I guess here is as good a place as any to post this.

I visited highimpacthalo.org briefly and saw a forum post with this picture:

Sure looks like it. Coco posted that pic and something about it a little while ago but I suck and I can't seem to find it. It was a couple weeks ago. Oh well.

It's NOT a Midship remake. It's a purple, Covenant-themed level, but it's not Midship.

Yeah I knew about the prince song, but is it also as working title for something else?

Coco, didn't Luke say that Purple Reign was going to be the official name?

I don't think he said that. He might have said something like "I want it to be the name," or something like that, jokingly.

Oh, I remeber him mentioning something about Moon Base Alpha being the possible official name to that map as well, but he might have been joking.

Moonbase Alpha/Spacecamp is another map. We have all of this documented at the Blog.

image.

Looking at that image now it really reminds me of the level "Gravemind" from Halo 2. There are many of those similar rooms like that on that level with a central "hub" in the middle that is two levels with a grav-lift in the center, and four walk ways leaving to the upper level.

See this at 2:38 for visual representation.

There's a pretty good chance that Cold Storage will release on 7/7 for free and the Mythic Map pack will consist of Purple Reign, Moonbase Alpha and an unknown map that will probably come out at the end of summer (August most likely).

These are my thoughts.

I originally was skeptical that there would even be any maps beyond the ones they've talked about, at least for a while, but Ghaleon was kind enough to point me to this BWU by Frank back in December. Keep in mind that this update came after the Heroic Map Pack.

We?re playing the next batch of DLC. This first trio has been very well received. Eventually your Halo experience will be so swollen and engorged that you?ll have a hard time even remembering what the original map selection was. In the future, we?ll be bringing you more fully custom built maps and they may include one or more of the following:

  • Symmetrical arena maps for competitive play.
  • Returning classics demanded by the fans.
  • Crazy new stuff you never expected.
  • Unusual maps with lots of potential for interesting game types.
  • Graphically spectacular settings.
  • More Forge objects to use on new maps.
  • Surprises.

After this statement, we received the Legendary Map Pack (Blackout, Avalanche and Ghost Town), a reveal of Cold Storage as well as hints on Reign and Moonbase. These are six maps. As Ghaleon pointed out, it would seem odd that they would end right there. That only six would be the "swollen and engorged" scenario which will give us a hard time "remembering what the original map selection was."

It is likely that there are other maps in the pipeline as we speak, probably being generated by a small team of level designers. Because of this, I think we'll end up getting content throughout the rest of the year and possible into the spring of next year. Some questions I have would be...
  • Will Reign and Moonbase be in a small, lower-priced 2-map pack or is there a third which will launch with it?
  • When will the Legendary Map Pack be free? You can bet that it will, due to the architecture of matchmaking, but when? Later this year? Next year?
  • Are they designing anymore remakes? Midship? Sanctuary?
  • Will they ever consider the "dirty port" option at all for a pack full of precise/exact remakes, as Sketch suggested on HBO?
  • Will we get anything like Foundry going forward, a sandbox map in a more appealing?
Hopefully we get more answers in the coming weeks or at least more clues to tide us over.
