The Flood Return in Halo 4
The Flood are coming back in Halo 4. Despite 343 Industries announcing at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con that the flood would not appear in Halo 4, it appears that they will be present. However, they won’t be a part of the campaign. The most annoying enemy in the Halo series will be regulated to one multiplayer mode called Flood. I guess what they meant to say before is the Flood won’t appear in Halo 4‘s Campaign.
This mode is similar to the Infected mode of previous games. Two “Infected” Flood players will take on up to eight other players. Each kill by an infected adds the downed player to the Flood side until there’s no player left. The main antagonists of Halo 4 is still a new ancient alien race known as the Promethians and the Flood will only be in this optional multiplayer mode.
343 Industries also revealed two new vehicles that will be introduced in the game. The first is called the Mammoth and its a giant troop carrying vessel. The other is a bipedal mech with rockets and cannons. No word on whether you can use the mech to blow up the Flood in the new mode.
Halo 4 is set to be released on November 6th and development director Frank O’Connor and confirmed that production on Halo 4 has completed after “three years of incredibly hard work from about 300 people.”
I’ve never been a fan of the Flood myself but what do you think, GP peeps? Are you happy to see the Flood return to Halo 4 in some form? Is it fine since it’s only in a multiplayer mode or should they not be in the game in any form whatsoever? The comment section below awaits your response!
