Just uploaded by Waypoint,


Which one is your favorite so far? I love the look of that military base one. I'd like to see at least a semi forgeable space in any of these though.

I figured that 'April 1st' release date was false.

Anyways, Daybreak still looks the best. However, they're all large maps. So screw Halo!

I was really excited for Outcast, I though it would be very similar to the Infinity map from Halo PC because of the valley and ridge description I heard. But the way it's depicted in this makes it seem like one of those maps from the first half of Spartan Ops.

And for those who didn't see the news article on the front page:

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 teamís 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 runnerís 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 Ė an ideal revenge weapon against a pesky sniper or a big surprise for an enemy Warthog.
I guess I'll be mainstream for once and say Daybreak is the map I'm looking forward to the most.

And there'll be 9 more achievements for a total of 250g. Wonder if there will be more DLC to bump the total amount of gamerscore to 2000. Gears did it, why can't Halo?

Spoiler! (click here to reveal)

Eh, nothing special. The majestic maps look much better and these look generic. Oh well, at least the pain is almost over.

Pretty excited about these maps since I won't need to play Halo 4 again after that.

Daybreak, that's what's up my man. I think Halo will stop at 1750. The only way I can see it going to 2000 is if they have a Season 2 of SpOps in November or in 2014 if they make a Halo 2 Anniversary, there will be a tacked on 250 to Halo 4. But that'll probably not happen since a Halo 2 Anniversary in 2014 would be for the NeXbox.

As sad as it is to admit (because I love Halo...or at least used to?) once these achievements are done, I'm never going back to it lololol.

So there are 9 more achievements worth 250.

Sadly, I think they will be similar to the Majestic ones. Not a bad thing necessarily, but I hope they are "longevity" type achievements (play X amount of matches, get x amount of kills). If only we could swap in-game challenges with achievements.

That said, I'm excited for these. Going to make a video on some interesting stuff I've noticed with the new trailer.

I doubt it. They'll probably be more like Crimson since these maps are larger like Shatter and Wreckage.

Mantis and Wraiths in Outcast, probably Man-Cannons in all of them. I foresee many stupid achievements tied with this Map Pack.

I thought the same thing. I haven't picked up Halo since day 1 of Majestic (even though Action Sack has intrigue me to almost come back.) I will say at least Reach had almost consistent multiplayer experiences. This game I can either go under or do extremely well.

Same, I haven't touched Halo since the 25th and I could care less. I played a hella lot of Reach but Halo 3 was my favorite. Oh well, 'til April 8th.

I'm feeling burned out from Halo 4 so it will be nice to be done with this game and catch a break before Halo 5 or whatever else comes next. The thing I liked about Majestic was that the maps stood out but with Castle these maps look incredibly boring.

Dudes, if you don't care about the soooo shitty Halo 4, why do I have to read your retarded posts every single fuckin day? Play Halo 3, have some fun. That's all it should be about.


-> I like the new maps, and I love big maps. And Halo 4. Srsly.

Opinionated posts are now retarded posts? Oh...okay. Because that makes sense. Lol, and you like Halo 4? Surely you've never played Halo 2 or 3. And if you have than I don't know wtf you're talking about.

Agreed, these maps are too large. However, sell your copy!? Damn, I would NEVER, not even if someone paid $100 for it!
