343 Industries announced to TGS audiences that plans to bring the classic Halo map Headlong to Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary with the new title of Breakneck. First introduced in Halo 2, the map is set within the New Mombasa locale. Breakneck’s original geography has been updated with tweaked visuals and audio for the upcoming release. Check out video footage, showcasing the classic map’s new look and some shots of the map being used as God intended: as the backdrop for brutal Spartan-on-Spartan violence.

The announcement of Breakneck arrives in good time to ensure that Halo: Reach fans will be looking forward to Combat Evolved’s Oct. 4. That’s when the multiplayer beta for Combat Evolved Anniversary will be available to all Reach players with an active Xbox Live Gold membership. By the time the game launches on Nov 15, a full complement of classic maps and playlists will be part of the suite of multiplayer options, as well as fan favorites, like the original's Magnum pistol. Looking forward to a taste of the new Headlong?

    So I might just be cynical/picky/bitchy, but when they're releasing an anniversary version for Halo 1, and they aren't doing the full multiplayer (for totally understandable reasons based on not splitting the playerbase) and they're only giving us 6 competitive multiplayer maps (again somewhat understandable considering their desired price-point), why would they waste a space on a Halo 2 map? Headlong in a map pack, fine. But in the anniversary edition for Halo *1* ? I'd have much rather had Boarding Action or Sidewinder.

    I agree, it makes no sense and why not save it for the inevitable cash-in remake of Halo 2

    OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW $hit loved this map in H2 to bad... me im not a fan of reach. I mean it was aweomse, but it really wasnt my favorite. Good campaign but i didnt really get into any else and when i did play MP it kinda made me very bored. But overall nice pick for remake

    NICE! Now please give me Turf and Relic from 2 and High Ground from 3 and I'll be one happy camper!

    Hell yeah, Headlong! This was one of my favourite maps of Halo 2. PS: Since when did these comments get a filter/censorship system?

    Oh yeah, I saw a video of it a few weeks ago. I can't wait, Headlong is my favorite map in the series.
