New Halo 4 Spartan Ops/MP images and details on Infinity Slayer
343 Industries is weekly tossing out the info on Halo 4. This week’s bulletin has brought us some new screens, a video and some details on Infinity Slayer.
Infinity Slayer is Halo 4’s all-new Team Slayer experience. It is an additional-but-vital mode, with new weapons, vehicles, loadouts and Armor Abilities. The UNSC Infinity takes a large role in this mode, providing players in the game with weapons and ordnance.
For the first time in Halo, you earn points not only for your team, but also for yourself. It still takes a certain amount of kills to win the game (currently one kill equals ten points, and 60 kills wins the game), but now you have your own personal progression loop on top of that.
Halo 4 also brings new medals and rewards to the experience, rewarding players not only for kills, but also style, assists, team support, and objective gameplay. Some of the things that count as “style” are killing an opponent attempting to hijack or skyjack a vehicle, ending an opponent’s killing spree, and killing an opponent that stole your ordnance.
Halo 4 features the new scoring system in all modes, but it makes its biggest impact in Infinity Slayer as players earn ordnance rewards from the UNSC Infinity.
You can read up more on Infinity Slayer over at Halo Waypoint and those new images of Spartan Ops up there, yeah they’ve been confirmed to be all new environments made specifically for Spartan Ops by Spartan Ops designer David Ellis. Sounds more and more like Halo 4 is going to be one massive game for $60.
