Bungie Reveals Details for New Halo 3 Map
Bungie seems to be just cranking out the map packs for Halo 3 these days (and then selling them for $10 a pop), and they recently revealed some details concerning one of the newer maps. The map, called “Moonbase Alpha,” will apparently sport some pretty clever features:
As we mention in the Q&A following this, “Moonbase Alpha” now has large opening doors and more unusually, a kind of unlockable jump over a deadly chasm. In its locked state, a jump over will almost always result in death. Unlocked, it becomes an easy jump and a simple shortcut. More and more, this map is beginning to appeal to my interests. At first I thought it was just a bit too large, but now that I know my way around it, it’s brisk enough to support even one vs. one games.
Bungie also mentioned that giving the map a name is something they do in the final stages, so this DLC could show up on XBL pretty soon. I’m just hoping they make the old map pack free when that happens.
