In case you hadn’t seen and because Spring is fast approaching, Bungie has details on the first map, Ghost Town, in their Legendary Map Pack due soon. Fans of Halo 3 are probably itching to get this new map pack after spending tons of hours on the previous Heroic Map Pack. Remember, those of you who haven’t downloaded the Heroic Map Pack will be able to do so for free this Spring as well.
Q: What’s the fictional premise behind Ghost Town?
Vic: Ghost Town is the fragmented ruins of a small 24th century water purification complex that geographically lies just North and West of the jungle foothills hydroelectric facility from the Sierra 117 mission. The well-protected facility built into a shallow ravine was once home to the Global Water Campaign, where the still somewhat-pure Kilimanjaro meltwater was transported via pipelines from the river and directed to this small outpost where it became further purified, and then transported via GWC trans-African pipelines along the Tsavo Highway for distribution throughout the entire continent.
