Four Maps Chosen for Halo: Reach Beta

The Halo: Reach beta kicks off on May 3 for owners of the Halo 3: ODST game disc and Bungie has been rolling out new information each week. Today, IGN has the details on the four maps that will be playable in the beta along with some bits on gametypes.

The maps are Sword Base, Powerhouse, Overlook, and Boneyard.

The first two, Sword Base and Powerhouse, and maps designed for Slayer and Headhunter games. Overlook is being included to test the new "Generator Defense" gametype, while Boneyard has been built for the mysterious Invasion gametype.

IGN has a lot more on the four beta maps including how they will play across the various modes and with some of Reach's new features.

      I was assuming there was an engine over-hall and we'd get 720p this time, is it really 640p again?

      i dont see how you even find this an issue? halo 3 looked good for its time, this looks even better.

      Modern warfare also ran at the same resolution and that still looked good.

      Even on my HDTV.
