It looks like we know what Bungie's big news is all about then; semi-official blog Gamerscore reports that a Halo 3 map pack will be hitting Xbox Live on December 11.

800 Microsoft points (6.80) gets you three maps - Standoff, Rat's Nest and Foundry. A bit pricey but we're sure plenty of you will hand over the cash regardless.


"Standoff's symmetrical valley, with its entrenched bases and fields of boulders is ideal for mid-sized objective and Slayer game types," says the official news blurb.

Rat's Nest meanwhile is described as a vast, labyrinthine of passages, "an indoor vehicle paradise, strongly influenced by the Campaign mode, ideal for big team battles."

Finally, Foundry is "the ultimate Forge map, players can edit every single object in this voluminous industrial warehouse, place stairways, walls, bridges and tunnels to create an entirely new play space and build almost any kind of map they can think of".

There you go then. Look out for it on December 11.

Are these new maps going to be required to play ranked matchmaking like the downloadable maps on Halo 2? I really don't care because I plan on buying them anyways but a lot of people will be pissed if they have to hand over an additional $10 to play Halo on Xbox live.
