A recent Halo Bulletin contained some new information and screenshots to show off the new Champions DLC bundle before its release on the 20th of August.

The new DLC was revealed at a RTX event by 343 Industries, and they explained in more detail how the interactive features on the remade maps would work. Two of the classic maps from Halo 3 have been remade and will be available in the DLC, they are Vertigo and The Pit.

Vertigo is an asymmetrical map that provides a wide variety of indoor and outdoor combat. The map lends itself best to Slayer and Extraction game types and is best played with anywhere from 8 to 10 players. Vertigo also touts the return of a dynamic, interactive element in a Halo multiplayer map: Each base has a trigger point that depletes the shields of all players in range when shot. The map also contains a series of caves on each side as well as three levels of verticality, providing players with several different routes for attacking each base.”


Here you can see some screenshots that compare the new remake of 'The Pit' with the old version from Halo 3. The layout is mostly the same, but the graphics are very different and there are a few changes to the area known as 'The Sword Room.'




Information about the new tactical ability, known as 'Resistor,' and two new armor mods known as 'Survivor' and 'Rejector' were revealed. The 'Resistor' will allow gamers to retain full sprint whilst being shot for a few moments, and it will be available early to those who purchase the Champions Bundle.

The 'Survivor' armor mod will eject players from a vehicle when it is about to explode meaning they can avoid the instant kill explosion and the 'Resistor' mod will be available to Halo 4 players before the 20th of August.

There will also be a whole load of new player customisations in the bundle, including new armor skins, weapon skins, and stances for player card. Take a look at the images below.


As above, the DLC will be released on the 20th of August and will cost 800:msp:

          It is going to be interesting to see "The Pit" return from Halo 3 but there are many other maps from Halo games that I would have preferred to see.

                  They are introducing a new game mode and two maps, I would have thought there would be achievements.

                      Why don't you want more achievements? More gamerscore for the win.
