Microsoft Details Halo 4 Crimson Map Pack, Launching Next Month

Posted on Thursday, November 29 @ 16:10:05 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

Microsoft has revealed the official details for Halo 4's first piece of multiplayer DLC, the Crimson Map Pack. The add-on will include a total of three new maps as well as a new mode called Extraction.

This new game type has two teams of five "tasked with extracting assets from various sites around the map. Once a team has found a site and is in position, they must plant their beacon and protect it from the opposing team while the extraction process occurs." If they can successfully defend the beacon, they get a point, but if the other team overtakes it, they get a point. At that time, a new site pops up and the process starts again. The first team to five is the victor.

Here are the details on the three new maps:
  • Wreckage - “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. 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 - “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. Harvest allows up to 12 players to face off in Capture the Flag, Infinity Slayer, King of the Hill, SWAT and Slayer Pro.”
  • Shatter - “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 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.”
The Extraction Map Pack will launch on Xbox Live December 10th for 800 MS Points.
