Halo: Reach 'Noble Map Pack' Coming Nov. 30

Bungie has revealed details on the first downloadable content headed to Halo: Reach, which will add three new maps to the game's competitive multiplayer modes.

The "Noble Map Pack" is set to be available on the Xbox Live Marketplace on November 30, at an asking price of 800MS Points ($10). The content will also add an additional 250 achievement points to Halo: Reach, which explains a lot.


Noble's three new environments are "Anchor 9," a 2-8 player map that takes place on a UNSC space station dry-dock; "Tempest," an 8-16 player abandoned shoreline facility area with Forerunner technology lining its two symmetrical bases; and "Breakpoint," a series of modular archaeological labs, atop an icy precipice for 8-16 players.

Bungie has also kicked off a map creation contest for its community, dubbed the "Forgetacular Map Design Contest." Details for the competition can be found on a dedicated blog post featured at Bungie.net.
