Halo 4's Crimson Map Pack Part Of "Buy And Play" Program

ObnoxiousGamer: While many of us thought we were getting the Crimson map pack for free, turns out we were wrong. Microsoft has stated the “free” map pack we got through Halo 4 is part of the new “14 Day-Buy And Play” program. So after December 18th those of us who haven’t bought the season pass or the actual map pack, will not be allowed to play online nor obtain the achievements for the map pack. (Halo 4, Xbox 360)

More accurately, the free trial is a lie cover-up. 343i or M$ screwed up and made the maps free. When LE owners started raising hell, they miraculously made a statement...after the fact...that the maps would be a free trial only. Very convenient. Despite 343i always communicating these things well in advance, they somehow forgot to mention the maps would be free for a trial basis? Doubtful.

Honestly I agree, wouldn't surprise me if they did make this "trial program" a cover up for their mistake.

Agreed that is wicked shady. Why not just let all the ppl that got it free keep it and call it a "give away" period? That looks alot better to the public.

Wasn't fair for the people who bought the limited edition and map pass anyway... and those guys were the hardcore, loyal fans of the series. wouldn't want to piss them off
