Some information on the upcoming Halo 4 multiplayer experience has come to light thanks to Microsoft and 343 Industries. Halo 4 multiplayer will feature class specializations. This will allow the player to customize their character to their liking. Specializations will feature 8 classes: Wetwork, Pioneer, Engineer, Tracker, Rogue, Stalker, Pathfinder and Operator. These classes are unlocked once the player reaches level 50.
You'll get the Pioneer and Wetwork specializations for free, but with the Limited Edition, you will have access to all eight. The rest of the classes will be available for purchase at a later date for those who didn't get the Limited Edition. More information can be found over at the Halo.Xbox.com blog written by Bs Angel.
