1st Halo:Reach Map Pack Announced!

                                                            Say Hello to the Noble Map Pack

Today, Bungie revealed to us, the first map pack that will be released for Halo: Reach. The pack itself contains three maps.

Anchor 9 :
This map is located on one of the Orbital Dry-Docks, situated high above the planet of Reach. Normally, UNSC ships are repaired and rearmed here. But now the mirrored interior hallways will become home to some frantic multiplayer action. Oh, and you might want to watch yourself when you enter the artificial gravity area just through that forcefield, to the right of the picture.

This map has two symmetrical Forerunner bases on an abandoned shoreline. The bases themselves are reminiscent to the ones on "Relic", a map from Halo 2, but that appears to be where the simmilarities end. The picture itself would seem to suggest that this map may well be suited for Big Team Battle.
This is the third and final map.This map is said to be made for the Spartan vs Elite gametype "Invasion", but is also suitable for Big Team Battle. No doubt many epic matches will be played here.
*Note: Breakpoint is an Invasion map so this picture isn't the only playable area. To see the other spaces visit
The Noble Map Pack will be released on the 30th of November 2010 for the respectable price of 800 Microsoft Points.

Any Idea on the price? if it's any more then 400ms points then it's a waste of money.

Paul Cuffe said...

It's 800ms points, just like all map packs from the previous games.

and only 800ms points for 3 maps, why release updates like this so quickly after releasing the game?

Surprisingly some people are already finished with the multiplayer -.-
