Bungie Reveals Details for New Halo 3 Map "Ghost Town"
Coming this Spring, Bungie will be releasing the Halo 3 Legendary Map Pack and so far the only one they have revealed is ‘Ghost Town’ which was once referred to as “O.K. Corral”. According to Bungie Artist Cameron Pinard, this new “asymmetric map designed for 4v4 encounters” was designed “to be a strong infantry map where you get a nice range of close combat and longer range”. Pinard also went on to say that the map was created for specific game types like One Bomb, One Flag, Free For All and Team Slayer.
Details regarding the premise of the map below are pulled straight from the Bungie website:
“Ghost Town is the fragmented ruins of a small 24th century water purification complex that geographically lies just North and West of the jungle foothills hydroelectric facility from the Sierra 117 mission. The well-protected facility built into a shallow ravine was once home to the Global Water Campaign, where the still somewhat-pure Kilimanjaro meltwater was transported via pipelines from the river and directed to this small outpost where it became further purified, and then transported via GWC trans-African pipelines along the Tsavo Highway for distribution throughout the entire continent.”
There is a nice Q&A session featuring a discussion between Cameron Pinard, Vic DeLeon and Lars Bakken on Bungie’s site along with a few more pictures of the Halo 3 ‘Ghost Town’ map. As always, check back with us often as more details and release dates emerge.
