Halo 4 gets 'Extraction' playlist and new Forge maps next week

4.7
With the first season of Spartan Ops over, the focus of next week's Halo 4 update will be on competitive multiplayer.

The 'Extraction' game mode is now available in both Team Throwdown and Majestic Team DLC, but, as of Monday March 4, the mode will get it's own standalone playlist.

"Extraction is a 5 vs. 5 objective-based game type where opposing Spartan teams are tasked with extracting assets from various sites around the map. Once a team has found a site and is in position, they must plant their beacon and protect it from the opposing team while the extraction process occurs. If the defending team remains in control of the beacon, they receive one point, however if the opposing team overtakes the site before extraction is complete, the point is theirs. Once a site has been extracted, a new site becomes available. The first team to extract five points wins."

Capture the Flag playlist will also be updated with two new maps - Simplex and Settler.

"Simplex, an arena-style map from community forger SaLoT, has seen the spotlight in both the Community Forge Test and Team Throwdown playlists.

"Settler is a fast paced, semi-symmetrical on-disc Ravine variant that rests atop a verdant cliff side - it will be appearing in Matchmaking for the first time, slightly tweaked for 5 vs. 5 CTF."

Dior I am looking forward to this hopefully I will start to play halo more because at the moment I am all about COD


COD is blah. The game is getting worse and worse every year.


And yet we all still buy it.


Yeah, it's all about following the crowd lol.


Everyone says COD is bad then gets it, but really we like it. We just get mad when we play the game.

I've currently stopped playing Xbox for a while, focusing on TTG currently. I find Xbox becomes repetitive and boring. TTG has a community :)

Feet Seems like Halo gets a lot of different playlists.


Yeah they have a lot of creative and new additions that they add all the time, and the maps that they have are always changing!

Naggy Played Extraction once a few months back, not a bad addition to the playlists.
