On 30 November, Halo Reach will be ‘reaching out’ for its first map back.
Are catering for a variety of modes, Invasion, Free for All, Team Objective etc. I'm glad that Invasion is getting a new map, with it being the mode I most often play (Apart from Arena/ Arena Doubles), I'd played "Spire" and "Boneyard" to death.
Agreed. Glad to see Invasion getting some love, and it's a snow map! Now all we need is some desert action in the next pack :) All of these look like fun, and its good that they're all original, rather than remakes.
YES!! More Maps and Achievements! But come on guys, don't you like pictures with you Map Pack news? Get your stuff from the source! http://www.bungie.net/News/... But damn. That's 800 MSP for the Noble Map Pack, 560 for The Writer, and 1200 for Limbo. X( Besides the 5-7 Retail titles I want this year. Gahhhhh.
Updated for your pleasure :)
In UK/Ireland at least. Buy 2400(could be 2 arcade games or dlc) points worth of stuff and get 800 back. Gonna get Comic Jumper and Hyrdrophobia, as there was no way i was going to pay full price for Hyrdro until a deal of the week came out, this should do it. Then gonna use the rebate to get The Writer DLC :)
i was just wating for a reason to get a point card, i wanted the new alan wake DLC now thanks to reach i will get me map pack and alan wake dlc
I just bought the game last month, why the hell do I want more maps already? I havent even played all of the current ones
you havent played it enough then :) I am so ready for new maps and its glad to know that the one map has a huge a forge pallet
Lol so true, I love boardwalk and zealot but new maps would make the map voting SOOOO much better.
Hope snipers gets a playlist before the map pack :) and yes I am so ready for some new maps!
I played the hell out of Reach and I'm ready for new maps. I can't wait for this.
its only been out for a little over a month...yes, there are barely enough maps, but forge world community creations havent been added yet, let alone the game types...and bungie are having a forge creation contest right now as well...the winners map gets included in matchmaking
can't get enough of Halo
because they wanted xtra money. I call it 1for2. 1. Make game 2. Remove awesome content. 3. sell the remaining of the game at full price 4. add content to xbox live store for a price 5. Months later add content for Collector or Game of the Year editions. Some companies are doing this because a lot people are willing to pay for it. anyone that disagrees explain to me how some companies release dlc weeks(sometimes days) after game releases?
Bungie doesn't gouge their customers like other companies do. You are being totally unfair to them. Two months after a game's release is not too soon or too late to release DLC.
its just 800ms points are you broke? i think you are talking about MW2 i've never seen a HALO GOTY edition dumb fanboy GTFO
And remember they can add user generated forge maps to the playlist for free at any time.
They will be they have a contest going on right now till November 28th to get a lot of new maps for MP. So the December playlist for Reach is going to be MASSIVE.
That contest was a good idea. It gives them a chance to get a hold of the best of the best and put them in matchmaking. They're using $300 worth of prizes as a bribe to get people involved and putting countless hours into testing them. Anyone who insults Bungie should be ashamed of themselves. I will gladly support them by buying a map pack. One of the maps is also a forge map. Giving us new scenery and new spaces to build even more maps.
What do you mean already? That is 2 and a half months after the release of the game. Perfect timing if you ask me.
Two and a half months after launch, add the whole month they can't add to the game thanks to manufacturing and distribution and you have plenty of time for this to be justified.
I hope the last one is actually Invasion and not just Invasion Slayer. Invasion Slayer is fun but I like the Invasion game mode and sadly it's only playable on 2 maps currently.
the scenery and detail of the maps look nice but it doesnt seem like they will lower the price or make some kind of bundle of maps for the same price so i guess ill buy them : (
Ehmm..No thanks im done with fucking dlc.
all the maps look like they were ripped out of the campaign.they should charge $5
what you don't realize is that bungie built the campaign around the mp maps
its great that they're putting out new maps but am I the only one who thinks that 3 maps for $10.00 is pushing it, not as bad as MW2 ridiculous $15.00 price tag but just because its popular doesn't mean you should shortchange your fans. I just don't understand how a few maps can amount that price, this is the worst part about dlc why not some free maps instead or a lot more than 3 for the cost, its not exactly taxing, costly or difficult to make these maps for developers who have the tech in place from the game already, especially considering how many people will purchase them.
$10 of your cash for countless hours of man time it took to make the three maps sounds reasonable
this is 1 map pack...and they will be adding community creations in forge world (both popular maps and gametypes) into matchmaking for free aswell
buy this just for the new Achievements. What would be cool is if they added a few new Armory items for free and/or a 10,000 credit bonus for people who purchased the map pack the first two days it was out, and included some new Forge items with the new forgeable map.
Love Halo Reach.
First and foremost, map packs are great, however 3 maps for $10 with no new guns/weapons, armor abilities, armor, forge items, multiplayer game modes, FireFight maps or vehicles is disappointing. I believe 1/6 the price of a game does not equal "only 3 maps" and that is my viewpoint.
