Continuing with the remastered theme of Halo 2 multiplayer maps, Lockout is the newest addition to Xbox One’s exclusive Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
If you forget Lockout, or just didn’t happen to play it the first time around, a new gameplay video shows a fast-paced, close quarters laboratory in the “frigid mountains of Delta Halo.” With enough routes that will allow skilled players to quickly navigate the map, the first to reach powerful weapons will gain the much-needed upper hand.
When asked about the map, Max Hoberman, one of the original lead designers of Halo 2, said, “Lockout was hands-down the most popular small arena-style map in Halo 2.”
Hoberman continued, “We’re thrilled to be bringing this fan-favorite back, and are paying close attention to the details and subtleties that made the original great while also making a couple of very careful, very calculated enhancements. Most prominent among these are a bit of cover added to the ‘Elbow,’ the long walkway connecting the grav lift to the sniper tower, and a dynamic element that should help counter an entrenched group of enemies. Of course this can be disabled in Forge for players who want a near-match of the original experience.”
Coming to Xbox One on November 11th, Halo: The Master Chief Collection is looking to be shaping up fairly nicely.
