Today's your lucky day, Halo 3 players, the Mythic map pack is up, live and ready for you to download. The eagerly awaited DLC for Bungie's blockbuster FPS contains three multiplayer maps, Assembly, Orbital and Sandbox. It will cost you only 800 Microsoft points, which is a bargain, certainly.
Here's a little more info on each map:
- Assembly: Named for the Covenant Scarab being constructed overhead, this map is perfect for mid-size Slayer and Team Slayer battles. It also supports objective game-types.
- Orbital: This is the first map in Halo 3 to be set in outer space, specifically an orbital elevator above earth. It has two overlapping "U" shaped corridors and switches that give access to hard-to-reach areas.
- Sandbox: Bungie calls it the ultimate Forge map. It supports every item in the Forge, and even gives you some new toys to play with, including a golf club, golf ball and tin cup, in case you want to hit the links. As for the map itself, it's really a huge empty area split into two maps: A "Sky Bubble" you can use to create maps like Guardian and Ascension, and The Crypt. The Crypt is a fully-enclosed arena for creating games like Grifball.
