Yeah, they revealed this a while ago. Flood won't be playable though- at least that's what we've heard.

It seems like making them playable might be something they'd make as DLC, but with ensemble closing after the game is finished, who would develop it?

^ it seems like they'd be playable actually.  a video has showed their base and stuff like that.
but then  again, there were no heroes from them in the demo, but at the same time you could play as the cov and unsc so it's confusing me

I thought those were just regular merc bases that you can capture and control.

They still need bases if you fight them or they wouldnt come from anything and you wouldnt be able to destroy them completely?

Chances are Microsoft will release the Flood as downloadable content at a later date.

#13 Posted by Pie (7110 posts) -

^ But who would make it? ( unless ensemble had already made it but kept it out of the main game to release later as DLC)

Does that even jive with the continuity of the Halo series? 

I mean . . . wouldn't the UNSC record an encounter with a hyper-contagious infection?

Correct. The flood are not even mentioned in the manual (which you can find online if you wish to).

I'm sure they will explain it in the single player.
Maybe everyone just dies at the end of the game.

Harvest does go kaboom but even so...

Im pretty sure they will just be running around certain maps like creeps from warcraft, it would be pretty cool to have certain sections where the flood just appear out of nowhere and rush the UNSC and Covenant bases zerg style, add a nice wild card element to multiplayer

Ive played the game from start til end. I cant figure out whats up with fact that The Flood is not discovered until 20 years later. Dont wanna spoil so i wont say why. They are definetly not playable in the retail version by the way.
