Halo: Reach "Defiant Map Pack" Video And Screenshots Of Three Multiplayer Maps


Posted February 14, 2011 - By Nikole Zivalich

Halo: Reach DLC "Defiant Map Pack" has officially been confirmed by Microsoft. Just because the Covenant has won the battle for Reach doesn't mean we've lost the war. (SPOILER: We don't win until Halo 3 so bare with me.) Humanity's fight continues with three new multiplayer environments: one set in a giant orbital space station, one hidden away in a forest and another at a civilian mining site. Last week we saw rumors about the Defiant Pack being leaked by Halo fansites but now we can confirm the pack will include three new maps Condemned, Highlands and Unearthed.

Condemned is located on the Orbital Station Gamma, a space station in Reach's orbit. During the Battle for Reach the station sustained damage at the hands, and claws, of the Covenant. Condemned will be playable for 6-12 players for a "variety" of games including Team Slayer, Team Objective and Free for All.

Highlands is located in a secret Military Wilderness Training Preserve in one of Reach's forests. Before the war began Spartan super-soldiers trained in the wooded areas. The large map is perfect for 8-16 players in Big Team Battle, Team Slayer and Team Objective games.

Unearthed takes place on a Titanium mine and refinery in Viery. The mine was abandoned once the Battle for Reach began, but due to tactical and economic gain both humans and the Covenant have plenty to gain from having access to it. Up to four players can use this map in Firefight.

 Halo: Reach

Microsoft has confirmed the new DLC, with the help of Certain Affinity, will be available for download from Xbox Live this March. It will cost 800 MS points. 150 new achievement points have also been added. And yes I care about achievements; scandalous I'm sure. 

Are you looking forward to the Halo: Reach Defiant Map Pack DLC?
