Four new Halo 2 multiplayer maps are now available for download to Xbox Live subscribers.
Two of the maps, Containment and Warlock, are free, while Sanctuary and Turf costs $7.99 for both. All four maps will also be included in an upcoming Halo 2 Multiplayer Map Pack set for release in July, which will have a total of nine maps altogether. The retail package will also contain two new videos: an animated side-story from the single-player story in New Mombasa and a mini-documentary that includes interviews with the map designers, combat strategies and fly-throughs of the new maps.
Set in a Forerunner environment on Delta Halo, Containment is a large, icy outdoor environment suitable for vehicle combat and large team-objective games such as Capture the Flag. Warlock, a small to midsized indoor arena set in ancient Forerunner ruins, offers ample opportunities for a variety of gametypes such as Territories, Slayer, Team Slayer and more.
Located in the streets of Old Mombasa near the wreckage of a downed Covenant Scarab, Turf is a midsize asymmetrical urban combat environment with narrow streets, dark alleyways and heavily defended buildings. The sunlit remains of an ancient Forerunner temple, Sanctuary is a medium-sized symmetrical environment excellent for Capture the Flag, Assault, Territories and Slayer games.
