Halo 4 Infinity Challenge Playlist Update 4 – Dominion

Dominion Inf Challenge

Sorry about the lack of updates. 343 has been enjoying the holiday break and hopefully this Thursday a regular HaloWaypoint Bulletin will be posted. Last week’s playlist for the Halo 4 Infinity Challenge contest was Regicide. I can assure you, we’re all probably sick of people camping for King bonuses, and/or boosting, and/or Active Camo camping, but that’s in the past now.

For the last week of qualifying, the focus will be on Dominion. So party up, capture those bases, and hopefully start a Sudden Death or two 😉

HaloWaypoint has been kind enough to provide some pointers for Dominion, which is a new multiplayer game mode to the Halo franchise.

“In this mode, you’ll need to work with your team to capture, fortify and resupply bases in order to win. To maximize your point total in this playlist, stay focused on the objective – while others may be focusing on kills, you may able to get several hundred points by sneakily capturing and defending bases. Remember that you also get points for destroying turrets and assisting captures, so sticking with your team is your best bet. This week, the Infinity Challenge playlist replaces the normal Dominion playlist, but you do not need to be registered for the tournament to play Dominion this week.” – HaloWaypoint

Update: “Free” Halo 4 Crimson Map Pack

This is an update to my previous post about the temporary free access to the Halo 4 Crimson Map Pack.

Many people have asked questions why they can’t download it for free and apparently there is a catch/requirement to have complimentary free access to the map pack till the 18th.

The requirement is that you had to have received the code (via email associated to your gamertag or via Xbox live message) granting you access to the remaining 6 specializations. In order to receive this code, you had to have played Halo 4 prior to November 20th.

So many Europeans were never eligible to receive the specialization code, thus they are not eligible to have this temporary access to the Crimson Map Pack for free (till the 18th)

Apologizes for the confusion I may have caused,

I’m only human

Halo 4 Crimson Map Pack Is FREE! (Sort Of)

UPDATE DEC 13: Click here for more info on the requirements to download

The Halo 4 Crimson Map Pack was released December 10th for individual purchase (800 MS points) or to owners of the War Games Map Pass (LE owners included). Unfrotunately due to some errors, War Games Map Pass owners had technical difficulties downloading the DLC on December 10th.

They have stated that Map Pass owners will not be reimbursed as the issue was resolved later that day (December 10th), but they have released the Map Pack for “free”, temporarily.

You can go download the map pack for free via the in-game marketplace (while you’re in the Halo 4 in-game menus). The map pack will be free till December 18th, but afterwards you will have to pay.

Think of it as a Crimson Map Pack Demo till December 18th. So go test out the maps if you don’t have them, and then decide if you want to purchase them December 18th.
