Available now from the Live Marketplace for 800 points. I’ve spent some time with them so far and here are my thoughts. First up is Blackout:


Its a remake of Lockout from Halo 2 and since I haven’t played that at all I don’t have any idea what has changed. There is a large open helipad in the middle, multiple levels with confined rooms and walkways – the highest level is a good sniping spot.


There is even a basketball hoop to throw grenades through if you get bored. It is probably the best looking level of the three. Next up is Avalanche:


Remake of Sidewinder from Halo. It’s basically two big open spaces with a small enclosed area in the middle. Getting around the level is easy due to the man-cannons dotted about the place and the selection of vehicles outside your base.


Not a bad level but due to its size it is best suited to games with large numbers of players, seems like it would be a laugh on Rocket Race too. Now the final map, Ghost Town:


A totally new map built from the ground up, it takes place in a ruined compound of sorts with lots of rubble inside and out to use as cover. Multiple levels in the open-top buildings and a lot of good sniping spots.


Seems like it would be a pretty good map for Shotty Snipers or Infection-type games, which I generally hate. So far I would probably have to say that Blackout is my favourite of the three. To finish, here is a nice picture of me on said level energy-swording some poor soul in the face, knocking them over the side and winning the game for my team with the final kill:
