Halo 4 Crimson Map Pack dated

The Halo 4 Crimson Map Pack has been dated and priced by Microsoft.

According to the details we've received it'll be the first of three add-ons released for those with the War Games season pass, although it will be available to purchase?separately?too.

Here's some details of the maps:

Wreckage: Wreckage is the manifestation of the chaos of war. A medium-sized, asymmetrical map great for accommodating a wide range of objective-based game modes including King of the Hill and Capture the Flag, it is a ravaged environment of crashed debris, where the surrounding destruction creates complex paths perfect for throwing off your opponents, or testing the limits of your Warthog. This devastated landscape provides plenty of cover, and tons of nooks and crannies are at your disposal while fighting for your turn to become King. Wreckage supports up to 16 players in Infinity Slayer and up to 12 players in a variety of other modes, including Capture the Flag, King of the Hill and Oddball.

Harvest: Harvest is a canon concept brought to life the doomed agricultural planet where humans first made contact with the Covenant. A small to mid-size map, Harvest is ideal for Capture the Flag. Here, you'll need to get creative to effectively use light vehicles which are limited to the exterior pathways and can't get into the bases, making this map perfect for infantry firefights and face-to-face skirmishes. Snipers will also feel right at home; long sightlines are broken up by great cover and hiding spots. Harvest allows up to 12 players to face off in Capture the Flag, Infinity Slayer, King of the Hill, SWAT and Slayer Pro.

Shatter: Shatter is themed around natural crystalline surfaces and the huge UNSC factories mining them. This large, symmetrical map is a playground for the Warthog and Mantis its open pathways make it easy to get around, whether on foot or in vehicles. Shatter is a great fit for Dominion and the new game type Extraction. For some close-quarters face-time, escape the open landscape and duck into a mining facility, or slip through a doorway and hunt unsuspecting Spartans. This map has variety for different types of players. Shatter enables multiplayer mayhem for up to 16 players in Infinity Slayer and up to 12 players in other modes, such as Capture the Flag, King of the Hill, Dominion and Extraction.

Crimson releases on December 10 for 800 MS Points and as mentioned above is free for those with the War Games Season pass.

I have never really been interested in the Halo multiplayer, as well tbh I never last more than 3 secs without dying :P Halo 4 multiplayer has some new features that I like, and I have been performing not bad so far. As such, I will get these multiplayer maps as they sound pretty cool! :D

From the screenshots that I have seen, the new maps look tasty, not a bad price either at 800msp for the map pack.

More than happy to spend 800 points on some nice new maps, yeh i agree with some with some who say that there was not many maps but i try to think of it as quality not quantity.

'New' Multiplayer Maps DLC? And people are already bored with the existing offering? License to print money then if a few maps are all it takes every few weeks, till your next fix is required. Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! I need it..I really need it..
