343industries have announced a new gametype for Halo 4 called Dominion. It sounds a lot like Battlefield's Conquest mode (this is a good thing), there are three capture points around the map, holding a point will add to a team's points total. So far, so Battlefield.
The big difference is that, when a capture point is held for long enough the base that houses the capture point begins to change, shield doors and mounted guns appear, vehicles spawn inside the base etc. Capturing all three bases starts a sudden death period, if the controlling team kills all players on the opposing team before they can capture a base then the game is over.
David Ellis once talked about there being a game mode that would "scratch the itch" left by the removal of Invasion. I think we're looking at it.
