Halo 4 Majestic Map Pack detailed and dated

Microsoft has detailed the Halo 4 Majestic Map Pack which will arrive on February 25.

The Majestic Map Pack brings three all-new small to medium sized maps in Landfall, Monolith and Skyline.

Additionally, the map pack introduces a new free-for-all game type, Infinity Rumble, that is exclusive to the Majestic DLC playlist for a limited time, as well as 10 new Achievements worth a total of 250 Gamerscore.

Here's the details:

New Battlegrounds: Majestic Map Pack

Landfall: A shining city under attack. The world of Tribute is now a graveyard, but its capital was once a bright beacon of commerce among the inner colonies. Fight in the corridors and courtyards of Casbah's port authority buildings, but don't stand still too long. Perfect for Infinity Slayer, this small to midsize asymmetrical map offers interiors with sparse cover, which encourages close-range combat, while the exteriors offer long lines of sight to stalk your opponents. Awesome jump routes let players spring around the outside of the map, incidentally offering a perfect view of the city as it is razed by the Covenant's brutal assault.

Monolith: Adrift in a forgotten asteroid belt. This monument and many like it were built by the Forerunners after their final victory over the ancient humans. This small map has central man-cannons, short corridors, almost no cover, and open sightlines which make the location great for a mixture of close and mid-range battle. Monolith harkens back to more classic 'Halo' arena-based maps, and its symmetry lends nicely to objective-based modes like Capture the Flag. Monolith is an open battlefield; wherever you look, you will witness the ferocious action that only a small and open map can provide.

Skyline: Combat analysts agree. The rooftop terrain on this new space tether construction site is an ideal training environment for close-quarters infantry combat. This map, perched high above the sights of reconstruction in Cascade's capital city, is small and symmetrical, perfect for Regicide with a mixture of high and low spaces and plenty of cover. Don't think cover means you're safe, however this map holds explosive fuel cells that can and will wreak havoc in Skyline's confined spaces, not to mention the long, long drop if you misstep.

New Game Type: Infinity Rumble

Halo 4?s new game type, Infinity Rumble, is exclusive for a limited time to Majestic Map Pack owners and brings a few new twists to the War Games experience. It is a free-for-all game type where you can earn personal ordnance; all special medal and style kills help you earn ordnance faster, and you can also earn assists off of enemy players for even more medal points. You must carefully conserve and use your ordnance at just the right moment, or combine power-ups with power weapons in the race to be first. Every kill, and every death counts in Infinity Rumble, and this is reflected with a slower spawn time in the free-for-all matches.

The Majestic Map Pack will be available on Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft Points. Players who purchase the Halo 4 War Games Map Pass or Halo 4 Limited Edition will receive access to both the Crimson and Majestic Map Packs as well as the final map pack when it releases in April at a 15 percent savings versus purchasing them individually.

Not happy with the lack of new BTB maps. I'm getting sick of having to play Ragnarok 9 out of every 10 BTB games.

Agreed! Missing a previous map favorite like Blood Gulch (Coagulation). Getting very repetitive with the likes of Ragnarok and Exile being played over and over again.

Thats always the problem with giving the people the ability to vote for the map, hate it in black ops when you end up playing hijacked for 3 matches in a row. I personally feel the maps should just rotate through in alphabetical order.

The pricing of map packs never ceases to amaze me, six and a half quid for three maps is way too much given the amount of people that will buy them.

800 points isn't too bad, considering the call of duty map packs are 1200. We need more big team maps though.

Looks great and fantastic price for a map pack these days what with Call of Duty raising it up for all...

Yeh it's nice that they have kept it at 800, they could have seen that COD charge 1200 and still shift high numbers. I suppose you do get more stuff in the COD DLC though

Amazing, three more maps we can play in a playlist for a month until nobody plays them anymore and they never show up in MM. why cant they make some sort of compatibility download to enable them to show up in normal MM also?

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
