Halo 4: Majestic Map Pack will be available on February 25
The final episode of the Spartan Ops co-op campaign may have been released yesterday, but Microsoft and 343 Industries have even more Halo 4 content on the way.
The game’s second map pack, the Majestic Map Pack, will be released next Monday, February 25. Developed by Certain Affinity, the Majestic Map Pack will include three maps designed for “tight, competitive combat in small-team and free-for-all modes.” The pack will also add two new Playlists and a new Game Type to the Halo 4 multiplayer experience.
The Majestic Map Pack has been priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10), but players who purchased the War Games Map Pass or Halo 4 Limited Edition will receive a 15 percent discount on the pack.
Hit the jump for a full debrief on all three new maps, the new “Infinity Rumble” Game Type, and the new Playlists.
Multiplayer Map: Landfall
A shining city under attack… The world of Tribute is now a graveyard, but its capital was once a bright beacon of commerce among the inner colonies. Fight in the corridors and courtyards of Casbah’s port authority buildings, but don’t stand still too long. 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. Awesome jump routes let players spring around the outside of the map, incidentally offering a perfect view of the city as it is razed by the Covenant’s brutal assault.
Multiplayer Map: Monolith
Adrift in a forgotten asteroid belt… This monument and many like it were built by the Forerunners after their final victory over the ancient humans. This small map has central man-cannons, short corridors, almost no cover, and open sightlines which make the location great for a mixture of close and mid-range battle. 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.
Multiplayer Map: Skyline
Combat analysts agree… The rooftop terrain on this new space tether construction site is an ideal training environment for close-quarters infantry combat. This map, 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. Don’t think cover means you’re safe, however – this map holds explosive fuel cells that can and will wreak havoc in Skyline’s confined spaces, not to mention the long, long drop if you misstep.
New Game Type: Infinity Rumble
Halo 4’s new game type, Infinity Rumble, is exclusive for a limited time to Majestic Map Pack owners and brings a few new twists to the War Games experience. It is a free-for-all game type where players can earn personal ordnance; all special medal and style kills help you earn ordnance faster, and you can also earn assists off of enemy players for even more medal points. Players must carefully conserve and use their ordnance at just the right moment, or combine power-ups with power weapons in the race to be first. Every kill, and every death counts in Infinity Rumble, and this is reflected with a slower spawn time in the free-for-all matches.
New Playlist: Majestic FFA DLC (8 players)
Majestic FFA is an incredibly intense free-for-all playlist. Players are all alone in this playlist with seven others, vying for first place!
New Playlist: Majestic Team DLC (4 vs 4)
Majestic Team DLC is a 4 vs. 4 playlist that focuses on both team play and tight objective combat.
