Second “Halo 3″ Mythic Map Pack Drops onto Xbox LIVE on February 2, 2010

“Halo” fans, make ready your battle rifles and prepare to step into an expanded fight on Xbox LIVE

LONDON – 20 January 2010 - Mythic 2 Map Pack, a Game Add-on developed by Bungie for “Halo 3” consisting of three multiplayer maps available previously only on the “Halo 3: ODST” multiplayer disc, is set to arrive on Xbox LIVE on February 2, 2010.

The release of the Mythic 2 Map Pack brings the total number of “Halo 3” multiplayer maps to 24. The Game Add-on includes three action-packed maps: Heretic, Citadel and Longshore.

- Heretic brings players to familiar ground as the “Halo 2” arena Midship returns in “Halo 3.” The stark interior of the Pious Inquisitor might appear austere on first glance, but Heretic’s symmetrical spaces require players to execute complex strategies in order to outplay their opponents.

- Citadel may be a long abandoned Forerunner stronghold, but its small, symmetrical confines are far from secure. Two opposing bases offer little safety for players looking for solace. Instead, Citadel forces small squads to stay in constant communication, keep their heads on a swivel, and be prepared to adjust combat tactics in close quarters.

- Longshore lacks the commercial ships that once made it a lucrative port for Old Mombasa, but it still bustles with activity. Designed for large-scale combat and well-suited for smaller affairs, Longshore’s multitude of industrial buildings, elevated walks, and open inlets conspire to create a complex battleground tailored for multiple combat scenarios.

Mythic 2 Map Pack will be available on Xbox LIVE for 800 Microsoft Points. Mythic Map Pack 1 and 2 are also included in “Halo 3: ODST”, which includes the complete “Halo 3” multiplayer map collection, an all-new campaign and the incredibly popular cooperative experience, Firefight. “Halo 3: ODST” will act as a key to the upcoming “Halo: Reach” multiplayer beta which goes live later this Spring.

Additionally, beginning today “Halo” fans can contribute to Bungie’s relief efforts for Haiti by participating in the “Be a Hero” campaign on Xbox LIVE. For every 1,000 people that wear a red heart emblem and play “Halo 3” or “Halo 3: ODST” online today or tomorrow, Bungie will donate $100 to Red Cross, up to $77,000.

    Apart from Longshore they’re not very good. Especially Heretic which was already lame in H2.

    How on earth could you hate ODST… unless you’ve never played a Halo game before?

    ODST had arguably the second best campaign in the series (nothing beats Halo CE).

    I don’t like UC2, but I don’t hate the game, and I can recognize its merrits.

    At the most that should be the case with Halo ODST. Nothing worng with the game, and for what it does, it does it VERY well. People that claim they hate it are prolly just being bias. Btw, Halo is not my cup of tea either, but its match making system is something of an artiistic piece of work.

    I don’t hate it on its merits. BY its own merits I found it mediocre BUT I have always found halo mediocre apart from the first game.

    My fundamental problem with ODST is the fact that the bloody thing could EASILY been either DLC a la GTA 4 or released for £20.

    There is absolutely no reason to include halo 3 MP in the package when after all if you buy ODST the n you already bloody won halo 3!! >:(
