Thanks to 343 Industries and @HaloWaypoint I won early access to the Castle Map Pack for Halo 4! So I decided to make a walkthrough giving you all a preview of all three maps: Daybreak, Perdition, and Outcast.
Hopefully you enjoy and find this video helpful in making your decision to purchase the map pack.
Castle Map Pack costs 800 Microsoft points or is free to War Games Map Pass owners
Perdition is an industrial, asymmetrical map that features a mixture of both open and tight spaces. This map offers many different vehicle routes, with a variety of ramps, bridges and corridors. Suggested game modes on this map include King of the Hill, Team Slayer and Capture the Flag, but Perdition will support a wide variety of Halo 4’s game modes.
When playing, you’ll likely notice that the Warthogs and Ghosts are deadly on this map due to its track-like outer roadway – be sure to control these vehicles along with the power weapons in order to establish map control.
New Carthage has always been a shining example of a healthy, growing colony –but hidden below the sky-high city of Pilvrosis this dangerous secret: one of the reactors is failing, and the entire city is now under evacuation. This large urban and industrial environment offers an up-close-and-personal view of the stunning yet unstable reactor and provides multiple vehicles, long sightlines, and close quarters combat, catering to nearly any gameplay style. Wheelmen and gunners will be right at home as a well-placed Warthog can lock down a quarter of the asymmetrical map, securing valuable ordnance for the team. Learning the interior routes is essential to both escaping danger and staging ranged kills. Be sure to look for the Gravity Hammer in Power Station 3, our team’s favorite revenge weapon against a pesky sniper or a big surprise for an enemy Warthog.
IGN is back here once again with their second of three installments of their walkthroughs for the upcoming Halo 4 Castle Map Pack. Here we have a look at the map Perdition. Expect one more videos in the coming days walking us through the last map in the Castle Map Pack; Daybreak.
Watch their previous Halo 4 Castle Map Pack walkthrough video on the map Outcast.
