Halo Anniversary gets Headlong remake and more
If you spent any considerable amount of time with Halo 2, then youve likely stomped around the Headlong map in your billion-dollar boots, helping to fertilize its soil with a few dead bodies. A new and improved version of that large-scale map, dubbed Breakneck, will ship with Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary, 343 Industries announced today.
Some graphical tweaks have been made, but you may notice some layout differences as well. That teleporter on the Blue bases balcony has been replaced with a man-cannon and some panels have been added up there for better cover when moving from building to building. Red sides had an extension added to the Engineering Hallway and lost a chunk of the ceiling in the Office.
343 also sent word on the next big title update for Halo: Reach, due on September 21. Initially, the title update wont change anything for you, but come October 4 a special beta playlist will become active with 4-on-4 Objective and Slayer game modes. Here is where 343 will monitor games so that it can continue to shape Reach.
Feel free to hop into our gallery below to check out shots of the new and improved Breakneck. Youll get a chance to see it in person when Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary launches on November 15.
