Halo 4 Infection Confirmed

halo_4_oxm_scan_septembre_2012_5

HaloDestiny.net posted the French OXM for the month, revealing the changes coming to Halo 4 Infection (now called Flood).Thanks to theHalocouncil for highlighting the article.

Here is a translated summary from HaloDestiny

And the big surprise of these pictures is the new fashion Infection Halo 4 named Flood now! And yes, you play as a player now infected, both in how to play in the appearance as you can see in the images below. Of 10 players, 2 will be infected and will use claws to attack their opponents. These will also have an increased field of vision.

Check out the new Infected Characters (Middle Right)

  • Ryan Revolver17

    so you play as a flood character or is it bots?

    • Jikar

      I would assume it’s the player who is the flood, as it says ”
      Of 10 players, 2 will be infected…”

    • a random dude

      you play as the flood, as it says, “[players] will use claws to attack… and have an enhanced field of vision”

      and, I’m assuming it’s going to be like Alpha Zombies from Reach, because there’s a flood with red armor(?) then two with the classic olive.

      and I can’t stop giggling like a schoolgirl in love!

      • http://www.facebook.com/reid.kissell Reid Azrael Kissell

        Well the armor could just be what those spartans might have customized to their characters. That looks like concept art anyways.

    • pharmassist

      the flood are the players. not bots.

  • THE DIAKONOS

    SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY

    • http://www.facebook.com/reid.kissell Reid Azrael Kissell

      Lol Ikr. I got bitched at all over the Waypoint forums because I said it wasn’t a Cyclops for months and kids got pissed saying, “It’s a Cyclops! I know because I played Halo Wars!” Lol

  • AndrewN0920

    Can you guys imagine custom games with those monsters :0

    • treyjan

      Going to make for great machinima

  • Mike

    But Spartans are supposed to be immune to flood infection. Ah, whatever. It will be fun to play anyway.

    • http://www.facebook.com/reid.kissell Reid Azrael Kissell

      Spartans aren’t immune. They’re just harder to infect because of their shielding system.

      • Mike

        No, what I mean is that the spartan argumentation’s on the spartan’s made them immune to the flood. For instance, Sargent Johnson was a Spartan 1, he survived the first flood encounter in CE because he had Borhs syndrome or something like that (it’s been a while since I read the books) but borhs syndrome was just a ONI cover up to hide the argumentation’s the Spartan 1’s received. It’s also the reason chief wasn’t infected when he got an infection form stuck to his neck on the first Halo ring (it’s not in the game, but it’s in the book).

        • Jairo

          No, Chief wasn’t infected because Cortana used an electric shock to kill the infection form. If Cortana hadn’t done that, Chief would have been infected like everyone else. Also Chief is a Spartan 2 and his augmentation are different from Johnson.

          • Mike

            haha, ya i Just read that on the wiki. My bad. I read the books shortly after they first came out so I just completely forgot about that part.

        • f1r3p47h

          u do know a spartan 1 was in the old days for instince watch 300 spartan 1s r in that the spartans in halo started as spartan 2s thats wut the unsc started with and johnsons just a marine

  • patrizl001

    well someone call me an idiot. i thought infection wouldnt change

    • Lolpie

      You are an idiot!

  • Xaiver Simmons

    AWESOME!

  • migz

    i like how infection evolved from the halo 2 days to what halo 4 is bring to the table :)

  • TripleAx3

    I was really never all that fond off the game type Infected; but this new twist makes it sound a lot more interesting and fun… Can’t wait to Claw the shit outta some N00Bs

  • Sam

    Reminds me of the Lambent, looks freaking AWESOME

  • http://www.facebook.com/reid.kissell Reid Azrael Kissell

    It’s about damn time the Flood got their own game mode. Rightfully so.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Rydiggy Ryan Allen

    CLAWS

  • NosFEARatu

    Wait, so does this mean there will be the Flood in Halo 4? I know that this is a multiplayer mode, but it would be a little odd to just add the Flood as an aesthetic change in Infection.

    • pharmassist

      the flood is just part of mp, will not be in the single player for halo 4.

  • spartan 1996

    mecha!!!!!!!!!!

  • Pyrodranox

    Does anyone else see those things next to the banshee at the right? That does seem to have the same….. i don’t know, concept, as the flood. Anyone? Anyone?
