Ryan Bloom / Oct 24th, 2012 1 Comment
343 Industries and Microsoft announced details of three extra downloadable map packs that will be available for Halo 4 within five months of its release on Major Nelson’s Blog today.
Each DLC map pack will include three new maps, giving Halo 4 nine extra maps released post-launch. The first map pack is called the Crimson Map Pack and will be released in December. In February, the Majestic Map Pack will debut. The Castle Map Pack is expected to be available in April.
The Crimson Map Pack due out in December will include the Wreckage, Harvest and Shatter maps. Harvest is a colony world where the first contact with the Covenant was made. Players will explore an alien moon in Shatter. Wreckage puts gamers in a chaotic environment where civilizations clash.
April will see the release of Daybreak, Outcast and Perdition in the Castle Map Pack. Players will fight in a military facility with the backdrop of an idyllic mountain range. The warrens, canyons and arches of an alien edifice provide for an exciting multiplayer environment in Outcast. Tactical speed and situational awareness will be imperative in the urban sprawl of Perdition.
Map packs will cost 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99 each. Players who purchase the War Games Map Pass for 2,000 Microsoft Points or $24.99 will receive these map packs as well as two in-game helmets and one in-game emblem. Purchasing the pass will save gamers 15 percent of the price of buying all three map packs separately.
Halo 4 is scheduled to release on Nov. 6 exclusively for the Xbox 360.
