New Reach Maps are coming

On November 30th Bungie will drop the Noble Map Pack on Halo Reach fans. Players will get three stuning new maps for a price tag of 800 Microsoft Points.

The fight for humanity continues on a galactic scale. From a frozen xeno-archaeology site harboring secrets centuries old to an orbital anchor defending the stars high above planet Reach to mysterious places far, far beyond, the Noble Map Pack injects three new explosive environments into the multiplayer battlefield, each designed to reinforce all of Halo: Reach’s vital warfronts, from small scale engagements to massive Invasion battlegrounds.

Here’s a look at the new maps…

Anchor 9

Breakpoint

Tempest

Nice to see some epic looking maps with a decent price tag. Even though a certain other game will probably have a big hold on me in November, I think these maps defiantly deserve some time.

Bungie Day 2010

On the seventh day of the seventh month Bungie comes together to say thank you to the fans. This years Bungie Day comes with the gift fire! For today only all players on Halo 3 can equip themselves with a flaming helmet usually reserved for Bungie employees. That’s right people team up and pwn others Ghost Rider style. But only for today so get it while it’s hot!

On behalf of the entire Bungie team, thank YOU for being awesome. We wouldn’t be here without you. Sure, we’d be somewhere, just not here…probably more like the cold damp basement of an rundown school building in Chicago.

Stand strong 7th Column, everything is proceeding exactly as planned. World Domination is quickly coming into reach.

Bungie teams up with Activision?

This has to be some kind of last minute April Fools joke right?? Wrong.

UK, April 29, 2010 – Bungie has just announced a deal with Activision Blizzard, spanning some ten years, that will see the publishing giant releasing the Halo developer’s next big franchise. (via ign.com)

We all knew Halo would come to an end eventually. The upcoming Halo Reach will most likely be Bungie’s last work in the series. But save your tears. It’s all for the best, especially with Bungie suiting up for Activision.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, you most likely know about the fall of Infinity Ward. It seems like everyday IW is losing at least a handful of employees. Until soon IW will be no more.

With the recent bad press against Activision could something good come out of Bungie’s partnership? Well that depends. As long as Bungie is allowed to give us the same quality in a game that they have given us in the past I have no qualms. But if Bungie is swallowed whole and Activision spits out the shattered pieces of what was an amazing developer…well that’s a different story.

Honestly we(all gamers) don’t care who you side with Bungie. We just want amazing games. Don’t lose your integrity and we can all get along and be happy playing our games.
