by some, I of course mean David Ellis) would even say it’s poo-inducing.

We went through several iterations of tuning settings, mostly around getting the Flood to feel right in the sandbox and making the Flood experience noticeably different than the Survivor experience. To ensure the Flood’s gameplay had a unique feel, we honed in on the following elements:


The Flood Character Model
A unique character model for both first and third-person.

The Claw
A special melee weapon tuned just for the Flood.

Flood Armor Effect
A special effect that trails behind Flood characters.

Flood Screen Effect
A first-person screen effect that shows the haunted view of a Flood.

Dynamic Music
When playing as the Flood or final Survivor, dynamic music plays in the background to intensify the experience.

Flood Gameplay Tuning
Flood move faster, react differently to bullets, and have specially tuned armor abilities, the core of which is an enhanced Flood Thrust Pack.

The Floodsassination
How could we not?!


The biggest challenges when designing this mode were getting the Survivor vs. Flood balance just right, keeping the experience interesting and dynamic (whether it’s two Flood vs. eight Survivors or nine Flood vs. one Survivor), and building a system that made initial-round spawning more consistent. Where we landed, for the lattermost thing in particular is that players will not spawn randomly as Flood or Survivors at the beginning of a match. Instead, your initial spawn is based on previous rounds.

Flood features an exclusive set of medals that can only be earned by playing this particular game mode, and it also has its own set of custom game options. The former is detailed below.
