Halo 3 will have a new version of the Turf map from Halo 2 • Eurogamer.net
Plus new campaign collectibles, Flood Firefight, and more.
343 has outlined a number of new features coming to Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Chief among them is a new Halo 3 map called Icebox, which is a remake of the classic Halo 2 map, Turf.
Icebox was originally a canceled Halo Online multiplayer map (343 has added Halo Online maps to Halo 3 before). Unlike the original, which is set in Mombasa, Icebox is set in the Russian city of Tyumen.
Here’s a work-in-progress image of Icebox in Halo 3:
The video below shows the Icebox gameplay in Halo Online:
in a mail Describing what will be available in the MCC season 8 test, 343 also teased Flood Firefight with the image, below:
343 said an update to Halo 3: ODST Firefight will include customization options per wave “bringing it closer to the options in Halo: Reach.”
There are lots of other cool things in store for this upcoming test, currently scheduled for next week. Includes a custom game browser for Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 3, the return of the classic HUD to Halo: Combat Evolved with 4K support and a change in settings, and interestingly, new campaign collectibles in the Halo 3 campaign (343 didn’t say what they are exactly).
It’s great that 343 continues to update Halo: The Master Chief Collection, even as the studio prepares Halo: Infinite for release. Even better, Halo 3 continues to get new maps 13 years after its release.
