As we slowly approach Halo 4's November 6 release date, more and more details are beginning to come out of 343 Industries. Today we were introduced to something that's going to make Halo 4's multtplayer stand out quite a bit from other games in the series: multiplayer specializations. Once players have ascended through the first 50 levels of the ranking system, they'll have the opportunity to pick from a group of 8 specializations. Once a specialization is picked, players get 10 more ranks to rise through, unlocking 9 different cosmetic bonuses along the way, and then a special armor mod once reaching level 10.
If you're looking forward to Call of Duty: Black Ops II because of the single player campaign, you're looking forward to the game for all the wrong reasons. A lot of Call of Duty players out there know that it's all about the multiplayer, and today Activision and Treyarch gave us our first glimpse at the mode. There's plenty of Black Ops II multiplayer action to check out in this new trailer, which is posted past the break.
It appears that users hoping to play the Halo 4 multiplayer mode in the near future will perhaps be needing to clear out some space from their system first, as "at least an 8GB USB flash drive or an Xbox 360 Hard Drive" will be required to take action. This word comes from Xbox's official feed in which they also say they "highly reccommend" the hard drive option for those seeking out a fully "optimal" experience. Good games and good graphics don't come cheap!
This week we're getting deeper than ever into the start of the next big shooter game series with Halo 4, tipped here as having multiplayer action like none that have come before it. For those of you new to the Halo series, you should know that the number "4" at the end of this title does not mean that it's the fourth in the series - even though it technically is. You'll certainly be moving forward in game mechanics as well as graphics prowess, but the timeline is all different - but Master Chief is back!
After months of injustice, the same online multiplayer challenges that Mass Effect 3 players on the Xbox 360 and PC have been taking for granted are now confirmed for the PS3. BioWare recently confirmed that it was because of Sony, not BioWare, that these online challenges were not being offered through the PlayStation Network. Sony responded to say it was looking into figuring out a solution.
A new Mass Effect 3 multiplayer event has just been announced, and in the wake of the tension that has been struck over the fact that Sony for some reason has blocked such events on the PS3, it's drawing a heated reaction. The new event is called Operation Exorcist. It tasks players with killing no fewer than one million Cerberus Phantom creatures. If they complete the challenge, they win a Victory pack.
Apparently Sony is working on getting the online multiplayer events for Mass Effect 3, which have until now only been live on the Xbox 360 and PC, to the PS3 console. A lot of hubbub was made over the last several days after it was revealed that it was Sony's fault, not game developer Bioware's, because for some inexplicable reason Sony was preventing the events from happening on the PlayStation Network.
The online component of EA and Bioware smash hit Mass Effect 3 is a little bit muddled on the PS3. To help keep things interesting in the online multiplayer world, developer Bioware has been running numerous promotions, such as the ability to gain extra XP or receiving bonuses for completing various tasks. However, perhaps unknown to those playing the game on the Xbox 360 or PC, none of this stuff has been making its way to the PS3 version of the game.
One of the more offbeat big-name shooting drama games in the industry is about to have it's next chapter, and Max Payne 3's multiplayer mode is about to get its first video demo.

What Rockstar Games is offering up today is a glimpse of what it'll look like to play multiplayer dude action.
