Halo: Reach Defiant Map Pack announced, trailer’d

Today Microsoft formally announced the latest Halo: Reach map pack, following rumors earlier in the month.

The Defiant Map Pack  (trailer above) will introduce three new environments to Reach‘s multiplayer universe: Condemned, Highlands, and Unearthed. The pack will sell for 800 MS points, or $10, and will debut sometime this March.

– “Condemned” takes place on Orbital Station Gamma and is best suited for Team Slayer, Team Objective, and Free for All.
– “Highlands” is located on a Military Wilderness Training Preserve on the planet Reach. It is a larger environment, suited best for Big Team Battle, Team Slayer, and Team Objective.
– Lastly, “Unearthed” is a Firefight map set inside a Titanium mine.

The maps were developed “in partnership” with Certain Affinity, a team that made maps for Halo 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and others.
