First Halo 3 Map Pack Arrives December 11

Beginning December 11, three new multiplayer maps will be available for players of Bungie's Halo 3 (X360). Titled the Heroic Map Pack, its three maps--Foundry, Rat's Nest, and Standoff--will be downloadable from the online Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points ($10). Microsoft describes Standoff (pictured here) as "ideal for mid-sized objective and Slayer game types" due to its symmetrical layout and boulder-filled battlefield. Rat's Nest (pictured here) is said to be "an indoor vehicle paradise" best suited for big team battles, whereas Foundry (pictured here) is "the ultimate Forge map" as players can manipulate and replace every object object within it to create their own custom arena.

I’ll just wait till there free, I don’t believe in playing for extra maps which were most likely created before Halo 3 went gold anyway! It’s not like they’re going to be free anyway... I can wait

I'm sure I read somewhere that in Spring sometime the map packs would become free.

Its only for those people that want to get their hands on it now. :P

Just wait until feb/march and they should free. I haven't got a source, but I'm sure I remember reading it someplace.

"an option to spend $10 for something that probably took a team of people weeks/months to create and master, who are on high salaries, pfffft what a rip off"
