...This is not Halo 4, this is the PREQUEL to the original Halo for the xbox. I know plenty of people who bitch about how its nothing like Halo 3. ITS NOT SUPPOSED TO. It explains what happens before the trilogy. Get your facts straight before you go whining about crap like this.

Another thing, Mythics Maps are included. Anyone who doesn't buy this game is missing out on the rest of Halo 3 achievements.

You realize this is an RTS and not a FPS, right? Of course it won't be like Halo 3.

So if anybody buys halo wars they get the maps? I thought it was only for the collectors edition. Also, if it is only for the collectors edition, is there a code that comes with it that you enter into the XBL marketplace, or does it just simply come with the game?

These three mythic maps will then be released on March 3rd to the general Xbox Live public on the Marketplace, meaning that it's only an advantage to get them 'early' in Europe & Asia I believe. I'm almost certain they'll be 800 MS Points and the rest of the Mythic Maps come with Halo: ODST in Fall later in the year.

The thread starter is confused.

He probably meant to post this in the Halo 3: ODST section.

Mythic Maps are included with Halo 3:ODST.

3 Mythic Maps are included with Halo Wars Limited Edition. They will not come with the normal $60 Halo Wars.

I believe there is a code.

Sorry for the double post.

This may sound confusing, but I'll do my best to explain it.

I believe ODST will come with all 6 maps in the game, meaning no code.

In addition, I think it will have a code for the remaining 3 maps so you can play them on Halo 3.

Oh well, I guess I'll to buy the the maps then. :(

I download my games, so if I download Halo Wars Legendary edition, it won't come with the maps? I was hoping they'd just come. Oh well I'll wait for ODST to get my mythic maps achievements.

I hope they come with ODST. :)

If im correct its only Limited Edition that has the code to the 3 Halo 3 Maps.

Halo ODST will have all maps on the disc.

Umm... two things about this statement;

1) Mythic Maps are NOT included in the regular Halo Wars. Only the Limited Edition. Naturally.

2) Having the Mythic Maps will NOT net you the rest of the achievements. Apparently, you'll have to wait until Halo 3: ODST to get the other skulls (The last 3 Halo 3 Maps will come with ODST), so that means you'll have to wait until Fall 2009 to get the full 1750 achievements points from Halo 3.

I hope this clears things up. :D

As an addendum, the 3 maps you get with the LE will also be available on the marketplace at an as-yet undisclosed time (probably about a month after Halo Wars comes out, give or take).

Bleh, all these added maps/DLC and achievements being unattainable in HALO 3 until other games are released is confusing :(

As a clarifier, Halo 3: ODST will include ALL the DLC maps (heroic map pack up through the new ones).

Wait, so which can you download first, the ones that come with the LCE or the ones that everyone can download for 800 msp? And you say LCE comes on March 3rd or did you say the 800 msp download comes March 3rd?

So we can't get any of these new achievements till ODST comes out? If so that sucks.

OK, this is the post to answer all questions regarding Halo 3 DLC maps.

Halo Wars will ship with a code to download 3 maps (Orbital, Assembly, and Sandbox). These three maps will also be available in a map pack on XBLM at some point in time AFTER Halo Wars is released, likely a week to a month. The other three maps will not be available until Halo 3: ODST comes out in the fall. Halo 3: ODST will come with ALL the DLC content previously as well, so if you didn't have the other map packs you will get them with that.
