343 And Microsoft Announce Halo 4 Map Pass

Halo 4 arrives on November 6th November, and Microsoft and 343 Industries have unveiled the roadmap for post-launch content, outlining three large War Games map packs to be released across December, February and April, offering a Map Pass to get all three for 2000 MSP, at a saving of 15% against buying them separately.

In addition, Map Pass purchasers will receive two bonus in-game helmets, as well as a unique in-game emblem.

Here are the full details for the add-ons{

Crimson Map Pack (December release)

  • Maps: Harvest, Shatter, Wreckage
  • Description: Venture into the large, vehicle focused human environs of Harvest, explore a human foray on an alien moon in Shatter, and witness the chaos of a clash of civilizations in Wreckage, with its blend of claustrophobic spaces and dangerous exposures.

Majestic Map Pack (February release)

  • Maps: Landfall, Monolith, Skyline
  • Description: 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 release)

  • Maps: Daybreak, Outcast, Perdition
  • Description: 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.

Also included in the “Halo 4” War Games Map Pass are two unique in-game helmets (‘Scanner’ and ‘Strider’) that feature new geometry, and an exclusive in-game emblem (‘Falcon’).

We'll have a comprehensive review of Halo 4 next week.

If you buy the Limited Edition console and/or the collector's edition of them game this comes with it I believe.

Also, I believe you get 2 extra helmets if you buy the map pack that you don't get with the code in the Collector's.

The Collector's edition is all £60+ right now, whereas you can get Halo 4 for close to £30 online and if there are some Supermarket 'Buy Halo 4 for £25 when you get a 2100 points card for £17' then you can get the maps and the game for £42 ish.

Some of the exclusive stuff in the Collector's isn't as exclusive anymore https://forums.halowaypoint.com/yaf_postst121618_Standard-Editions-get-Specializations-Early.aspx
