Forerunner Freezer / anticipating new maps in Halo 4

It’s been a few weeks since the first concrete Halo 4 news was released, and I’ve stayed out of the fray as far as opinion about it for two reasons: 1.) we already have plenty of opinions by people who know more about it than myself, and 2.) I don’t enjoy giving my opinion on something unless I feel like I know what I’m talking about. (Note I said I don’t enjoy giving my option … I have no problem giving my opinion when I don’t know what I’m talking about, I just don’t enjoy it as much 🙂 )

At this point I still don’t feel like I have any idea what is really going to with Halo 4 – everything from the story to the multiplayer is still pretty vague – but something did start to get me excited enough to mention something about it, and that was the multiplayer maps Warhouse and Wraparound.

There’s nothing like the prospect of a new multiplayer map to get my Halo-senses tingling, and with good reason – new spaces to explore fictionally, the prospect of finding my new favorite maps, and knowing that a play space created to be awesome will soon be in my hands.

The most striking image to me so far has been the above – some concept art for Wraparound. It symbolizes Halo 4 pretty well in that it has something to do with Forerunners, but other than that it’s hard to tell what exactly is happening.

While we’ve been told Wraparound is a Forerunner facility that creates sunlight, that is clearly a feint – if you look closely at the above shot again I think you’ll agree with me that it’s the inside of a gigantic Forerunner icebox.

The Forerunner – inheritors of the Mantle, or giant gluttons for frozen dairy?

Only 343 knows the answer to this question. The rest of us will have to wait …
