Ragnarok - and the Mantis
The big news this morning is a double-punch - it's information that came out last week, unofficially, but the embargo has been raised, and 343 wants you to get an eyeful. Halo 3's Valhalla is back... in Halo 4, it's called Ragnarok. (The remake, at least what we can see of it in the new trailer on Halo Waypoint, or the new image gallery of scenery shots, looks to be pretty faithful to the original.) The second punch? The Mantis, a multiplayer vehicle we saw in renders last week, is playable on this map (and the video has footage). Greenskull already has an impressions video up - go see what he thinks of the map, and the mech! On our own forum, uberfoop kicked off a discussion thread - go add your two cents! Update: looks like I should have held off just a little - nomis78 announced a CommunityCustoms writeup, and CyReN let us know about a HaloCouncil breakdown from xClicked. Folks have been chomping at the bit to talk about this! Update 2: Until Halo Waypoint gets it up onto their own channel, there's a HD version of the Mantis vid on YouTube, posted by GoombaStompShow - nice for folks who can't get Silverlight to work.
