I Heard through the Twitters that Mark V is coming to Halo 4, a Pit re-make, a new map called Vertigo, and a new game mode. Nothing more to report at this time.

^Yeah, I have no idea how that happened.

Space magic.

The ODST and Mk V look more accurate than anything we saw in regards to old armor getting updated to 4, although the turnarounds will be the true judge. Nice of them to offer the maps separately from the cosmetics so people only have to buy what they want. New maps look decent, and while I can see people getting annoyed by the interactive element on Vertigo, I think it could be fun (at the very least it looks really easy to Forge blockers over it, although hopefully they will also provide specific Forge pieces for that purpose as well.)

All the new content looks really cool, but Halo 4 died a quick death many months ago. This isn't going to revive it. Nice to see the ODST armour though, at least there will be one set of Halo armour in the game.

  • There has been much talk. And i have listened...
You know, I think that this whole "big bundle" business model is kinda detrimental here. I feel like they would be able to make a lot more money and prolonged the game's lifespan a bit if they'd had a team just to work on making all the little excess stuff (armor+weapon skins, stances, armor) and released stuff more frequently to a world with micro-transactions, allowing people to just buy the one or two skins or whatever they wanted. They should still keep releasing the map packs as usual, but hey, why not also open the map packs to purchase individually after a few months.
I don't know, it just seems like crappy buisness...ing... On microsoft and 343's part to just lump a bunch of random extra crap in with the last map pack.

But you can buy just the maps. Only advantage of bundle is a two week exclusive game type.

I was hoping for a more explosive outburst by poking the bear :P

I don't see why it wouldn't be available everywhere like everything else.
