The Halo series in known for its multiplayer, but Halo 4 is looking to infuse some story in the multiplayer experience. 343 Industries has released a 13-minute trailer talking about co-op and multiplayer and how it ties to Infinity, the UNSC capital ship at the center of it all.

The video, released on Halo Waypoint, talks about a new scoring system that lets players get credit for accomplishments that don't always equate to kills. It also talks about Dominion mode, which is basically large maps with vehicle combat at its core. Halo4Nation spotted a new MP map called Vortex, which is speculated to be a remake of the Blood Gulch/Waterworks map.

Halo is scheduled to be released for Xbox 360 on November 6 with a second disk for the multiplayer aspects of the game.

      I should not be so emotionally moved by this video, but I am. I don't think I've been this excited for a game in a long time. Maybe Halo 3/Modern Warfare 1(which I didn't really get until I played the beta and was blown away).

      I was worried for a bit, early on. Could 343 really pull it off? What are these guys made of? Those worries were squashed early and they are absolutely demolished now. This game just looks massive. Halo fan or not, you must admire the ambition. To be quite honest, they didn't have to try this hard, but I'm happy they have.

        Agreed. I haven't been a fan since halo 1 but this looks amazing and ill be buying it day 1 for the multiplayer alone.

          Well that's interesting for sure. This MP is certainly far from Halo 1, REACH appears to have been closer. What has made you come around after all these years?

        Sort of tangential, but I don't know if I want bungie on the series anymore anyway. That's not meant as a slight against their games because I've enjoyed them. It just feels like a good time to pass the torch to some young blood.
