While PAX East has arrived and left us, for those that weren’t able to attend in person you can watch the panel for Halo 4 that 343 Industries hosted. Entitled “Past, Present, and Future”, it discusses the future of Halo 4’s Infinity mode but more specifically the War Games portion.
One of the most talked about topics amongst the Halo community has been the addition of a 1-50 ranking system, much like the one Halo 3 had for its ranked playlists. The “Competitive Skill Rank” (CSR) is being introduced with the next title update (April 8th, alongside the Castle map pack) and shall measure how well you do in War Games and matches you against equally talented opponents.
Also showcased during this panel was the newly released Forge Island map, which is free on Xbox LIVE. Remember back in the days of Forge World or even Foundry? We do as well and with the ability to have much more space on Forge Island, we can’t wait to see what the community can brainstorm.
Grab something to drink and some popcorn, here’s the entire panel!
