Vergil keeps watch over New Mombasa after the slipspace event during Halo 2.
ODSTs are dropped into the city on an unknown mission from Captain Dare.
The Covenant still have a tight grip on the city.
Stealth is a must...
...but we all know Grifball isn't quiet!
Taking the challenge of building on a non-Forge World canvas, and to build a map with the tone of Halo 3 ODST's noir feeling, I crafted this map with special love.
A Phantom flies overhead before the match begins, scouting for any survivors.
Virgil, the A.I. Superintendent of New Mombasa is the referee for this spontaneous game of Grifball on the streets.
He supports both teams with goofy faces depending on what's going on.
Neutral Face for standard feelings.
Angry Face for when players of the enemy team are close to your team's goal.
Worried Face for when the enemy team is one point away from winning.
Vergil also keeps score for both teams as the match plays.
(He keeps score until that match is over. Once I figure out how to get him to display 5 points properly, he will keep score just right.)
This map took some time to concept and get just right.
I really wasn't sure how to get the street layout right, but a little bit of soul searching around on H3:ODST got me a great locale.
This isn't based on any particular street in the game, but I used some key visuals to really grab the look of New Mombasa.
I'm happy the way this map has come out and I hope everyone enjoys the map as much as I did making it!
