Halo Waypoint have just released new screenshots and a Behind the Scenes video of the upcoming Majestic map pack, which includes Landfall, Monolith and Skyline, two small and one medium sized maps. Pushing fun, close quarters combat, the Majestic map pack may be the answer to the current map rotation in War Games and get players back on Halo 4 multiplayer
Developed in collaboration with Certain Affinity, the Majestic map pack “delivers the close-quarters action you have been craving, in three all new class to medium sized maps” and are designed specifically for tight, competitive combat in teamed and FFA modes.
The world of Tribute is now a graveyard, but its capital was once a bright beacon of commerce among the inner colonies. Fight in the corridors and courtyards of Casbah’s port authority buildings, but don’t stand still too long. Perfect for Infinity Slayer, this small to midsize asymmetrical map offers interiors with sparse cover, which encourages close-range combat, while the exteriors offer long lines of sight to stalk your opponents. Awesome jump routes let players spring around the outside of the map, incidentally offering a perfect view of the city as it is razed by the Covenant’s brutal assault.
This monument and many like it were built by the Forerunners after their final victory over the ancient humans. This small map has central man-cannons, short corridors, almost no cover, and open sightlines which make the location great for a mixture of close and mid-range battle. Monolith harkens back to more classic “Halo” arena-based maps, and its symmetry lends nicely to objective-based modes like Capture the Flag. Monolith is an open battlefield; wherever you look, you will witness the ferocious action that only a small and open map can provide.
The rooftop terrain on this new space tether construction site is an ideal training environment for close-quarters infantry combat. This map, perched high above the sights of reconstruction in Cascade’s capital city, is small and symmetrical, perfect for Regicide with a mixture of high and low spaces and plenty of cover. Don’t think cover means you’re safe, however – this map holds explosive fuel cells that can and will wreak havoc in Skyline’s confined spaces, not to mention the long, long drop if you misstep.
Additionally, the map pack will introduce two new Majestic DLC playlists and a new FFA game type, Infinity Rumble, that is exclusive to the Majestic DLC playlist, as well as 10 new Achievements worth 250 Gamerscore.
Players who own the War Games Season Pass from buying it for 2000 Microsoft Points or from the Halo 4 Limited Edition, will receive the Crimson and Majestic map packs as well as the final map pack when it releases in April at a 15% savings versus purchasing them individually from the Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points ($10 AUD)
