On Nov. 30th, only two and a half months since its initial release, Halo:Reach will be receiving its first map pack.
Called the Noble Map Pack, this set of three maps will sell for 800 Microsoft Points, or about $10 USD. Below you’ll find a sample pic of each (click them for larger views) along with an official description from Bungie.
“Within the confines of this low orbit dry-dock, UNSC craft undergo rapid repair and rearmament in support of the enduring war effort. But for the small squads of infantry who now fight over the mirrored interior hallways and open central hangar bay, this platform no longer provides any safe harbor whatsoever – whether the close quarters combat is occurring inside or out of its artificial gravitational field.” (2 – 8 players)
“Atop this icy precipice, the Invasion continues. These modular archaeological labs were never intended to withstand such a large scale onslaught of Covenant military power, but the information being extracted here may prove vital to humanity’s survival. In response to the imminent Covenant threat, UNSC ground and air assets have been deployed to bolster entrenched Spartan countermeasures. This site must yield salvation, or it will become a grave.” (8 – 16 players)
“Tempest bends both sea and sky to an unnatural purpose, but the ground itself has quickly become another all too familiar battlefield
. Though the two opposing symmetrical bases may never reveal their ancient purpose, both now offer makeshift shelter and access to strategic routes perfectly suited for small and large scale skirmishes alike.” (8 – 16 players)
What say you? Are you ready for new maps already on this latest addition to the Halo series.
