Here’s Your Quick Look at the Halo 4 Multiplayer Map, Longbow

Welcome to Longbow, a frozen Halo 4 multiplayer map based on the northern most point of the planet Concord. It is a medium-to-large map featuring two bases on either end that support close range combat, and includes open terrain and winding paths between which supports vehicle combat carried out on Warthogs, Mongooses and Ghosts.

The glacier-themed map is large and symmetrical, which will allow it to support many players in a variety of multiplayer modes such as capture the flag and team deathmatch, as well as new, currently unannounced, game modes.

The goal of 343i in the design of the map was to “make a symmetrical map area feel natural and almost accidental, while still telling an epic sci-fi story.”
