Halo 3 fans will be getting a three new maps via Xbox Live, which will be available in February.
Halo fans, prepare to step into an expanded fight on Xbox Live. Mythic 2 Map Pack, a game add-on developed by Bungie for Halo 3 is set to arrive on Xbox Live on February 2, 2010 and will consist of three multiplayer maps previously only available on the Halo 3: ODST multiplayer disc.
Available for 800 Microsoft points, the map pack brings the total number of Halo 3 multiplayer maps to 24. The maps are named Heretic, Citadel and Longshore.
Heretic brings players to familiar ground as the Halo 2 arena Midship returns in Halo 3. The stark interior of the Pious Inquisitor might appear solemn at first glance, but Heretic’s symmetrical spaces require players to execute complex strategies in order to outplay their opponents.
Citadel may be a long abandoned Forerunner stronghold, but its small, symmetrical confines are far from secure. Two opposing bases offer little safety for players looking for solace. Instead, Citadel forces small squads to adjust combat tactics and stay in constant communication.
Longshore lacks the commercial ships that once made it a lucrative port for Old Mombasa, but it still bustles with activity. Designed for large-scale combat and well-suited for smaller affairs, Longshore’s multitude of industrial buildings, elevated walks, and open inlets come together to create a complex battleground tailored for multiple combat scenarios.
