Halo 4: 'Making multiplayer' video reveals Vortex map

343 Industries goes in-depth on the shooter's online component

Microsoft has released a new Halo 4 developer diary focusing on the game's multiplayer offering.


Featuring insight from key players at developer 343 Industries, the behind-the-scenes movie provides a first glimpse at a multiplayer map called Vortex.

Halo Nation grabbed some screenshots, and speculates that Vortex could be the Waterworks/Blood Gulch map previously hinted at by 343.

Halo franchise director Frank O'Connor said over the weekend that he was unsurprised by the recent Halo 4 leak, which has seen copies of the game sneak into the wild almost a month ahead of the official Halo 4 release date of November 6.
