Halo 4 War Games DLC Map Pass Announced
Halo 4 is just around the corner with its release on Nov. 6, and in light of its impending release 343 Industries has announced that more content is coming to 2012’s most anticipated shooter in the form of DLC. According to Major Nelson’s blog, the Halo 4 War Games Map Pass gives gamers access to all the new content when it’s made available and comes with a 15% discount versus buying all maps separately.
The War Games Map Pass retails at $24.99 (2,000 MSP) and guarantees access to three War Games map packs when they are released on Xbox LIVE on December, February, and April. In addition to the in-game multiplayer maps, players will receive two bonus helmets to customize their Spartan warrior in-game, as well as a unique emblem.
The new multiplayer maps included in Halo 4‘s War Games Pass include:
Crimson Map Pack (December)
Maps: Wreckage, Harvest, Shatter
Witness the chaos of a clash of civilizations in Wreckage, with its blend of claustrophobic spaces and dangerous exposures and venture into the human colony environs of Harvest, and explore a human foray on an alien moon in Shatter.
Majestic Map Pack (February)
Maps: Landfall, Monolith, Skyline
Landfall’s emphasis is on infantry battles against a glittering ocean on a distant world, while Monolith exposes you to the naked vacuum of space – and the firepower of opposing teams, and Skyline’s distinctly industrial feel provides new challenges in somewhat familiar, but occasionally confined spaces.
Castle Map Pack (April)
Maps: Daybreak, Outcast, Perdition
Daybreak is set in a military facility against the backdrop of an idyllic mountain range, while Outcast plunges you into the warrens, canyons and arches of an alien edifice, and Perdition takes players into the heart of an urban sprawl, with tactical speed and situational awareness its key features.
The Halo 4 War Games Map Pass is included as part of the Halo4 Limited Edition, and retails for $24.99 (2000 MSP). For more information please visit Halo Waypoint.
