    343 just announced a new pack, Cahmpions Pack I believe. It contains two maps, Pitfall, a remake of The Pit from Halo 3, and Vertigo (?) an all new one, two week exclusive access to a new game mode, Ricochet which is like Grifball mixed with Slayer and you can throw the ball in the goal to score (it actually looks really good fun) and some new armour sets, weapon skins and stances. It's 800MSP for all of it or you can buy it all seperately for varying prices.

    I would normally have preferred an extra map to the other stuff but the skins do look really cool, you can make yourself look like an ODST!

    Oh yes The Pit. Would of been amazing if they put out some more H3 remakes.

    Looks great of course, however the maps may end up disappearing like most other dlc. Puts me off getting it but i'll stomach it and buy the pack for the richochet mode alone

    New Champions bundle includes new armor and weapon skins, and all sorts!

    Some of the new armour mods sound fun, Survivor perk gives you an ejector seat if the vehicle you're in blows up.

    I can't be bothered to trawl through the thread so could someone help me out with some map pack questions:

    Anyone recommend any of the Halo 4 map packs in particular? I've been playing on and off for a while but I'm bored of the same old maps. I usually play slayer and big team slayer variations.

    Do the DLC maps appear in the normal map rotations or do they have their own playlist? If so, are there many players on these playlists?

    Cheers.

    Halo games work like this...

    You buy a map pack and discover you can never play it. Unless private match with friends.

    If you play a lot of Halo 4 and plan to continue playing, then it's worth buying the War Games pass that gives you all three map packs.  The dlc maps don't come up hardly at all in Big Team unfortunately, but they do come up in 4v4 Slayer and other playlists, plus there is a new playlist coming soon of Legendary Slayer, which is 4v4 on various maps including dlc maps across (I think) all three packs.  Halo 4 is also going to carry on receiving lots of support from 343i for at least another year, even well after the Xbox One is released.

    Or, if you really only want one pack, then they are soon going to change over the dedicated dlc playlist from Crimson to Majestic (or Majestic to Crimson I forget which, whichever one is on the playlist now is going to be swapped out for the other).

    343i also stated in their latest blog on waypoint, that they are looking at possible solutions to allow people to play the dlc maps.

    On the other hand, the new Champion Pack is out soon, which will include 2 or 3 new maps that will probably get their own playlist for a month or two.  The pack will be 800 points, or you can get just the maps separately from all the other fluff that comes with it for (I think) 480 msp.

    I really should play some more Halo. I haven't for a while now - ever since my PC started firing on all cylinders I've been less inclined to.

    Everyone sign up for the Global Challenge (on now).  All you've got to do is finish 20 matchmaking games in the challenge playlist this week to qualify.

    I got Halo 4 last year, started playing something else, gave my copy to my nephew and got it back a week or so ago. Blasting through the SP (it's good but not epic) and thought i'd have a go at the MP and have to say i'm enjoying it.

    So, question is, what DLC do I need so that i'm on par with everyone else as I can see me playing this to GTA5 is out


    Cheers

    Halo 4 MP. I have a weird relationship with this.

    I'll forget about it for months, try it again, have superb fun on Big Team Battle (it's never frustrating - even when things dont go your way - and provides many genuine laughs, unlike COD), play it non-stop for a week, then...just forget about it again for another few months.

    Nobody needed to know this, so apologies.

    No worries. I have the exact same thing with Reach and 4's multiplayer. I play it almost excessively for a week or two, have a whale of a time and then forget about it for months.

    Yep, me too. Might give it a spin now, actually.

    So that went really well, I must have been saving up all the awesome or that first match. MVP by a long way.

    Would have been perfect had it not been for my three betrayals followed by a swift boot...

    The best thing to do right now is to wait for 343i to (hopefully) make a DLC playlist or 2. I would like them to make a 4v4 and a BTB playlist just for the DLC maps. Anyway, at the moment you will basically never get a DLC map, so don't bother wasting your money, if you're going to play Halo 4 often once 343i sort out this DLC problem, I'd advise getting the map pass.

    They have the one dlc playlist that seems to rotate between the 3 map packs although its pretty much ignored by players. I had s chance to play the 4v4 maps recently which was very nice considering I wasted money on the season pass.

    Going forward I'd like to see 343 implement a proper plalylisy system and stop copying bungies failings

    I think if 343 were going to do DLC-only playlists outside of rotating Crimson et al they would have done it by now.

    Some of those BTB DLC maps, I think I only got to play like once or twice. Complete waste of money, I'll never put on a life jacket again.

    I mean buy a season pass.

    Not from the map pack, but played my first game on Forge Island on BTB today on standard rotation. Looked a bit like Blood Gultch...don't know the name. I fear Halo 4 really isn't getting the attention it deserves for Forge. The new lighting is brilliant - can't tell it apart from non-Forge maps.

    Is it true that who ever is top of the players list (when you press X in pre-game lobby) that guy has host?

    Isn't that list in alphabetical order? Host is based on connection.

    Edit: apparently not alphabetical, and host is a top of list.

    It looks a bit inconclusive if you look it up. Apparently the list is about 90% accurate :confused:

    Really don't get why they can't make a Small/Big DLC list.

    The reason could be there isn't enough people for matchmaking to work well.

    I guess Bungie got away with it because more people played, they made dlc playlists, some dlc went free and they could keep playlists to a minimum, something that 343 don't get even after dictating Reach.

    343 need to do what Redsparrows suggested and just hope for the best. Halo 4 is probably too far gone to change it now and see an effect. They might be screwed either way.

    For all we know, hardly anyone bought map packs. The community plummeted soon after release so it wouldn't be surprising.

    I think the only fair thing to do now, is make the DLC free. It wouldn't bother me...at least I could then play the maps.

    Do many people still play halo 3 online? I played a bit of reach here and there but it was only 3 I put serious hours into. Not about to play halo 4 anytime soon, the whole cod style puts me off. 3 was just perfect

    The problem with lumping all the DLC together is that not everyone will have all of it. You're forcing everyone to get it all or lose out on what they've bought. They need to understand that the population isn't as big as CoD and need to work around it with fewer categories.

    But yes, after a period of time the DLC needs to be made free to all and added into regular rotation.

    Shocker, I was in a lobby last night where everyone had the DLC and we got to play some DLC maps (even though some nobs were voting against them).

    Literally, the only time in countless days of matchmaking I've seen them come up in regular Team Slayer.
