Halo 4 'War Games Pass' gets you three map packs - details

343 Industries confirms three War Games map packs by April

343 Industries has confirmed details for Halo 4's 'War Games Pass', which will be included in the Limited Edition of the game or sold separately.


The War Games Pass will grant owners access to three War Games map packs that will be released in December, February and April.

The pass, which will retail for $24.99 USD (2,000 MS Points), represents a 15 per cent discount versus purchasing each pack individually, according to 343.

Map Pass owners will also get bonus goodies such as two in-game helmets and a "unique in-game emblem".

343 earlier today released a new gameplay launch trailer
ahead of the official Halo 4 release date of November 6.

Below is the official blurb on each map pack:

Crimson Map Pack (December release timeframe)

Maps: Wreckage, Harvest, Shatter

Description: Witness the chaos of a clash of civilizations in Wreckage, with its blend of claustrophobic spaces and dangerous exposures and venture into the human colony environs of Harvest, and explore a human foray on an alien moon in Shatter.

Majestic Map Pack (February release timeframe)

Maps: Landfall, Monolith, Skyline

Description: Landfall's emphasis is on infantry battles against a glittering ocean on a distant world, while Monolith exposes you to the naked vacuum of space - and the firepower of opposing teams, and Skyline's distinctly industrial feel provides new challenges in somewhat familiar, but occasionally confined spaces.

Castle Map Pack (April release timeframe)

Maps: Daybreak, Outcast, Perdition

Description: Daybreak is set in a military facility against the backdrop of an idyllic mountain range, while Outcast plunges you into the warrens, canyons and arches of an alien edifice, and Perdition takes players into the heart of an urban sprawl, with tactical speed and situational awareness its key features.
