Microsoft Launches new Halo: Reach Defiant Map Pack
 
 

This will be great news for hoards of Halo: Reach fans out there. Microsoft has announced the launch of a new multiplayer map pack for the game. The new map pack brings three more areas for multiple player battles to rage.

The map pack is on Xbox Live right now and will cost you 800 Microsoft Points. The Defiant Map Pack has three battlefields set on the besieged planet of Reach. One of the maps is the first downloadable firefight map ever.

The first of the maps is Condemned set on Orbital Station Gamma. This is a space station in orbit above the planet. Before the invasion the station was used for long-range communications between fleets and Earth. The bulk of the station was damaged in the attack, but the fight takes place in remaining fortified sections of the station. The Condemned map supports 6-12 players with game types of Team Slayer, Team Objective, and Free for All.

Highlands is a map that takes place on the Military Wilderness Training Preserve on Reach. This a large wooded area where Spartans trained before the war began. The map allows for 8-16 players in Big Team Battle, Team Slayer, and Team Objective play modes.

Unearthed is a map that takes place inside a large titanium mine in the Viery civilian sector of Reach. The mine is used for all sorts of things for the military. This is the firefight map and is the first of its kind. The map allows up to four players to launch a counter assault against the enemy in firefight and Generator Defense modes. The map pack adds new achievements worth up to 150 Gamerscore points. Halo: Reach is also now available on Games on Demand.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
