During the past few months of Bungie Weekly Updates, team Bungie
has openly talked about two of their new and yet to be released Halo 3
multiplayer maps, giving them the code names "Purple Reign" and "Moonbase Alpha
". And ever since the Chill Out remake Cold Storage was announced
this weekend, we've been wondering which of the two code named maps Cold Storage was. Well, now we know the truth. Cold Storage wasn't code named either "Purple Reign" or "Moonbase Alpha", it was never previously discussed by team Bungie and was actually code named "Smuggler". This code name name confirmation comes straight from Bungie's own Lukems who pretty much confirmed
that team Bungie is working on at least three new Halo 3
maps (Cold Storage, "Purple Reign" and "Moonbase Alpha") while we were under the impression that only two were in development. Those sneaky foxes!
If we had to guess, we'd say that we'll be seeing a Halo 3
Mythic Map Pack (catchy name, no?) release sometime this Fall, featuring three new maps and costing an oh so traditional 800 Microsoft points. Write that down kids, we won't be wrong ...
