Late last night, Jessica Shea (BS Angel) of 343 Industries brought us a glimpse of what’s to come in the near future of our Halo 4 gaming joy between now and the end of February.
The next DLC installment titled the Majestic Map Pack is set to be released on February 25th which is then to be followed by the Castle Map Pack on April 1st. With the release of the Majestic Map Pack a Title Update will follow shortly.
The Majestic Map Pack will consist of 3 new maps: Landfall, Monolith and Skyline.
Description: Landfall’s emphasis is on infantry battles against a glittering ocean on a distant world, while Monolith exposes you to the naked vacuum of space – and the firepower of opposing teams, and Skyline’s distinctly industrial feel provides new challenges in somewhat familiar, but occasionally confined spaces.
More details on the upcoming releases can be found here.
