Halo 4 is out on November 6th worldwide. This much we know.
Details have recently been revealed surrounding the multiplayer of Halo 4, however, related to a ‘Season Pass’ that, if purchased, will net you access to future downloadable content at 15 percent off the regular price.
Available from launch for 2000 MS Points (or $24.99 if you need that processed), and also included in the Limited Edition version of Halo 4, the War Games Map Pass will open up access to three map packs as they’re released in December 2012, February 2013 and April 2013, and “represents a savings of more than 15 percent versus purchasing the packs individually,” says Microsoft.
Those who purchase the pass will also receive two bonus in-game helmets, as well as a special in-game emblem
Here are descriptions of those map packs and their content:
Crimson Map Pack (December release timeframe)
Maps: Wreckage, Harvest, Shatter
“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
“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
“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.”
“Also included in the Halo 4 War Games Map Pass are two unique in-game helmets (‘Scanner’ and ‘Strider’) that feature new geometry, and an exclusive in-game emblem (‘Falcon’).”
The question is, will you be indulging in this War Games content with the Season Pass? Have you already got the Limited Edition version of Halo 4?
