343 has announced the Map packs for Halo 4, given us some concept art and general release times for the map. Check out the original Article by Major Nelson here.
These maps look like a lot of fun, and I hope I get to use all of them lots. Having purchased all the map packs for Halo Reach a year ago, there are some maps I have only played a couple games on.
All of these maps are available with a Halo 4 Map pass, which is included in the Limited Edition.). If you didn’t get the LE, you can purchase a Map Pass, which will give you all the maps for less money than buying each Pack individually. The map pass also comes with two in game helmets and an in game emblem.
Crimson Map Pack (December release timeframe)
Maps: Wreckage, Harvest, Shatter
Description: Witness the chaos of a clash of civilizations in Wreckage, with its blend of claustrophobic spaces and dangerous exposures and venture into the human colony environs of Harvest, and explore a human foray on an alien moon in Shatter.
Majestic Map Pack (February release timeframe)
Maps: Landfall, Monolith, Skyline
Description: Landfall’s emphasis is on infantry battles against a glittering ocean on a distant world, while Monolith exposes you to the naked vacuum of space – and the firepower of opposing teams, and Skyline’s distinctly industrial feel provides new challenges in somewhat familiar, but occasionally confined spaces.
Castle Map Pack (April release timeframe)
Maps: Daybreak, Outcast, Perdition
Description: Daybreak is set in a military facility against the backdrop of an idyllic mountain range, while Outcast plunges you into the warrens, canyons and arches of an alien edifice, and Perdition takes players into the heart of an urban sprawl, with tactical speed and situational awareness its key features.
