Microsoft and 343 Industries have also announced that there will be lots of additional content landing in the months post-launch and the War Games Map Pass will be your ticket to getting it all at a 15% discount. Costing 2,000 Microsoft Points, the pass confirms your access to 3 War Games map packs as they become available in December, February and April, as well as giving you two bonus in-game helmets (Scanner and Strider) that feature new geometry, and a unique in-game emblem (Falcon).
Exploring new worlds and wonders, all three Map Packs provide classic “Halo” combat and exciting ways to experience the new feature-set of “Halo” Infinity Multiplayer.
Crimson Map Pack (December release timeframe)
Maps: Wreckage, Harvest, Shatter

Majestic Map Pack (February release timeframe)
Maps: Landfall, Monolith, Skyline
Description: Landfall’s emphasis is on infantry battles against a glittering ocean on a distant world, while Monolith exposes you to the naked vacuum of space – and the firepower of opposing teams, and Skyline’s distinctly industrial feel provides new challenges in somewhat familiar, but occasionally confined spaces.
Castle Map Pack (April release timeframe)
Maps: Daybreak, Outcast, Perdition
Description: Daybreak is set in a military facility against the backdrop of an idyllic mountain range, while Outcast plunges you into the warrens, canyons and arches of an alien edifice, and Perdition takes players into the heart of an urban sprawl, with tactical speed and situational awareness its key features.
