New Halo 2 Maps March 30, 2007Posted by dpcough in Xbox/ Xbox 360 General.
I said I wouldn’t be here for a few days but need to update you all on this with the Halo 2 Maps!
The king of “Halo” maps has returned at last. Hang ’Em High, arguably the most popular multiplayer map for the original title, has been reimagined for “Halo 2” as Tombstone, with all-new graphics, features and a few hidden surprises. Now fans will enjoy the dangerous catwalks and trenches that made this the most requested “Halo” multiplayer map ever, with a modernized “Halo 2” flavor.
The second map, Desolation, is a symmetrical, Deathmatch-oriented map and a beautiful remake of the original Derelict. With new graphics and effects and a massive gameplay overhaul, the old favorite is now faster-paced and more balanced than ever — perfect for intense “Halo 2” combat.
Last time the subject on this was brought up Microsoft stated these maps would be exclusive for Xbox 360, guess there were some issues and now they will be released through the in-game Halo 2 downloaded for $4. You need a credit card to download these two new maps. These maps are both from Halo and not new but will no doubt look better. The maps release on April 17 and original Xbox owners also get to download the content.
