New Halo 2 Maps on Xbox Live!
If you’re still a regular player of Halo 2 and have access to a credit card, you probably should be playing the new downloadable maps right now. Still reading? Well then, you might as well get the details straight from the source:
The new Halo 2 maps should be available by the time you read this. Both are remakes of Halo classics, Hang â€˜Em High and Derelict, now renamed Tombstone and Desolation, respectively. The new maps are only available via Xbox Live, and specifically, through the Halo 2 interface (from the Downloads item on the main menu), which while a blessing for original Xbox owners, presents a couple of minor challenges for 360 users. But nothing too scary.
Remember also that these downloads are tied to the Box, not the Gamertag, which means you should think carefully about which box youâ€™re downloading to if you have a 360 and an old school Xbox. Again, we understand thatâ€™s going to be a pain for some tournament and LAN players, but weâ€™re stuck with bridging the divide between olde Xbox Live and the new. This was as simple as we could make it while still making it available to original Xbox users.
I believe it’s time to break out Halo 2 from it’s dust-filled caverns of my bookcase…
