For those who stayed up late like myself, 343 just released a behind the scenes look at Halo 4’s next DLC, The Majestic Map Pack. As well as tons of screenshots.
The Majestic Map Pack will launch February 25th and will cost 800 Microsoft Points. It will be included for “free” to those who purchased the war games map pass.
The map pack brings you 3 new small-to-medium sized maps and a new mode, Infinity Rumble, to the Halo 4 War Games experience. These close-quarter maps shine in small team play and free-for-all.
As for the new game mode “Infinity Rumble” there are no details, but we should expect to see details in this upcoming bulletin as well as more details about the map pack. I’m speculating either an Infinity FFA variant or an Infinity Objective variant. Share your thoughts!
UPDATE: Infinity Rumble is a FFA variant with Infinity aspect added. i.e., personal ordnance.
Map Summaries and Screenshots:
Skyline: Smallest map for Halo 4. 2 Bases on 2 different levels. Great for 2v2 and 4v4.
Skyline puts you in the air on a new construction site, and its distinctly industrial surroundings and sky-high locale provides new challenges in confined spaces. Skyline, perched high above the sights of reconstruction in Cascade’s capital city, is small and symmetrical: Perfect for Regicide, with a mixture of high and low spaces and plenty of cover.
Monolith: Arena style map, 4 base symmetrical. 2 bases different from the other 2.
Monolith is an open battlefield; a Forerunner monument that exposes you to the naked vacuum of space – and the firepower of opposing teams. Monolith harkens back to more classic Halo arena-based maps, and its symmetry lends nicely to objective-based modes like Capture the Flag. Monolith is an open battlefield; wherever you look, you will witness the ferocious action that only a small and open map can provide.
Landfall: Asymmetrical, mid-size map. Contains both indoor and outdoor areas.
Landfall’s emphasis is on infantry battles amidst a glittering ocean and a city under siege on a distant world. Perfect for Infinity Slayer, this small-to-midsize asymmetrical map offers interiors with sparse cover, which encourages close-range combat, while the exteriors offer long lines of sight to stalk your opponents.
