On November 30th, the first map pack for Halo: Reach launches on Xbox LIVE and at retail locations worldwide. The Noble Map Pack introduces three new environments into the online multiplayer battlefield, each designed to reinforce all the vital war-fronts, from small scale engagements to massive invasion battlegrounds.
With the release of the Noble Map Pack, the fight for humanity will continue to rage on a galactic scale, from a frozen xeno-archaeology site harboring centuries old secrets, to an orbital anchor defending the stars high above planet Reach and to mysterious places far, far beyond:
This abandoned shoreline facility bends both sea and sky to an unnatural purpose, but the ground itself has quickly become another all too familiar battlefield. Though the two opposing symmetrical bases may never reveal their ancient purpose, both now offer makeshift shelter and access to strategic routes perfectly suited for small and large scale skirmishes alike.
Within the confines of this low orbit dry-dock, UNSC craft undergo rapid repair and rearmament in support of the enduring war effort. But for the small squads of infantry who now fight over the mirrored interior hallways and open central hangar bay, this platform no longer provides any safe harbour – whether the close quarters combat is occurring inside or out of its artificial gravitational field.
Atop this icy precipice, the Invasion continues. These modular archaeological labs were never intended to withstand such a large scale onslaught of Covenant military power, but the information being extracted here may prove vital to humanity’s survival. In response to the imminent Covenant threat, UNSC ground and air assets have been deployed to bolster entrenched Spartan countermeasures.
