Halo Wars Battle Map Pack launches

Microsoft offer us a little history

A brand new update for Halo Wars is now live on the Xbox Live Arcade, and can be yours for 800 Microsoft Points, that's the word in from Major Nelson this morning.

The so-called Historical Map Pack offers up four new maps, and is likely to be welcomed by those still playing Ensemble's RTS take on the Halo world.

Here's the official scoop on the maps themselves: "Blood River - battle a single opponent over a treacherous natural chokepoint; Barrens - engage your enemy in the midst of the Flood; Memorial Basin - two vs. two team play in one of the bloodiest battles in Halo history; and Glacial Ravine - three vs. three action as you fight to control a narrow corridor flanked by energy walls."

RIP Ensemble.
