Online versus?

I think I heard Rod saying in a Q and A that the new maps werent available for online versus, and that they were intended for horde.

Can anyone confirm this?

Is it true that you can find theese map in, let's say, an online KOTH versus?

They will be available for matchmaking November 24th. They are currently only available for Private use. Although you may run across them in Horde or Beast since those do not use the dedicated servers.

The 3 new maps in the Horde Command Pack are NOT available on the DEDICATED servers for VERSUS. You can host private matches online with friends, but you won't find them in Quick Match or Ranked Matches. The 3 new maps are only currently available in online matchmaking for Horde and Beast modes.

On a side note, these 3 maps WILL be available for Quick Match and Ranked Match when the new Booster Pack is made available on Thanksgiving day.

Hope that clarifies.
Looking to boost:

And public versus if you end up in a P2P game. I played some Quick Match Can You Dig It on Azura. I really liked the layout of that map for some reason desided to buy the Season pass today instead of waiting till December before RAAM's Shadow like I had planned just so I could play on the maps sooner.

clocktower is as good as it was before, im surprise to see there is not that much lancer abusing from the top, thats cool, people rush the boom and it gives close quarter battle.

Bullet Marsh is suprisingly fun, it was one of the "not so liked" in GOW1, but the little things they added really make it better.

Azura and Rustland im still waiting to see more of them, so far so good overall...

Blood Drive is exactly what i feared it would be... i mean i already didn't like much the map in GOW2, not because it was THAT bad, actually it was a decent map, but like because people continually voted for it ALL THE TIME wich really gave me an overdose. And worst was in Guardian, too much nade tagging... that was annoying.

But to go back to GOW3... as soon as you get a full team online against another full team, its a game of cat and mouse... lancer lancer lancer... first kill most of the time gives victory to the team that just camp and wait for the timer... at least there is no stalemates like GOW2... but damn its boring... i have no fun to do that....

Im a little confused. If i want to play the 3 Horde maps that have been reworked from GoW2, do i get them with the Booster Pack that recently was released for free, or do I still need the Horde Command Pack for those?
