Halo 4 lead multiplayer map designer Kynan Pearson shows off "Harvest" from the Crimson Map Pack. See Harvest brought to life for the first time in a game!
Harvest - IGN's Halo 4 Crimson Map Pack Developer Walkthrough
Huh? Why do they say we have never visited Harvest in a Halo game before? Harvest was one of the main settings in HALO WARS ... or am I wrong?
I wish map's with falcon's or pelican's please
No small "competitive" maps, seriously? This map pack is such a letdown. There were so few "competitive" maps when the game released, but I managed stay optimistic about the first map pack rectifying that. I guess I was wrong to even assume there was a chance for this game being mainstage again. Don't get me wrong I love the way the game plays, but there is a serious lack of small maps meant for "competitive" 4v4. The maps that are meant for that are mediocre at best; they are far too compartmentalized with serious line of sight issues.
I can't wait to play that map in team SWAT!
People need to understand that there aren't many small competitive maps anymore due to Sprint being default and Jetpack being an Armor Ability. They need to tailor the new maps to these two features. I'm all for small maps myself but we're probably not going to see any Anyways, this map looks WAY too similar to Complex. Yes, it shares the same UNSC palette but still, it doesn't even look that good.
I would like to say that I may know why they are sending this map pack first especially this map. The reason is SPARTAN OPS. I know you might be like thats a stupid reason but think about it, I'm thinking that a spartan is going to have a flash back or Doc.Halsey might remenber something about Harvest but it also could be something to do whif the events that happend in Harvest but remenber this is my opinion not statement, but im almost 100% sure it has something to do whif SPARTAN OPS.
we neeed swat maps like the good old reach maps
I personally think this looks like a great map. It'd be perfect for those 8v8 Objective matches when/if they add BTB Objective into the mix.
@ Cedric 116 B45 That's the first thing that popped into my head when he made that comment. Harvest just isn't in Halo Wars, the game begins on Harvest. No love for Halo Wars, I guess.
Looks cool, it's great to finally see Harvest in-game (other than Halo Wars). I wonder though, canonically, is this purely a simulated environment based on a previously existing location or have the UNSC started re-terraforming Harvest?
We didn't go to harvest in Halo Wars, however it was referenced."Small maps" are going to be a rarity seeing as sprint and jetpack force multiplayer devs to change how they make maps, you must constantly delineate and breakdown lines of sight that's why out of all the remakes we could have seen we got Valhalla. This is basically the new small.Spartan ops missions will not happen on any of the current season pass maps because they are separate from the vanilla game.Starting at 5:25 there's a question about lessons learned since Halo 4's release and how it's affected development and Kynan says this map had been in development since early on and most of the early CTF testing went on there... We only have ten maps... This was basically done this map (and probably Shatter and Wreckage) should be released to the public for free they shouldn't be a part of the season pass map pack. If crimson maps pack was in development alongside the other ten maps they should be released for free wit
Just looking at this map gets me excited owo. I can't wait to check this out next week on Monday! 8D
Team Regicide Anyone? Seriously hope that sticks around, this map looks like it would work really well with it.
Meh...This game is a let down and 343i lied about its features. Its like a TU of Reach, fixing what we wanted to be fixed, but keeping the same game-breaking elements. Like I did with Reach, I will not buy any moronic map packs, and I will frankly be boycotting this game through this option. If they decide to magically make it mandatory to have map packs, well, bye bye Halo, it was a fun 8 years.
I don't want to see or hear ANYTHING regarding CTF until we're allowed to play with a full 8-man team. Can 343i tell us why Halo can no longer support full roster gameplay? Halo is the only current consoler shooter that cannot handle 8v8 Non-Deathmatch and frankly that's pretty frightening. Absolutely shocked.
Sounds like a few haters and a few fans. lol personaly, I am happy to see a moving train in a map again. Really reminds me of Terminal from Halo 2. Always was a favorite of mine. I would love to see a new map with a monorail or train goin though it; really added a fun challenge on whether you would make it to the other side of the map... but I guess this is good enough for now. map looks sweet in my opinion and cant wait to play INF Slayer on it, along with CTF
The crimson maps look good but I hope there are some smaller forged maps coming to matchmaking soon! The infinity slayer playlist is getting really repetitive..
