Tre nya kartor, plus 5 vs 5 Extraction game type!

Halo 4 Crimson Map Pack släpps på Xbox LIVE den 10:december har Microsoft meddelat.

För 800 Microsoft Points, eller inkluderad som en del av the War Games Map Pass eller the Halo 4 Limited Edition, erbjuder Crimson tre stycken nya kartor , ett nytt speläge samt åtta nya achievements. Nedan kan du se på en episk trailer samt avnjuta några screens och självklart läsa om kartorna. Och om du har missat vår feta videorecension av Halo 4 kan du se den här.


Wreckage: A medium-sized, asymmetrical map great for accommodating a wide range of objective-based game modes including King of the Hill and Capture the Flag. It is a ravaged environment of crashed debris, where the surrounding destruction creates complex paths perfect for throwing off your opponents, or testing the limits of your Warthog. This devastated landscape provides plenty of cover, with tons of nooks and crannies at your disposal while fighting for your turn to become King. Wreckage supports up to 16 players in Infinity Slayer and up to 12 players in a variety of other modes, including Capture the Flag, King of the Hill and Oddball.

Harvest: The doomed agricultural planet where humans first made contact with the Covenant. A small to mid-size map, Harvest is ideal for Capture the Flag. Here, you’ll need to get creative to effectively use light vehicles which are limited to the exterior pathways and can’t get into the bases, making this map perfect for infantry firefights and face-to-face skirmishes. Snipers will also feel right at home; long sightlines are broken up by great cover and hiding spots. Harvest allows up to 12 players to face off in Capture the Flag, Infinity Slayer, King of the Hill, SWAT and Slayer Pro.

Shatter: Themed around natural crystalline surfaces and the huge UNSC factories mining them. This large, symmetrical map is a playground for the Warthog and Mantis – its open pathways make it easy to get around, whether on foot or in vehicles. Shatter is a great fit for Dominion and the new game type Extraction. For some close-quarters face-time, escape the open landscape and duck into a mining facility, or slip through a doorway and hunt unsuspecting Spartans. Shatter enables multiplayer mayhem for up to 16 players in Infinity Slayer and up to 12 players in other modes, such as Capture the Flag, King of the Hill, Dominion and Extraction.

Extraction: A 5 vs. 5 objective-based game type where opposing Spartan teams are tasked with extracting assets from various sites around the map. Once a team has found a site and is in position, they must plant their beacon and protect it from the opposing team while the extraction process occurs. If the defending team remains in control of the beacon, they receive one point, however if the opposing team overtakes the site before extraction is complete, the point goes to them. Once a site has been extracted, a new site becomes available. The first team to extract five points wins.

Crimson Map Pack ägare kommer även att få exklusiv acess till en premium playlist som kommer rotera dom nya kartorna och det enda stället där spelare kan uppleva 6 vs. 6 matchmaking upplevelser, det nya Extraction speläget och ett stort urval av röstning kombinationer för olika kartor och spelägen.
