Halo 2 Map Pack out now

All nine maps up for grabs.

Today sees the launch of the Halo 2 Multiplayer Map Pack, which includes no less than nine brand new maps along with special updates to stop cheaters in their tracks.

There's also a weapons update, designed to balance everything out a bit, and all prior Xbox Live updates are included on the disc to ensure that offline players can enjoy a tip-top multiplayer experience too.

But that's not all - you also get special bonus content including an animated feature showing a different side of Old Mombasa, and a documentary that takes you behind the scenes at Bungie to meet the designers.

Four of the maps have already been released on Xbox Live, and you can now download the remaining ones for £7.99 - or wait a bit and download them for nowt, since Bungie has promised they'll all be available free of charge later in the year. The boxed map pack, complete with bonus content, costs £14.99.

For a full overview of each new map, visit the Bungie website. Expect a review of the Halo 2 Multiplayer Map Pack in the near future.
