The story is too old to be commented.

This game just keep on getting better, I already have the season pass so I'm good to go :) this fall is full of great games, I need more money lol

Yup. Between the Gears of War 3 and Forza 4 season passes and Call of Duty elite, I'm committed to those three games well into next year. With Halo Anniversary in November as well, I think I'm set for the rest of the year on the XBox 360.

Getting my season pass 2morrow...can wait to play this DLC!!

Season pass is well worth it considering that these maps look awesome.

Rustlung you get to turn decoys into living onyx guards? That is sick!

Are these maps unlocked for competitive multiplayer or they just for horde?

I thought I knew the answer to your question and by searching I found this out and was quite surprised...

"Horde Command Pack maps are only available for player hosted gametypes like Horde, Beast and Private MP," Fergusson said on Twitter.

When asked if this setup is permanent or if the maps will be added to Versus multiplayer, Fergusson responded by saying, "definitely not permanent but timing is TBD."

"To be clear, it's called the 'Horde Command Pack'. The first DLC is mainly supporting Horde play, just like the second will be Campaign," he continued but did say that the "Campaign DLC will include maps for public Versus play."

For Horde Command Pack, only the player hosting needs to have the new map for all players to play on it." However, he says that "only the owners of DLC can build new fortifications and earn the new achievements."

So....given the fact that these are on disc- I'm not sure why they would charge you for playing in Horde mode but potentially hand these out for Versus mode later....

Thanks for the reply. That seems a little stingy for them to do that. I don't play horde as much, but I guess this will make me do so.
