New Halo 4 video shows off multiplayer modes, maps, and more

Spartans, rejoice! Halo Waypoint, the official site for the popular Xbox 360 series, released a new video for Halo 4 today.

The overview focuses on the upcoming first-person shooter’s multiplayer modes, giving fans a look at three maps and a few of the new weapons. The scattershot, a shotgun with bullets that bounces off walls, looks especially delicious.

Developer 343 Industries shows off some other details, such as a new reward system that spawns weapons and items in the middle of the map (similar to rival Call of Duty’s perks). Check out the video below to get the full skinny.

Halo 4 comes out on November 6.
