Microsoft Preparing 'Defiant Map Pack' for Halo Reach, Due in March

By Steve Watts, Feb 14, 2011 7:00am PST Microsoft sent word today that Halo Reach will be receiving more maps in March. The "Defiant Map Pack" brings three new multiplayer maps -- Condemned, Highlands, and Unearthed -- that cover a variety of game types. An exact date wasn't mentioned in the press release, but the set will cost $10 (800 MSP).

Condemned takes place on a conquered orbital station, and supports 6-12 players in Team Slayer, Team Objective, and Free for All modes. Highlands is a larger-scale map set in a forest training area, providing for 8-16 player Big Team Battle, Team Slayer, and Team Objective game types. Finally, Unearthed takes place in an underground Titanium mine, and lets 4 players group up for Firefight and its assorted modes.

The trio of maps were created in conjunction with Texas-based developer Certain Affinity, which also lent a hand in Halo Waypoint and the "First Strike" map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops. Check out the new trailer (above) and screens after the break.
