Halo 4 DLC Maps: How is this going to work?

343i really haven’t made it very clear. Are we getting 9 extra maps on release or 9 extra maps for future download some point down the line? Please tell me community I’m so confused!

At some point down the line.

9 maps split over three future DLC’s.

> At some point down the line.

That’s kinda dumb. Why don’t people just grind for the specialisations and buy the map-packs later? Who’s gonna pay an extra £20 for a skin.

if they do it down the line im guessing were just paying for a season pass and if not then i think it just be codes we would have to redeem.

Not really. I made a thread about the cost of the L.E. a couple of days ago.

Essentially, when you buy it, (including things that are to be received in the future) you’re saving a total of about $25-50 USD. Essentially, you’re receiving those 9 maps; for free.

But it still costs much less to buy the collector edition than waiting to buy the map packs.

  • there are little goodies.

How’s that dumb? Season Passes are pretty much all the rage lately. Pre-paid DLC means no hassle paying for them later.

Also, it’s not just a free weapon skin, it’s also 2 items for your avatar, an exclusive in game emblem, a unique Spartan Armor, a version of FuD with extra bonus footage, and a limited edition case and booklet.

In other words you are getting your $69.99 game, $30.00 in DLC = $99.99 total, and then a good $10.00 at least in other SWAG.
