Your guide to Halo 4's multiplayer photo
Your guide to Halo 4's multiplayer
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Halo 4 is officially out today and a lot has changed about the game now that it's in the safe hands of 343 Industries. Go read our review to learn what's new and improved!

Multiplayer especially has seen a dramatic overhaul, making it a far more engaging and competitive experience. This is far from the end all guides you'll see out there, but I figured with all the changes, I'd give a nice and simple primer over a number of things you can expect in the multiplayer, particularly since some of the core elements from the past Halo games have changed.

Online sexism in Halo 4 will earn you a lifetime ban

The Halo series has a reputation for hosting some, let's say, "spirited" language from its millions of players, as trash talk and associated slurs have become a big part of the experience. 343 Industries, however, isn't parti...

Review: Halo 4: King of the Hill Fueled by Mountain Dew

I'll admit to not being the world's biggest Halo fan, so it took me by surprise to find out that Microsoft had changed Halo 4's name since I last saw it at E3, deciding instead to call it Halo 4: King of the Hill Powered by M...

Launch trailer sets the mood for Halo 4's Spartan Ops photo
Launch trailer sets the mood for Halo 4's Spartan Ops
by Jordan Devore

After finishing the campaign in Halo 4, the story will continue episodically with free weekly installments of Spartan Ops. Previously, we've been shown more of the missions themselves than the cohesive story they will tell, which is addressed in this latest trailer.

Even if that narrative falls a little flat, this should still be reason enough to stick with Halo 4 long after launch week, to say nothing of War Games. Having seen some of the higher-end cosmetic items, it's going to take some time before I have my ideal set of armor built and Spartan Ops could prove to be quite helpful in that regard.

Master Chief arrives in Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn

When Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn started, I wasn't exactly anticipating the arrival of Master Chief. Now that we're a few weeks in, however, I couldn't be more happy to see him taking on the Covenant and making the Hastati Squ...

Concept art shows off Halo 4's War Games Map Pass

Season passes can be a gamble, even with higher-profile games. That's why I've yet to pay up front for content that might not turn out to be great despite the savings associated with doing so. Halo 4 will get in on that actio...

This has to be the definitive Halo 4 multiplayer video

While we can't directly embed 343 Industries' new video overview of Halo 4 Infinity multiplayer -- you'll need to head over to Halo Waypoint to catch it for now -- it's still worth a post. Particularly if you have not been fo...

Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn part two released

The first video from Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn was a bit slow, but that's not entirely unexpected given the way this content is cut up into weekly installments. Today's part two was a step in the right direction, I thought. ...
