Halo 4 Crimson Map Pack Out On December 10th For 800 MSP
The first piece of DLC for Halo 4, the Crimson Map Pack, will be available on December 10th for 800 MSP ($10), or free if you purchased the War Games Map Pass. This pack will include 3 brand new maps: Wreckage, Harvest, and Shatter.
It will also bring along 8 new achievements worth 250 Gamerscore and a brand new game type called Extraction. This will be exclusive to the Crimson Map Pack and here’s the official description:
Extraction is a 5 vs. 5 objective-based game type where opposing Spartan teams are tasked with extracting assets from various sites around the map. Once a team has found a site and is in position, they must plant their beacon and protect it from the opposing team while the extraction process occurs. If the defending team remains in control of the beacon, they receive one point, however if the opposing team overtakes the site before extraction is complete, the point goes to them. Once a site has been extracted, a new site becomes available. The first team to extract five points wins.
More Halo 4 map packs will be out in February and April, so stay tuned for details.
