Major Nelson confirmed via his blog that the new Halo 4 'Castle Map Pack' DLC will be released on the 8th of April.

The DLC will cost you 800:msp: or it will be free for War Games Map Pack Pass holders and will feature three "medium-to-large" sized maps that emphasize on "vehicular warfare and large battles over open spaces, where team strategy is key to successfully conquering the battlefield."

A new playlist titled 'Castle DLC' will also be introduced and will be six-versus-six, along with nine new achievements worth 250 Gamerscore.

Take a look at the official trailer below, and look even further down the page for some screenshots and a description of the new maps.

New Battlegrounds: Castle Map Pack

  • Daybreak: Two UNSC bases oppose each other in this large asymmetrical map. Teams must split focus between attacking the enemy base while playing close defense to their own. Claim your team’s sniper rifle to cover the central Man Cannon, or grab a Warthog to push through the side channels and flank the enemy base. The Rocket Launcher and Banshee both spawn in positions diagonal to the starting bases; claiming their firepower early is crucial to land the first flag cap or take an early lead in kills.

  • Outcast: Controlling vehicle paths is critical in this circular map set in a desert environment. Outcast features frequent Mantis vs. Wraith battles, so teams must keep their drivers informed with constant communication to get the drop on enemy vehicles. While driving the Mantis, you can target fusion coils in tunnels to flush out camping opponents directly into your rain of fire, or cover your flag runner’s dash to a friendly Warthog. If you find yourself without a vehicle, race to the secondary bases to secure a power weapon or drop on enemies for a game-changing hijack.

  • Perdition: Blending long sightlines, vehicles, and close-quarters combat, Perdition caters to nearly any gameplay style. Wheelmen and gunners will be right at home in this urban environment as a well-placed Warthog can lock down a quarter of the map, securing valuable ordnances for the team. Learning the interior routes is essential to both escaping danger and finishing off ranged kills. Be sure to look for the Gravity Hammer in Power Station 3 – an ideal revenge weapon against a pesky sniper or a big surprise for an enemy Warthog.
