View author's profile

Now that the War Games Map Pass for Halo 4 has run its course with three DLC map packs, it turns out 343 isn't quite done supporting the Infinity experience. The Champions Bundle has been officially announced and will include three smaller pieces of DLC for a discounted price.

  • Bullseye Pack: Two new multiplayer maps (Pitfall, a remake of Halo 3's The Pit, and an all-new map called Vertigo), a sports-themed Spartan armor and a new competitive gravball game type called Ricochet.
  • Infinity Armor Pack: Set your Spartan up with impressive and legendary new armor
  • Steel Skin Pack: Bring an elaborate steampunk style to your UNSC, Covenant, and Forerunner weapons.

The Bullseye Pack will be available for 480MSP on its own, while the Infinity Armor Pack and Steel Skin Pack will run 240MSP each by themselves. All of the content will be available collectively August 20th in the Champions Bundle for 800MSP.

Will they actually add 250 more GamerScore and make the game worth 2000?

Nothing about achievements has been announced so far. I don't know how that would work, since they are also selling these pack individually. I wouldn't be surprised if they aren't anymore new achievements.

Seeing as how I bought the Limited Edition, I would hope this is part of the Map Pack Pass that they included.
Probably not, but it doesn't hurt to hope.

If that infinity armour pack contains FOTUS I'm gonna have to shank someone.



(tbh it'll probably function as a compat pack for the armour skins coming with autumn's McFarlane toys)

Really, this isn't apart of the season pass? What a bloody rip off! We support them and they do something stupid like this. They could have included it as a thank you for their first halo game...

Could we make sure this one isn't a throwaway like the last 3 where? The build up was great for content for Halo 3, now, they just throw it away like throwing a bone to a dog (yes, different people, i know, but point still stands). The after support of map packs has been rather awful :/

@26, seems the days of developers doing that for big games are no longer into that, but 2 maps would be a bit much for a freebie.

The thing is, The Pit could be put into matchmaking right now, there will be near exact forged versions already. :/

Dude I completely agree.

After I got all of the achievements for the game I traded it in,I like the campaign a lot,but the gameplay and multiplayer was SOO Call of Duty,with a Halo theme to it,which was fuckin stupid.Call of Halo is what they should just call it now. And honestly The Pit was a very mediocre map in my opinion. I mean I didn't hate it,I thought it was just pretty alright. There are soooooo many other Halo maps that are amazing compared to The Pit. For example look at Halo 2's maps,those were just simply amazing and the best in the series EASILY,of the 23 there was like 3 I didn't like,Halo 1 had pretty sweet maps too,Halo 3's were alright.But Pit being the best? Even if you're just talking about Halo 3 maps? Hello no.I don't see how you people can think the Pit was the best. Each to his own I guess.

Dont know if anybody has asked or answered this already but are the 3 dlcs from the war games packs included in this, like a GOTY edition that includes all the add-ons, or is it just the basic game with this new stuff added?

@37 Oh the champions bundle is just all three new dlcs put together and not a new retail release? That sucks. Maybe they will eventually do that down the line. Sold my copy of halo 4 and never got the war games packs so that would be of interest to me eventually.

In terms of playable content it could have been a lot better. To those saying they are CODifying the series well I can't defend against that statement.

Reading most of the comments it's really sad I can tell most of you haven't played since the huge update which included weapon balancing, the BR is now a lot better (my favourite gun) Definitely play a couple matches, give it a go

well until i get to play the maps i buy i've decided to stop buying halo packs. I love the halo sereis and have owned all halos from 3 and all packs but its so fustrating to pay for a map pack and then never get to play any of them because there is always 1 person who doesnt have the packs.
To date i've payed for and not played 2 packs for halo reach and 1 pack for halo 4 totalling £24

The pit was an awesome map in Halo 3, but they have destroyed the multiplayer with loadouts and all that bs they put in the game now. The multiplayer gameplay now is trash and wont do the map justice.

TBH, Halo 4 is dead. I can only see three ways to resolve this:

1. Add another 'real' DLC 3,4 maps and 250 Gamerscore

2. Spartan Ops Season 2 maybe with Gamerscore

3. increase the level cap to like 300 or something.

I've spent like 6 more days on reach in total and I'm still nowhere near hitting inheritor. halo 4 is too short

Halo 4 MP was pretty poor. The lack of maps didn't help. That was probably the main problem. When you think that console shooters 15 years, with only splitscreen/system link MP had more maps, you realise that it's actually pretty disgraceful. Not saying Halo 4 is the only game guilty of this, though, there are many others. At least they didn't just rip the maps straight out of SP.
The armour packs reminded me about the preorder skins; I'm glad now that I didn't pay any extra for one of those!
Might just get the maps but I haven't bought any of the previous map packs for H4 so far. I'll probably buy if they have some easy achievements.

Well, According to OXM, This isn't part of the Map Pack Pass, So I guess I won't be getting this one, Which means I'm leaving my Halo 4 at it's current state, and probably won't touch it again unless I feel like showing someone how much content they gave away that was supposed to be exclusive.

I went to to look at my career and I saw that I have 373/423 achievements. I have all the achievements for every Halo game so I investigated in Halo Waypoint on the console. Turns out there are 10 achievements for the Champions Bundle pack and 40 for Spartan Assault which I believe is a glitch because there are duplicates.
