Halo 4 gets new Grifball, Infinity CTF, Extraction playlists

What would really improve the overall package would be if the new DLC was in fact a Firefight mode, it's the one omission from the game that I really don't understand. One can only wish....!

Ive been playing forge playlist all morning,the maps are great,other developers take note,gamers love free stuff.Some of the maps are as good as the main ones,i hope they keep going with it.Ive also been playing new episodes of spartan ops,alright it isnt firefight but youve got to hand it to them for trying new things,people moan about things being the same,and when they change it up people moan,you cant win.I love halo 4,single and multiplayer and they keep adding quality things.The only thing because ive being playing halo ce,four does seem a bit slower,but with the next one being next gen,that small thing should be fixed

I do love the idea of Halo DLC that is something other than a three piece map pack.

It's no deathball that's for sure. Epic should really make another unreal game.

They could implement Firefight pretty easily. Just use the Spartan Ops maps that they have going with maybe a few tweaks here and there, maybe some downsizing on some of the larger maps, and hey presto, you have got yourself a firefight map. They already have the technology to sum waves of enemies as seen from some of the maps so it can't be hard for them to make firefight.
I had fun once, it was awful.

I gotta say 343I are masters of suspense they could have just released every playlist on launch but no they force gamer's to go back to halo 4 to check out the new playlists and they have been revamped so well :D

I had hours of fun playing the various multiplayer games in Halo 3. Not got hold of 4 yet but I'll grab it soon.

The reason so many people are moaning as you put it about Halo 4 is that the campaign looks amazing but everything else has been problematic and a step backwards from other Halo games. Perhaps the graphics engine for the campaign pushes the Xbox to it's limits so much that it can't cope with the simple things like a ghost traveling at a decent speed in multiplayer. :(

I am also intrigued as to why you don't have to pay £40 for Xbox live gold in order to even play spartan ops ? Or £60 for your copy of Halo 4 limited edition to get access to the future map packs and future developments? Why is it that you have 'free' content that I have had to pay over £100 to access? :?

How you can say that 'four seems a bit slower' and that is a 'small thing that should be fixed', lag and performance issues is make or break for games take the recent Devil may cry game it has scored less on PS3 compared to Xbox 360 for that very reason. :wink:

Spartan ops episode 6 is a massive improvement over episodes 1 to5 even IGN's Halo 4 reviewers who gave the game 9.8 say that they hated episodes 1-5 apart from the amazing cut scenes. Yet this improvement took going back to the drawing board and a 2.21 gb download, which without people moaning as you put it I do not believe 343 would have bothered doing. :roll:


Xbox live is like £2 a month....and Spartan ops is free (the limited edition just gives free access to the versus maps)

So you paid over £100? but really it just requires buying Halo 4...

I have not had one instance of performance or lag issues....best looking/playing game Ive ever played on Xbox 360!

First off, why are we even talking about the limited edition? All you need for Spartan ops is the bare bones game = £35-£40 when it came out.

Second.....your a mug if you paid that price for live, I buy mine from different websites that offer a much better deal = £2 per month and most of us live members....are already just that, pretty much negating the price anyway ie; we play other games on live...thererefore its negligible!

So £35-£40 is all that is needed to play Spartan ops....no map packs, no other hidden costs apart from Xbox live which if you are a real gamer you have anyway because we play other games.....

I "myself" have a 20mb line....which allows me to play any game mode without any lag or connection issue....including playing with my friends in New Zealand (from Highlands of Scotland)

I would therefore argue that you have been VERY UNLUCKY or your actual speed is not as advertised!

I play Spartan ops.....Im SR130!
