Halo 3 Legendary Map Pack Hits April 15

The second downloadable map pack for Bungie's Halo 3 will arrive on April 15, publisher Microsoft and the now-independent developer have announced. At that time, the previously released Heroic Map Pack will, according to Microsoft, become a free download.

Selling for 800 Microsoft Points ($10), the Legendary Map Pack includes three new multiplayer maps. One will be a retooling of the original Halo map Sidewinder titled Avalanche, with the developer issuing several screenshots of the revamped map. nope

Bungie had previously released several screenshots of another map in the pack, Ghost Town. The third map, code-named Moonlight Sonata, remains shrouded in mystery.

"Remember, we just make the maps, we don't get to price them," Bungie community manager Luke Smith wrote on the company's website.
