Halo 2 maps reborn for Halo: Reach

Recommended Videos

Fan of the maps “Ivory Tower” and “Midship” from Halo 2? Great news — Bungie has reworked those maps for the upcoming Halo: Reach.

The map known as “Reflection” in Halo: Reach is said to be a near-perfect remake of “Ivory Tower,” the main differences being technical, like changes to fit Reach‘s new physics systems. However, because of the game’s new abilities, playing on the map should feel quite different. Jet packs and sprinting will make certain jumps easier, for instance.

Another map, “Zealot” is based heavily on Halo 2‘s “Midship,” although not a one-to-one remake. While the lower portion of the map will feel familiar, a brand new upper level opens up a slew of new gameplay and strategic options.

IGN has more details on both maps, along with a third, called “Spire.” Halo: Reach is out September 14. You’re buying it, right?
