Halo 3 Legendary Map Pack screens

Halo 3 isn't gong to go away any time soon. If you're still wondering whether or not to buy the Heroic Map Pack, make your mind up quickly becauseBungie's got another one sliding down the pipes.

The Legendary Map Pack is due out this spring and the first map to be revealed is called Ghost Town. The studio describes it as an "abandoned shell in Africa," set around the Sierra 117 level from the single player game.

We've posted the first screens on this page and Bungie says, "Essentially Ghost Town is an asymmetric map designed for 4v4 encounters, it's meant to be a strong infantry map where you get a nice range of close combat and longer range. The spaces are set up to allow two to three person squads a good bit of operating room and several tactical options."

Artist Cameron Pinard added, "From the earliest iterations it had some elements that reminded me vaguely of Lockout, visually it has some elements similar to Warlock and Sanctuary, and it also pulls from Sierra 117 and Crow's Nest from the single player. Overall we really wanted to define a distinctive look for Ghost Town that strays outside of somewhat more traditional Halo environments."
