The Crimson playlist is there if you only want to play the Crimson map pack and nothing else. If all other players you are matched with in the regular playlists have the Crimson map pack, it'll still give you some options on those maps. In other words, you can still play on the Crimson maps while in the other playlists.


Thanks a lot for the info man, sorry for the late reply. finally finished the SP just now, good ending, quite emotional. this was a good game, to me as good as Halo 3 and much better than Reach.

Halo 4: Majestic Map Pack Details

It's been developed in tandem with external developer Certain Affinity, which has worked on several pieces of Halo content for Microsoft in the past.
The expansion contains 3 new maps designed for up-close-and-personal gameplay, best suited to small teams. The maps are titled Landfall, Monolith and Skyline.

Furthermore, the pack includes 2 new DLC playlists and a new free-for-all game mode called Infinity Rumble. The game is set up in a way that every kill and death feels meaningful, this is created by having slower spawn times in the free-for-all matches. Infinity Rumble will be exclusive to the Majestic DLC playlist for a period of time. The 2 new playlist are Majestic FFA DLC for 8 players, and Majestic Team DLC for 4 vs. 4.
There are 10 new achievements, if you're into that sort of thing – that's 250 points.
The new maps will also be integrated into existing Infinity Slayer, Capture the Flag, SWAT, Regicide, Doubles, Team Objective and Team Throwdown playlists. DLC maps will appear in a playlist if all members of the match have the content purchased or the War Games Map Pass, Microsoft said.

800 MS Points // Included with War Games Pass // April

I'm quite behind on those myself, probably even further behind than you.

Yeah, everyone is playing the newest episode so I have to go it alone, not a issue but it makes the time it takes to finish each chapter longer. I hope they use these episodes to tie into halo 5 though.

These will be hopefully better than Crimson. Halo 4 seriously lack smaller maps. :/

From the numbers of users I see playing in my area of live, dunno if it's split up by EU and US servers or whatever but way more people seem to play big team slayer compared to a few hundred playing some of the other modes. I figure they see this and just go with that, more maps for more players etc.

I really want to know if they'll do a new season of Spartan Ops or what? The way season one ended is a good setup for halo 5 though.

I think that is a result of Halo 4 launching with mostly larger maps. Most of them are made for 8v8 games and I find myself preferring big team slayer more otherwise I'd spend most time walking around. They kind of fixed it in majestic but it is restricted to its own playlist now and even there I get CTF and other objective types when I want to play just plain old team slayer!
So back to big team slayer for me :/

Spartan Ops is supposed to be based on before Halo 5. I'm only speculating that they will be in search of the rest of the rings, arcs, and any other Forerunner technology they'd hope to not let the Covenant take control of.

But as far as I'm concerned with Dr.Halsey, Master Chief is going to be different in Halo 5, behavior wise, because she obviously was the reason for his generation.

No hint at a season 2 for Spartan Ops? Or maybe it's too soon and they do it closer to the release of the next gen halo 5?
