Halo 4 players are set to get some new community Forge maps next Monday alongside a brand new Extraction playlist.
The two new Forge maps are Simplex and Settler. 343 Industries will also be tweaking the spawn times for the Majestic Team DLC playlist. On top of this the developer will also be putting a new Extraction playlist live:
Extraction is a 5 vs. 5 objective-based game type where opposing Spartan teams are tasked with extracting assets from various sites around the map. Once a team has found a site and is in position, they must plant their beacon and protect it from the opposing team while the extraction process occurs. If the defending team remains in control of the beacon, they receive one point, however if the opposing team overtakes the site before extraction is complete, the point is theirs. Once a site has been extracted, a new site becomes available. The first team to extract five points wins.
The following settings will be used in the playlist:
|Team Setup||5 vs. 5|
|Score to Win||5|
|Active Sites||Map Dependent|
|Site Movement||On Extraction|
|Arming Time||3 Seconds|
|Extraction Time||45 Seconds|
|Conversion Time||3 Seconds|
