Hopefully you enjoy and find this video helpful in making your decision to purchase the map  pack.

Halo 4 Castle Map Pack Strategy: Outcast

outcastoverhead_660

Welcome to Outcast!

Outcast is a fortified network of rebel facilities that features a winding network of vehicle pathways. Built for vehicular combat such as Mantis vs. Wraith battles, this map offers a wide open outer ring with a central tunnel system that demands close quarters combat at times. Suggested game modes on this map include King of the Hill, Team Slayer and Capture the Flag, but the map will support a variety of game modes within Halo 4.

Set in a desert cliff environment, Outcast is a fortified network of rebel facilities hidden in one of Talitsa’s remote and harsh territories. This is why you can expect the medium-sized labrynthine map to be a treasure-chest of explosive, four wheel (and flying)-fueled battle. Controlling vehicle paths is critical in the circular map. As Outcast features frequent Mantis vs. Wraith battles, teams must keep their drivers informed with constant communication to get the drop on enemy movement. While driving the Mantis, target fusion coils in tunnels to flush out camping opponents, or cover your flag runner’s dash to a friendly Warthog.
