  Halo 2 Multiplayer Maps Revealed - Official

Microsoft Game Studios and Bungie Studios today confirmed the upcoming release of two new, eagerly awaited downloadable maps for “Halo® 2.” The maps will be available as premium downloadable content for Xbox® and Xbox 360™ on April 17.
Fans of the original “Halo” have long requested the addition of some of their favorite maps to the critically acclaimed multiplayer experience of “Halo 2.” These re-creations, developed by Bungie and Certain Affinity Inc., are a perfect way to thank fans for their support as they surpass 800 million hours of “Halo 2” gaming on Xbox LIVE®.

The two maps will bring new life to ancient battlefields and legendary skirmishes, as both are new, improved and redesigned remakes of fan favorites from the original “Halo: Combat Evolved.” For the price of $4 for the pair, these maps bring a fresh burst of action to the seminal “Halo 2” online multiplayer experience. Both of the maps will be available through the “Halo 2” in-game content downloader for both Xbox and Xbox 360.*

The king of “Halo” maps has returned at last. Hang ’Em High, arguably the most popular multiplayer map for the original title, has been reimagined for “Halo 2” as Tombstone, with all-new graphics, features and a few hidden surprises. Now fans will enjoy the dangerous catwalks and trenches that made this the most requested “Halo” multiplayer map ever, with a modernized “Halo 2” flavor.

The second map, Desolation, is a symmetrical, Deathmatch-oriented map and a beautiful remake of the original Derelict. With new graphics and effects and a massive gameplay overhaul, the old favorite is now faster-paced and more balanced than ever — perfect for intense “Halo 2” combat.

It's an original Xbox download, so there's no way to use MS points - and you WILL need an Xbox Live Gold account to download and play, since the original Xbox (even in BC mode) can't tell the difference between gold and silver. But you CAN use these on 360, just so we're clear. You just need to use a credit card for the purchase, instead of marketplace points. We'll have LOTS more info in the update later today.......

^_^ Cool stuff eh? Can't wait to get ahold of these two new map stick out tongue

Hmm, I almost didn't recongnise Derelict. Although Tombstone looks like it would be a great match (like it's predicessor).

@#5: Most likely, probably with a few more PC exclusive maps as well.

i hope they release a disc with the maps soon after, just like they did with the last map pack. i have 1 modded xbox, 2 regular, and a 360. that is like 16 dollars in maps for all of them. especially if it comes with bonus features.

Holy ****. that is riduculous stuff! The enviroments are so good!!!!! If this is Halo 2 with a half-crew (it was like a side-project not even done by Bungie, but like a sidegroup, I think), just imagine Halo 3 full fledged maps!!! Damn, I so wanna play Tombstone right now, it just looks insane!! I need to calm myself!!! Beer! Beer!

TY Bungie!

Sounds like they're trying to appease Halo Fans rather than thank them, otherwise it'd be free. Nonetheless I do like the fact that we now have more maps to play. However, thanking them, not likely.

I'm willing to bet that they're throwing in Sidewinder and Timberland as well for H2V.
It will be nice to have some more maps to play, so there is something to look forward to. Oh, wait! I can download these now! Yes! (Warms up Xbox)
