Did you not read the latest PR. 343 are hilariously bad at this.
I think Harvest is the only new map I like. And that too for only CTF. Kinda glad I got the map pack in the MS fuck up cause I would have been a little pissed if I had paid for it. Got bored of them and went back to normal maps pretty soon.
They need to get extraction as a non DLC playlist.
Many of you participated in our 14 Day - Buy and Play program, a special offer that granted early access to six Specializations. As part of that program, we are providing complimentary access to the Crimson Map Pack for a limited time (through Tuesday, December 18 at 9am UTC/GMT). At that time, the complimentary limited access to the Crimson Map Pack will close, and 14 Day - Buy and Play program participants will no longer be able to access the content for online play (please note anybody who has already purchased the Crimson Map Pack or owns the Halo 4 Map Pass or Limited Edition will not be impacted and will continue to have access to the content after the complimentary access period ends).
They actually think people will believe that was the case from the start.
If you enjoy the new maps and would like to continue playing on them after that date, the Crimson Map Pack can be purchased through the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 800 MS Points, or via purchase of the War Games Map Pass. We hope youre enjoying the special Crimson Map Pack preview, and well see you on the (new!) virtual battlefields.
Honesty goes a long way, pity 343 have zero.
Microsoft have truly sucked the soul out, just a corporate machine now. Not fair to hate on the staff, don't know how hand tied they are, kinda feel sorry for them, great IP and true colours of Microsoft polluting every aspect. I think they are going to have one hell of a staff turn over with horror stories of development culture and series direction.
