Halo 3 Legendary maps arrive

Trio. Triiio.

Master Chief has popped the Legendary Map Pack for Halo 3 on Xbox Live.

For 800 Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60) you get new Forge options and three painstakingly created multiplayer maps: Avalanche, Blackout and Ghost Town. Not one not two but three things in it.

Avalanche is a snow-coated affair inspired by the Sidewinder level from Halo: Combat Evolved; Blackout is a re-visualised version of Lockout from Halo 2; and Ghost Town is a completely fresh experience in a Jungle dominated by a building with enough nooks and crannies to be described as a giant block of Swiss cheese.

On top of this, Master Chief is offering early purchasers a free four-month subscription to the Bungie PRO file storage system. This expands your space to 250 MB so you can share all of your screenshots, videos and game types with your friends.

Matchmaking playlists should be updated to include the fresh maps, so you can get plenty of practice in before the Legendary Weekend that runs from 25th to 27th April.
