Halo 4 Map Pass adds nine DLC multiplayer maps

As expected for a tripe-A multiplayer game like Halo 4, there will be a DLC season pass available. Developer 343 Industries had revealed that the War Games Map Pass would be available for sale when the game launched November 6, but we finally find out what maps the DLC will include.

The pass, which will cost $24.99 (2000 Microsoft Points) covers three packs, each containing three maps:

Crimson Map Pack - December

Majestic Map Pack - February

Castle Map Pack - April

The pass also includes two new in-game helmets and a new Falcon emblem. If you have ordered the Limited Edition, the map pass will be included.

To go with the announcement, Microsoft has released the gameplay launch trailer, a nice reprieve from the live-action Forward Unto Dawn series and the David Fincher-produced "Scanned" commercial.
