Microrsoft has updated the Halo blog with some interesting concept-art and new information on what they call ‘The Warhouse’. You can check out the latest additions, as well learn about the new ship below.
The Warhouse is an industrial mining ship and it is a massive one at that. Though it is a working title the team at 343 shares a few details on the blog. The ship was designed to be a multiplayer map in Halo 4. On the blog post listed below the team describes the map
We wanted this playspace to be similar competition-wise to older symmetrical maps in previous Halos, so we sought influence from those, and also from the industrial close-quarters combat in more recent games. There are many paths from the center room, allowing you to surprise opponents from unexpected directions and separate them from their comrades. There are also numerous over-and-under pathways that can be used to sneak up behind opponents who are holding their ground. Since this map is symmetrical, one team doesn’t have an advantage over the other based on where they spawn or what part of the map they control.
