Halo: Reach ‘Noble’ Map Pack Releases Nov. 30

Halo: Reach only came out a month ago today, but, unsurprisingly, Bungie’s already got a new multiplayer map pack in the works for the game that generated over $200 million dollars in the first 24 hours of release.  Slated to release on the last day of November, the “Noble” Map Pack contains three new multiplayer maps – “Anchor 9,” “Breakpoint,” and “Tempest” – and will set you back a cool 800 Microsoft FunBucks.

Anchor 9

“Anchor 9” is a map of the UNSC orbital refueling station, noted for its close-quarters combat in its “mirrored interior hallways and open central hangar bay.”  Anchor 9 supports 2-8 players in Free-For-All, Team Slayer, and Team Objective.


“Breakpoint” is a map through “modular archeological labs” at the crest of an icy cold peak.  Breakpoint supports 8-16 players in Invasion and Big Team Battle game types.


Lastly, “Tempest” takes you through an “abandoned shoreline facility that bends both sea and sky to unnatural purpose.”  Like Breakpoint, Tempest supports 8-16 players in Free-For-All, Team Slayer, Team Objective, and Big Team Battle.  Tempest also opens up new Forge opportunities, allowing players to create new custom map variants to share with the Halo community.

Think that’s all?  Think again.  For the achievement whores of the world, the Noble Map Pack will include new achievements, granting up to another 250 Gamerpoints for your e-peen.  Let the galactic fight continue!
