The Halo Council writes: Signs point to Vahalla being the remake in Halo 4, first shown at today Halo UK event. Map is called Ragnarok.
I KNEW IT. I called this sh*t back last month. :D Awesome!
w00t, that's fantastic news. This always was my favorite of blood gulch's remakes.
Wouldn't it have been better to just remake blood gulch?
Seeing as how we got Blood Gulch (Hemorrhage) in Reach, I think 343i wanted to bring back an earlier map and tons of people voiced their support for a Valhalla remake. Personally, I would have wanted either Relic or Sandtrap, but this is still good.
Valhalla actually has many elements that echo Blood Gulch. The bases on either side of the canyon, power weapons on the center of the map and two snipers in either base, hilly terrain, etc.
Yeah like most Halo fans Ive been waiting for a true remake of Blood Gulch. The closest one has been the one from Halo 2 after that they have all been terrible, especially the one in Reach. Vahalla was a great map but it wasn't Blood Gulch in the least. I have no idea why they refuse to remake it and Sidewinder.
Blood Gulch wouldn't work at all with DMRs and all the other precision weapons. There was almost no cover.
I can't wait.
My best memories of this franchise were with 4 tvs, 4 consoles, 16 friends, and system link... Now everything is done online... we're slowly losing that personal feeling of sharing games with the friends around IN PERSON!
You do know that Reach, Halo 3, and most likely Halo 4 will support linking systems together right?
WHYYYYY SANDTRAP WHYYYYY NOT U!!! :C But this epic too :P
in the 1st multiplayer screenshot there is a mech on the left. i dont mind and it probably could be a lot of fun but will see what happens.
Cool I like this map
I like Valhalla but considering that the new version pretty much looks just like the last, I wish they would have gone with Standoff or High Ground instead. Standoff is probably comparable in size anyways.
This map sucks.
Did any one else notice the giant mech in the first picture? Drivable in multiplayer?
Yep. The mech is known as The Mantis and it will be playable in multiplayer.
