Halo 3 and its Ghost Town

Halo 3 and its Ghost Town

Bungie has just posted some screenshots from one of the map included in the Legendary Map Pack for Halo 3 to be released this spring. It's name is Ghost Town (codename O.K. Corral). The environment, a cross between a lost factory and jungle, seems to have plenty of hiding places for campers. Please note that the first map pack has been launched December 11, 2007 for 800 Microsoft Points.

is this free?
Commented on 2008-02-22 05:22:38
No, it will be like the last map pack. 3 maps for 800 points.

$8 for a map pack seems pricey to me. Anyway, looks like an interesting level.

i'd buy this if it was called "cod 4 map pack" lol. i stopped playing halo about 3 weeks after it released and cod came out. does look ok tho. now they need another 10 to replace the crap ones that came with the game.

damn. i think it would be worth it was all the maps put together, 8 dollars for 3 maps is a bit much

800 points is $10. And yes, of course it's overpriced. Just like the first map pack.

I wonder what IW is going to do about pricing...

The old maps will be free when these new ones come out

And look at the end of the day don,t buy the maps if you think it costs to much just wait... the last 2.5 maps where brill for 800pts

Commented on 2008-02-22 09:54:11
Looks great, but will wait till they free :D

I played Halo 3 once single player and once multiplayer.

Thank you that was enough

The screenshots look good though (as always)
Commented on 2008-02-22 11:14:43
ah i just bought the lastest map yesterday, damn its tough. I guess this one will not be free either.
Commented on 2008-02-22 11:21:03
The last map is supposed to go free when this one goes up. Looking forward to getting the last one for free.
Commented on 2008-02-22 14:28:49
Wow that level looks awesome!...I'll get them when they are free =} bungie charges WAY too much for they're maps...
Commented on 2008-02-22 14:50:41
I think it's not the last MP.

Bungie announced a map during the release of the Heroic Map pach which wont be in this new one. So, there will be a third pack for sure.

And btw, the prices are not from Bungie or any other developer, guys >_> Microsoft decides how much you must pay for content available on the marketplace.
Commented on 2008-02-22 14:58:00
Still waiting for Heroic Map Pack to become free. Will probably wait another few months for this to become free.

Looks really good though.

I still play Halo regularly (2-3 times a week that is) but as the last mappack I won't buy this. First they have to prove to me that they can put out amazing maps like they did with Halo 1/2, then MAYBE I'll buy that overpriced mappack.
Commented on 2008-02-22 16:42:24
I wish they would make maps that are outside the Halo universe and just for fun
Commented on 2008-02-22 17:13:06
does anybody confirm that the heroic maps will actually become free or is that just somebody guessing/

Where do you get that from? As far as I can tell, it's completely up to the developers/publishers how much they charge for the content. Just look at games like Oblivion, we know for a fact those prices were set by Bethesda, they even reduced it after the horse armour fiasco. And games like Test Drive still regularly give away free cars or even car packs.

But yeah, as much as I love Halo these packs are a little too expensive. How about some more single player content? Or at least some new armour sets to go with it?

Yeah you nailed it. Microsoft does set the pricing for MGS games though, that's for certain.

but on the flip side, epic wanted to give away everything for free in gears of war yet it was MICROSOFT who made them charge for it.
