Halo 4: Multiplayer Map Vortex Highly Accessible, Forge Items and Maps Revealed

Massive info blowout on Forge.

343 Industries have revealed some new information on the Halo 4 map called Vortex. The map has been modified a bit to fit the game and was originally intended to be a much larger map, with a greater focus on vehicles. Here’s their explanation for trimming it down. One of the main reasons was that the map was so big that it was effectively not creating engaging matches.

“One difficulty we encountered when shrinking the map was that it made vehicle paths more constrictive, so we had to slowly expand the roads,” says Bs Angel, who is a contributor to Halo Waypoint. Via Examiner.

“This expansion impacted the placement of the bases, which we had to adjust in order to line them up along the highly geometric, symmetrical axes of the Forerunner architecture. Through subsequent iterations, large rocks were added and the bases became more closed off to focus the encounter spaces.”

The map has been modified enough to accommodate players of all playing style. They have added winding caves and other things like rocks to breaking the pacing up a bit.

“One small piece of advice, though: getting caught in the open on the vehicle paths will result in a one-way ticket to Splattersville. Consider yourself warned.”

We also have details on every Forge map and items, check them out below. (Again courtesy of Examiner)

IMPACT

Description: This observation outpost was established to examine the site of a spectacularly violent meteor collision recorded by an ONI patrol drone in 2547. When researchers first arrived, they were startled to find a non-native fragment of the impacting agent had actually survived and was of unknown origin. More recently, interest in the site has grown as the fragment has proven to have originated from long before the earliest of known Forerunner artifacts.

RAVINE

Description: When ONI dispatched its first expeditionary group to this sector, it was believed that these impressive citadels were individual constructs strategically organized to protect this portion of Requiem. Teams on the ground now believe that they are actually the ramparts and battlements of an impossibly large structure below the surface of the sea.

EROSION

Description: With hundreds of human colonies now razed in the wake of the Covenant War, the UNSC has dispatched large numbers of advanced pioneer groups to survey potential new worlds. The discovery of Eudemon X49-05 was considered lucky, but concerns remain about the moon’s structural integrity.
