Another day, another alleged leak from Halo 4. A new set of screenshots from the Xbox 360 shooter's closed beta have arrived. One of these shots seems to suggest a new feature: a kill camera.
Typically a kill camera tells the player who just killed them and then shows them footage of their death from the perspective of their killer. The suspicious screenshot, posted by HaloLessons.it, shows UI elements similar to kill cams seen in other games. There's a black bar over the top of the screen with the words "Killed by". The words beneath that are blurred, but presumably they're the name of player who just took out this leaker.
Kill cameras conjure up mixed feelings among players. They allow you to figure out how an enemy killed you and it gives you an idea of their position. However, a player who found a good hiding spot or is in the midst of a killing spree doesn't want other players to get this helping hand.
If Halo 4 does indeed feature a kill cam, it would be a first for the series. It might be the cause of a few angry conversations on the web. It's not hard to imagine Halo purists bemoaning how the game is "becoming too much like Call of Duty.
Halo 4 is due this November. Hopefully Microsoft releases some multiplayer screenshots and video of their own so we don't have to keep dining on low-quality leaks.
