Yeah, you heard that right. The Noble Map Pack for Halo: Reach drops tomorrow, and we've got eight—count 'em, EIGHT—download codes to give away. Sure beats the 800 Microsoft points you'd be spending on it anyway, right? The pack includes seven new achievements and three new multiplayer maps: Anchor 9, Breakpoint, and Tempest. Click on after the jump for screens and descriptions of the maps, as well as instructions how to throw your hat in the ring...
Bungie's Description: "Within the confines of this low orbit dry-dock, UNSC craft undergo rapid repair and rearmament in support of the enduring war effort.Â But for the small squads of infantry who now fight over the mirrored interior hallways and open central hangar bay, this platform no longer provides any safe harbor—whether the close quarters combat is occurring inside or out of its artificial gravitational field. Anchor 9 allows 2-8 players to face off in game variants including Free for All, Team Slayer and Team Objective."
Our Favorite Feature: Get outside the shield windows, and you're in a low-grav environment that makes for colossal jumps—careful, though, lest you fall off and DIE A HORRIBLE RE-ENTRY DEATH.
Bungie's Description: "Atop this icy precipice, the Invasion continues. These modular archaeological labs were never intended to withstand such a large scale onslaught of Covenant military power, but the information being extracted here may prove vital to humanity's survival. In response to the imminent Covenant threat, UNSC ground and air assets have been deployed to bolster entrenched Spartan countermeasures. This dig site must yield salvation, or it will become a grave. Breakpoint offers multiplayer mayhem for 8-16 players, and supports the Invasion and Big Team Battle game variants.."
Our Favorite Feature: Inside one of the labs is a staircase up to a fenced-in walkway system that's ripe for insane CQB tactics. Melee time!
Bungie's Description: "This abandoned shoreline facility bends both sea and sky to an unnatural purpose, but the ground itself has quickly become another all too familiar battlefield. Though the two opposing symmetrical bases may never reveal their ancient purpose, both now offer makeshift shelter and access to strategic routes perfectly suited for small and large scale skirmishes alike. Tempest supports 8-16 players and offers a variety of modes including Free for All, Team Slayer, Team Objective and Big Team Battle. Tempest also provides players with a huge Forge palette, allowing them to create new custom map variants that can be shared with the community-at-large."
Our Favorite Feature: Criss-crossing man-cannons (II) leading to turret guns!
