Halo 3 Legendary Pack Confirmed For April 15th

In their latest press release Microsoft comment that 7.3 million copies of Halo 3 have been grabbed from shelves since its release last year. They then go onto say that this totals up to over 500 million hours of online action. This is great and all, but if like us you don’t really care about sales and are instead interested it some fragging good action you’ll be happy to hear they also confirmed April 15 will be the day the next wave of Halo 3 DLC will go live, with the Legendary Map Pack been available on the Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points. The pack will boast three new maps – Ghost Town, Avalanche, and one map yet to be revealed.

Ghost Town is labled as “a battle-scarred maze of narrow passages and dangerous ruins outside the once-prosperous city of Voi. Collapsed ceilings and shell-battered buildings provide both valuable cover and deadly traps, as catwalks and stairways take the fight from claustrophobic ground combat to dizzying rooftop battles. Ghost Town is a mid-sized map ideal for Team Slayer games and smaller, objective types.

Then the second map, Avalanche, is labelled as a tribute to Sidewinder, from Halo: Combat Evolved. Bungie comment “This massive, vehicle-oriented objective map adds a twist to its classic predecessor with all new interiors, dramatically reshaped exteriors and brand new vehicle variants. Take a ride and admire the visual variety from the cockpit of the retuned Hornet.

As we said eariler, the third map is still unknown, but fans are asked to stay tuned to Bungie.net to get the details when announced. We’ll report on it too if you want to stay here though! The map is promised to be yet another reimagaining of a classic, although one for fans of smaller Slayer maps.
