* We're releasing a total of nine new multiplayer maps.
* All nine maps will eventually be available as Live downloads and as a normal boxed game disc - available at retail for $19.99 (US).
* The release on Live will be staggered, some paid, some free!
* The first two maps are free and coming in a few short weeks. (late April)
* The same day the 2 free maps are released, 2 additional maps will be available for purchase.
* The remaining 5 maps will be made available as a paid download on the same day the retail package goes on sale.
* The retail disc will contain extras, including a documentary, a cool project from our cinematic and animation team, every Halo 2 update released so far and possily one or two other little treats.
* By late summer, ALL the maps will be available for free.

Well I can say I was getting tired of Halo 2 without any new content, but now the soon to be released downloads (free and paid) is looking brilliant with new bigger and better maps with smarter layouts requiring more tactics and better team play.

I think Containment is the biggest map now, me and cpr had a team slayer match on it (me and cpr vs 3 others) a little mad for such a huge map, great for hide and sneak..... lock, more enemy tank

oh and me and cpr won...slaughtered the other team
