We knew the new map pack for Halo: Reach was coming in March, but now we know it's coming out for sure on March 15. Hey, that's one day right before Destructoid's birthday! The "Defiant Map Pack" will include two new versus maps (Condemned and Highlands) and one Firefight map (Unearthed.) It's important to note that Bungie had no hands in making these new maps and all credit goes to Certain Affinity and 343 Industries.

I got to try out Condemned and Unearthed earlier tonight and I really dug the Condemned map. It's set in an orbital space station overlooking the planet Reach as it's getting glassed by the Covenant. The visuals of the planet and everything going on out in space look so good that I'm pretty sure everyone will get assassinated at least once because they're too mesmerized by beautiful scene.

I also got to run around on Unearthed and it reminded me a lot of the Lost Platoon Firefight map from Halo 3: ODST. That's a good thing especially since I miss playing on a lot of those old Firefight maps.

Are the map packs worth it? If you've been dying for a reason to get back into Halo: Reach, then totally. The DLC goes for 800 MS Points and adds 150 new Achievement points. If you're on the fence or already have moved on, then there's no much for you here.
