Halo 4 Castle Map Pack Brings New Multiplayer Experiences


343 Industries have literally just announced the third major expansion in the Halo Multiplayer experience, the Castle Map Pack, and they are saying that it will be getting launched on Monday 8th April. Developed by Certain Affinity, in collaboration with 343 Industries, the Castle Map Pack brings players three stunning, medium-to-large maps that emphasise vehicular warfare and large battles over open spaces, where team strategy is key to successfully conquering the battlefield. For full details surrounding the new map pack, and a teaser trailer too, read the full press release below.

“Daybreak” places you amidst military facilities, against the backdrop of an idyllic mountain range, while “Outcast” plunges you into the natural tunnels and arches of a secluded rebel outpost. “Perdition” takes players into the heart of an urban battleground, where tactical speed and situational awareness are essential to achieving victory.  The Castle Map pack provides nine new Achievements worth a total of 250 Gamerscore.

To offer a glimpse of the new maps, 343 Industries released a trailer for the Castle Map Pack today, available now on Halo Waypoint. Full descriptions of the new maps and modes are below:

New Battlegrounds: Castle Map Pack

·         Daybreak: Two UNSC bases oppose each other in this large asymmetrical map. Teams must split focus between attacking the enemy base while playing close defense to their own. Claim your team’s sniper rifle to cover the central Man Cannon, or grab a Warthog to push through the side channels and flank the enemy base. The Rocket Launcher and Banshee both spawn in positions diagonal to the starting bases; claiming their firepower early is crucial to land the first flag cap or take an early lead in kills.

·         Outcast: Controlling vehicle paths is critical in this circular map set in a desert environment. Outcast features frequent Mantis vs. Wraith battles, so teams must keep their drivers informed with constant communication to get the drop on enemy vehicles. While driving the Mantis, you can target fusion coils in tunnels to flush out camping opponents directly into your rain of fire, or cover your flag runner’s dash to a friendly Warthog. If you find yourself without a vehicle, race to the secondary bases to secure a power weapon or drop on enemies for a game-changing hijack.

·         Perdition: Blending long sightlines, vehicles, and close-quarters combat, Perdition caters to nearly any gameplay style. Wheelmen and gunners will be right at home in this urban environment as a well-placed Warthog can lock down a quarter of the map, securing valuable ordnances for the team. Learning the interior routes is essential to both escaping danger and finishing off ranged kills. Be sure to look for the Gravity Hammer in Power Station 3 – an ideal revenge weapon against a pesky sniper or a big surprise for an enemy Warthog.

New Playlist: “Castle DLC”
The Castle Map Pack brings a new playlist to the War Games experience called “Castle DLC,” a six versus six playlist that focuses on both team play and co-ordinated objective gameplay.

The Castle Map Pack will be available on Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft Points. Players who have purchased the “Halo 4” War Games Map Pass* or “Halo 4” Limited Edition game will receive access to all three Map Packs (Crimson, Majestic, and Castle) at a 15 percent savings versus purchasing them individually.1  The new maps will also be integrated into existing Infinity Slayer, Big Team Objective, and Dominion playlists. DLC maps will appear in a playlist if all members of the match have the content purchased or the War Games Map Pass.

“Halo 4” is the latest blockbuster installment of the iconic franchise that has shaped entertainment history and defined a generation of gamers. Developed by 343 Industries, “Halo 4” continues the story of the series’ iconic hero the Master Chief as he returns to confront his destiny and face an ancient evil that threatens the fate of the entire universe. “Halo 4” takes the series in a bold new direction by delivering its most epic and explorative campaign yet, alongside an emotionally resonant story and a groundbreaking multiplayer offering unlike anything before it – setting the stage for an epic new sci-fi saga. The standard edition of “Halo 4” is available for £49.99 ERP**
