New Maps Inbound to Halo Wars

In addition to its upcoming DLC, new battlefields will also soon grace Ensemble's RTS Halo Wars. nope Joystiq noticed that the names of three upcoming maps--Barrens (1v1), Blood River (1v1) and Memorial Basin (2v2)--are mentioned in the title's in-game news crawl.

It is unknown whether the maps will be part of the already-announced Strategic Options DLC. Shacknews contacted Microsoft for more information.
