Microsoft has released a new vid for Halo 4, showing off gameplay on a variety of maps and game modes. 

It’s not your average multiplayer vid, mind. This one shows some of the world’s best MLG players discussing the game at a special event at E3 2012, where they played Infinity Slayer and Regicide matches across the Haven, Adrift and Longbow maps.

In addition to this, Microsoft has also announced that the upcoming Minecraft Skins Pack DLC with feature the man himself, Master Chief. He’ll be joining SquidMan,  ‘Splosion Man Scientist Danklef, Old-School Trials Evolution... man, and Wizard, alongside all the previously announced skins. No date yet but the price will be a snip at 160 MSP.

The Halo 4 multiplayer vid is below. You can read our latest preview here. And the game itself is out on November 6th.

Love what I see so far, but will the only way to gain weapons be through the ordinance drops or will there be weapons laying on the map also?

@16 No assassinations? You do know those change gameplay at all, except that if people choose to do them for fun they are more likely to die and their target may escape.

You do realize Sprinting and Jet-Pack add another level of complexity to the game and in no way unbalance it, right?

You do also realize that kill-streaks drop for everyone on a team in >Infinity Slayer< at a certain point, right?

And you do realize that there is no weapon bloom, no armor-lock, Overshield is back, as well as the BR and Carbine from Halo 3 are back and that it's more like Halo 3 than Halo: Reach, right?

And finally, you do realize that you haven't actually played the game yet, so you could actually grow to like Halo 4 more than Halo 3 if you gave it a chance, right?

^ 19 is right, there's no better way in saying Halo 4 could be (and it will be) a good game.

Hall's Facebook page posted a pic of the skin along with two others, one being a grunt. Sadly the third one is too small to figure out. It may be the Arbiter...

Walshy still in the game? Wow. He's looking older. Game might be interesting, though I still think I will be getting this to find out what happens to chief and not for the war games.

The new assasinations look awesome and so do the maps. I'm happy that the re-added the BR and removed AL, still a little sceptical about the weapon drop though....
Too bad it'll take till november for it to launch, Can't wait!

HOW is the needler a power weapon? I get it was OP in reach, but someone with sprint could run away from it easily and now everybody has sprint.

People want this game to be like Halo3... well, sorry to say, but Halo isn't CoD, Every halo changes, if you want Halo3, go and play Halo3, this will be Halo4, the setup a refined version of what bungie tried to do with reach and pushed perhaps a little too far with, though is understandable why they did, seeing as it was their last Halo game.

AA's add complexity to playing the game, make it harder 'oh, the noob just jet packs into the air to kill me' well then shoot them down 'the noob hides in Armour lock' Then hold back and wait.

Reach made the game play more interesting, by changing the playing field from everyone's the same, to optional specialized game play. This game is doing the same.

did a guy in the video really say I didn't know much about 343 until today' facepalms.

worried its gonna mess with cannon like reach did still -but this is 343, and I enjoyed reach 97% and bungie were awesome. So looking forward to halo 4, halo 2 anniversary and hopefully another wars...maybe a fable heroes style halo heroes game... churn them out, I'll play them :)

will never get a reach dlc with Jun dying but hey.

Looking forward to the seeing where the story ends up going, but the online portion is looking too much like Reach, and that multiplayer was a terrible slap in the face to those who grew up on Halo 2. Oh well, I guess I will stick to Gears 3 for my multiplayer fix :)
