Halo 3: Old Maps Go Free, New Maps Get Detailed

Just a little reminder that Halo 3's Heroic Map Pack is now available for free for those of you with more sense than money.

To celebrate the price obliteration, Bungie also released details on the final map of the soon to be released Legendary Map Pack, which you can look forward to downloading for free probably sometime in July.

Blackout is a remake of the Halo 2 map you remember as Lockout. Unlike the pack's other "remake" map, Avalanche, which is more "inspired by" Halo 1's Sidewinder, Blackout is pretty much identical to its previous incarnation, with weapon spawns being the only significant change. Bungie maintains that this simple alteration, combined with the addition of Bubble Shields and Power Drains and the like, completely changes the feel of the map.

The Legendary Map Pack will be available for 800 Microsoft Points on April 15th.
