New Halo 4 Map “Abandon”

Ign released the first of it’s exclusive map tours on Tuesday. Unfortunately I am late to the party because I was in a self inflicted Thursday War bubble.

Abandoned description from the latest Bulletin:

 On the remote world of Erebus VII, at the very edge of human-occupied space, an ONI research facility which was once teaming with researchers now lies eerily vacant. Although the hostility of this world had been initially considered by its team leaders, it is tragically clear that a great many ‘things’ had simply not been taken into account.

Here is the Video from IGN, with Kynan Pederson leading the tour.

This map actually reminds me a lot of some of the flood infected areas in Halo Wars. The things flying in the sky also look like the flying flood we see in that game…

And speaking of weird, flood like things on this map, what in the world is this?? Kynan says it’s native to this world, which makes me doubt my Flood infected world theory. These things are probably just for aesthetics, but who knows??

I have also included a few videos that analyse this map far better than I can.  First off is Nak3d Eli‘s thoughts on the new map, followed by a video from The Halo Council, which includes the call outs they have made for it.
