Microsoft announced today that wave one of the Halo multiplayer map packs has been set loose on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
For the price of 800 Microsoft points ($10), players can get their hands on the new Heroic Map Pack immediately, which includes three new maps, each with their own style of play. While the download is the “first in a series of downloadable content” arriving for the game, players can expect the current price to remain for only a short time as the pack will become free of charge come this spring, just before the release of the second Heroic Map Pack.
The three new maps available are:
Standoff - A “symmetrical valley, entrenched bases and fields of boulders is ideal for mid-sized objective and Slayer game types."
Rat’s Nest - Brings “something completely new to the multiplayer experience: an indoor vehicle paradise. Strongly influenced by the Campaign mode, this map is ideal for big team battles.”
Foundry- “The ultimate Forge map. Players can edit every single object in this voluminous industrial warehouse, placing stairways, walls, bridges, and tunnels to create an entirely new play space and build almost any kind of map imaginable.”
Head over to the official site for instructions on how to "redecorate" a whole new set of walls.
