343 Industries has released images of a new Halo 4 map to it’s loyal fans.
The snow-themed multiplayer map called ‘Longbow’ has been built to be used with new game modes which have yet to be revealed themselves.
“From Sidewinder to Containment to Snowbound to Avalanche, Halo has a long multiplayer map history speckled with various virtual snow-filled expanses,” the studio wrote. “That history continues into Halo 4 with Longbow.
“Longbow supports both infantry and vehicle play. On foot, players will notice it’s mostly a mid-to-long range map with pockets of close range combat in and around the base structures.
“However, there are plenty of vehicles (currently Warthogs, Mongooses, and Ghosts) and routes through the map that will make fans of vehicular combat happy.”
Elsewhere in its latest community update, 343 reveals development on the Halo sequel is entering the final stages.
“The Campaign for Halo 4 is playable from start to finish, with some levels being near complete and others still needing some good, old-fashioned elbow grease (in the form of polish and bug bashing).
“The first several weeks of Spartan Ops find themselves in a similar state, as do the ten multiplayer maps that are shipping with the game.”
