Attendees of a recent Major League Gaming event in San Diego
were rewarded for their ability to watch other people play video games for eight hours with a visit from Bungie figureheads Shishka and Lukems, who gave the glassy-eyed viewers a sneak peek at their newest multiplayer map for Halo 3
, named "Cold Storage". This new map is apparently set in the back room of a Cold Stone Creamery
, as part of Bungie's recent partnership with the highly successful, treatweaving corporation.
Actually, the map closely resembles a level from Halo
the first, titled "Chill Out"
. It was one of the game's more unique maps, due to it's smaller size and asymmetry -- though how those aspects will carry over into the remake has yet to be revealed, as Bungie has yet to "formally" announce said map. Apparently, speaking to a roomful of professional video game spectators
doesn't count as a formal social engagement. Who'd have thunk it?
