Halo 2 Fans Prepare For New Maps

Microsoft Game Studios and Bungie Studios today confirmed the upcoming release of two new, eagerly awaited downloadable maps for Halo® 2. The maps will be available as premium downloadable content for Xbox® and Xbox 360™ on April 17. Fans of the original Halo have long requested the addition of some of their favorite maps to the critically acclaimed multiplayer experience of Halo 2. These re-creations, developed by Bungie and Certain Affinity Inc., are a perfect way to thank fans for their support as they surpass 800 million hours of Halo 2 gaming on Xbox Live®. The two maps bring new life to ancient battlefields and legendary skirmishes, as both are new, improved and redesigned remakes of fan favorites from the original Halo®: Combat Evolved. For the price of $4 for the pair, these maps bring a fresh burst of action to the seminal Halo 2 online multiplayer experience. Both of the maps will be available through the Halo 2 in-game content downloader for both Xbox and Xbox 360.* Tombstone The king of Halo maps has returned at last. Hang ’Em High, arguably the most popular multiplayer map for the original title, has been reimagined for Halo 2 as Tombstone, with all-new graphics, features and a few hidden surprises. Enjoy the dangerous catwalks and trenches that made this the most requested Halo multiplayer map ever, with a modernized Halo 2 flavor. Desolation The second map, Desolation, is a symmetrical, Deathmatch-oriented map and a beautiful remake of the original Derelict. With new graphics and effects and a massive gameplay overhaul, the old favorite is now faster-paced and more balanced than ever—perfect for intense Halo 2 combat.
