Halo: Reach Defiant Map Pack Announced

Microsoft has officially confirmed that the Halo: Reach map pack that was first seen in leaked screenshots last week is real. The “Defiant” Map Pack will contain three new multiplayer maps, which are detailed below.

Interestingly, this map pack was developed with assistance from Certain Affinity, the Age of Booty developer that features several former Bungie team members. Previously, Certain Affinity has developed maps for Call of Duty: Black Ops, World at War, and Halo 2.

The three new maps are:

  • Condemned: Set on a space station above the planet Reach, Condemned is designed for 6-12 players in various team modes and Free for All.
  • Highlands: A Big Team Battle, Team Slayer, and Team Objective map set in the “Wilderness Training Preserve” on the planet.
  • Unearthed: A new Firefight map set inside a titanium mine.

    These three maps will also bring along Achievements worth 150 Gamerscore. The pack will be available next month on XBox Live, and will set you back 800 MS Points. That’s a bit steep for three maps, but at least it’s cheaper than a Call of Duty map pack, right?

Considering over a hundred thousand play every day I would have to think so. Personally I would appreciate a return to cannon or a view over of historical events. Plenty of things that Microsoft and 343 Industries can do with Halo. Its not dead and I just want to see it prosper even further as one of the greatest sci-fi shooters ever.
