Even Spartan super-soldiers aren’t safe from season pass setups, as Microsoft announces a bundle for the next few months of Halo 4 DLC. Detailed on Major Nelson’s Blog, it’s the War Game Map Pass, which will bundle together the next three content drops for the shooter through the spring of next year.
It’s priced at $24.99 (2000 MS Points, or free if you got the limited edition Halo 4 console bundle) with content drops in December, February, and April for a total of nine new maps, along with a pair of exclusive helmets.
Here’s the official details:
Crimson Map Pack (December release timeframe)
Maps: Wreckage, Harvest, Shatter
Description: Witness the chaos of a clash of civilizations in Wreckage, with its blend of claustrophobic spaces and dangerous exposures and venture into the human colony environs of Harvest, and explore a human foray on an alien moon in Shatter.
Majestic Map Pack (February release timeframe)
Maps: Landfall, Monolith, Skyline
Description: Landfall’s emphasis is on infantry battles against a glittering ocean on a distant world, while Monolith exposes you to the naked vacuum of space – and the firepower of opposing teams, and Skyline’s distinctly industrial feel provides new challenges in somewhat familiar, but occasionally confined spaces.
Castle Map Pack (April release timeframe)
Maps: Daybreak, Outcast, Perdition
Description: Daybreak is set in a military facility against the backdrop of an idyllic mountain range, while Outcast plunges you into the warrens, canyons and arches of an alien edifice, and Perdition takes players into the heart of an urban sprawl, with tactical speed and situational awareness its key features.
Halo 4 will be available on November 6th.
