Halo 4 Castle Map Pack Now Available
Written By
View author's profile

Halo 4's third map pack - the Castle Map Pack - is now available to download from the Xbox Live Marketplace, which means War Games Map Pass holders can snap it up immediately without a second thought, while non-season pass people can pay 800 Microsoft Points for it.

This new map pack adds three new multiplayer maps to fight across, including the mountain range-set military facility in Daybreak, the warrens, canyons and alien arches of Outcast (trailered below), and the urban sprawl of Perdition. Each map presents its own fresh tactics and new spaces to master.

Halo 4's Castle Map Pack is out now for 800 MSP. You can add it to your download queue here, and watch the latest trailer below.

I really want a season 2 of Spartan Ops! If they can just use new maps instead of re-using MP maps and SP sections, I would be willing to pay up to 800 for another 10 chapters.

I will download this now, I completely forgot about this. I haven't played H4 since a few days after the last map pack got released. I've been losing interest in FPS games lately.

I would also definitely be willing to pay up to $15 for a second full Season of Spartan Ops. But 343 has already confirmed that they don't plan on making one.

@2 I wont reveal any spoilers here but with how spartan ops ended, maybe they'll continue it into Halo 5?

@7, Multiple Forums and Blogs on Halo Waypoint and mentioned it last night in a Live Stream of Castle Map Pack - how they had no more DLC planned or created for Halo 4, Castle was the last of it.

@10 That's a shame. Did they specifically mention no more Spartan Ops? If not there is hope that they just meant no more MP DLC and a Season 2 could still happen. A guy can dream, right?

@10 That might be true but... How do you explain that Jenifer Hale (Sarah Palmers voice actress) said that one of the games she is working on atm is Halo 4.

@11, Yupp :( One of the comments asked about more Spartan Ops specifically, and they replied that they don't have any "plans" for a Season 2 nor future Map Packs. But hey, I'm with you. Hopefully they're covering up and plan to release something new in the summer or fall!

@13 AH, wording is everything!!! They have "no plans", which means they haven't thought about making another one, but haven't yet written it off either! :-D

@15 I call B.S., If they had no plans, why would they have even called it ”season 1” , if they had no plans, they would have just called it ”Spartan ops” also major Nelson was quoted saying season 1 will be free, implying season 2 will cost M$ spacebucks.

@16 Season 1 was an experiment for them, and if it went right, then Season 2 would release. It didn't go right.

@16, I see the logic in that but still, it's pure speculation at this point. I won't believe it until they confirm it :p

First map pack was pretty good, but sadly the small maps in the second don't work so well for the way Halo 4 plays out (so many ways to get across the map so quickly). Small maps worked in earlier Halo games because you didn't have ways to sprint and fly across the maps. I find that in Halo 4 medium-sized maps work best.

I wonder if there's more plan for DLC in the future. I seriously hope there's more than just maps. :( Spartan Ops Seasons II?

I kind of wanted a nostalgia map pack. I'd love to play some of the CE and Halo 2 in Halo 4. Valhalla is no Blood Gulch.

My biggest regret this year in gaming is this game in all honesty Halo 4 was terrible and the map packs only make the game worse because I have to go re-complete it again. I even bought the special edition it was definitely not worth it.
