Halo series developer Bungie has revealed a screenshot of the third map that will be included in the Halo 3 Mythic Map Pack, with Microsoft filling in some details.

Described as "unlike any Bungie has ever created," Sandbox features a "tiered, open-world layout" that "combines large-scale vehicular combat with a limitless amount of Forge customization." It joins the previously revealed Assembly and Orbital maps.

The Halo 3 Mythic Map Pack will be included in the Halo Wars Limited Edition, slated to hit North America on March 3, and will likely hit as a paid Xbox 360 download later on.

In addition, two pieces of art from Bungie's standalone Halo 3 prequel Halo 3: ODST were provided, both of which were previously featured in Game Informer. Due this fall, the standalone Xbox 360 game is said to pack 3-5 hours of gameplay for under $60.

    I'm sorry but that level looks fucking awful.

      It does, doesn't it? I imagine it was made for Forge users to play in though. Plus they could have picked a better angle to showcase it.

        Maybe I don't fully understand it but how is this level "unlike any Bungie has ever created"? It's some terrain and a bunch of box shaped platforms. Am I missing something here? I never played around with forge that much even though I know you can do some cool things with it. However, I fail to see why this level is so awesome.

          pretty sure you can move all of those big cement structures around in forge, is the point.

          although yeah that doesn't make it "unlike any bungie has ever created" considering you can do the same shit in the warehouse level.

      Disregarding the actual content of the map, the fog makes it even more horrible. It just doesn't look right.
