Rumor is that the image to the left (click to enlarge), is of Sandbox. A new map from Bungie's Mythic Map Pack that is set to release with the Halo Wars Special Edition.
Surely non-RTS gameplaying people aren't going to buy Halo Wars just for this...surely...?
I'm sure the halo/RTS fans will though
Blurr what is this sand box and what does it do. can someone elaborate at what im looking at here. Is this for halo 3 or the halo wars game??? Im getting my son a 360 for his b-day in march and this looks really cool.
FYI those who are dissing this map. Everything you see on the map besides the ground is forgeable. I'm so happy they took Foundry and made a larger version. And for those of who don't play Halo 3, Forge is where you can move and edit objects on the map, which in this case is everything!
They're going to force people to buy Halo Wars to download the Mythic Map pack?? I hope that's not the case.
That would be dirty. Not right to make someone buy a RTS to get FPS maps.
the maps will be included with halo wars, but I assume like all their other maps you'd be able to dl them from the marketplace for a price.
Yes the maps can be downloaded separately, but if you buy the Halo Wars CE you get them for free.
yea, i believe that you can purchase it from the live marketplace, or get it free when you buy either halo wars or halo: odst...so there will be 3 ways to get the new halo 3 maps
Some of us don't care. I am getting halo wars anyways with the added benifit of wonderful halo 3 mythic maps.
I've got Halo Wars pre-ordered because I love RTS. And it will be done well because Ensemble built it for Consoles "first" (w/r/t control). I'll download the Mythic Map Pack when it arrives on Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
Someone mentions Killzone 2 and its superior graphics.
Killzone 2 It's superior graphics
That made me laugh.
How about gameplay? Halo came out in 2007. lol killzone 2 will have better graphics but will it sell right up to 9 million copies? well it could but it's not the dark knight on bluray
Hey I like that retro look. Your head will suffer from countless headshots if you come across me there :D
I really wish Bungie woul dmake an ORIGINAL map already. I'm sick of all this similar geometry and environments crud. People complain about CoD4 but at least there are a lot of them and they aren't mostly ripoffs of a previous game. Plus they're all pretty different
what map is this a remake of....?
What? Every Halo map screams originality.
I like this new map. Can't wait till the Mythic Map Pack is released.
I'm liking the looks of this new map, too. I may even put Halo 3 back in and play again. The community over at Bungie.net has been begging for nighttime maps for a few years.
Have a heart! the cow is already dead LOL
Who complains about cod4 maps ? Thats ridiculous.... best mp game by a mile. The maps are awesome. I cant wait for Halo Wars.... ( Id rather shave 28 monkeys than play that rts s**t ). Bring out something decent MS.
