Yep, E3 brings you…packshots. And a fact sheet. And an announcement trailer.
Microsoft has revealed a spectacular line-up of games which included the world première of Halo 4. Yes, you read that correctly.
The new map pack for Halo: Reach is out now for the price of 800MS Points on Xbox LIVE.
The Defiant Map Pack introduces a total of three new battlefields – Condemned and Highlands – for competitive multiplayer and Unearthed – a brand new Firefight level.
We were fortunate enough to receive preview codes for the maps, but have decided against a full review of the DLC – mainly because we see no sense in commenting on maps that could not be fully enjoyed with one other person running around.
I’ll jump right in with the most important (I’m a fan, OK?) of the recent announcements at Microsoft’s San Francisco press event (invite still in the post chaps?…).
The Gears of War 3 public multiplayer kicks off mid-April giving players the chance to try out three new multiplayer modes on four new maps. You can also help even decide which maps you would like to see in the beta by visiting the Gears of War Facebook page and voting on your favorites. Voting has started and ends on February 28. I can see a lot of SA gamers outside their local retailer this morning (or awaiting their courier) for their copies of Bulletstorm…
Other news includes the date of Halo: Reach’s Defiant Map Pack, Fable III DLC and other (maybe) slightly less exciting stuff.
Following the leaked images for what was claimed to be the new Halo: Reach Map pack, Major Nelson has now made it official by introducing the maps of the Map Pack. The next Halo: Reach Map Pack is called ‘Defiant’ and will have three new maps and cost you 800MS Points. It will be available in March on Xbox LIVE and will add new Achievements for another 150 Gamerscore .
