Next Halo 3 map revealed, another remake

Halo 3Bungie has finally figured out what it takes to keep fans happy. Additional content is always great, but it is even better when the nostalgia factor is thrown in. The Halo following is incredibly loyal, with players dating back to 2001 when the original Xbox was released. We love all the maps we’ve played with over the years, and sometimes we want to revist those late nights with two TVs, three couches, oatmeal cream pies, and cold pizza. For some it was rough. Maybe they sold their Xbox, or couldn’t find a big enough following to set up an old LAN for friends. It’s sad but it happens.

Luckily, Bungie has recognized this and has been making sure to include fan favorite remakes of old Halo/Halo 2 maps for Halo 3. The poster children for this design movement are Blackout and Avalanche, remakes of the popular Lockout and Sidewinder multiplayer maps from Halo’s past. Now a third remake map is joining the roster in the form of Cold Storage; a remake of the tight corridor Covenant facility Chill Out from Halo 1. Revealed at the recent MLG event in San Diego, Cold Storage looks like it will do what every remake has done before; take the tried-and-true formula we remember and revamp it into something even better. Who knows when the next map pack will be released, but I definetly know I’ll be buying it on day one.
