Halo 2 Blastacular Map Pack Becoming Free

The recently released Halo 2 Blastacular Map Pack is becoming free in the first weeks of July 2007. The following statement was published on Bungie.net here.

Lastly, we are finally happy to confirm that Tombstone and Desolation will be available for free download in early July. We don’t have the exact date locked but it will be around the first week. Stay tuned to Bungie.net for the final details.

Digg!

    Its just four dollars. Is it really worth all that?

    It’s not that it’s just 4 dollars. It’s that its 4 dollars you paid to play a game you already paid 50 for. That’s what is ridiculous about the whole thing. We all paid 50 dollars to play this game, and we shouldn’t have to pay 54. I’m certainly not going to buy them. It’s just a matter of principal.

    I am disgusted with the vulgar language in the first post. So what if you had to spend four dollars. They just do it to make money, it’s called the business world, where you make as much as possible. Also, don’t ever use profanity like that.

    you should note that bungie didnt want to release them with a fee, same with the latest gears map pack, but microsoft wanted to make money out of it so made them charge for them for X months

    I agree with the concensus here. It is a shady lowblow to Halo fans to have to pay 4 bucks to play two maps years after the initial release date. Its not the money its the principal. I feel that that my love for bungie and halo 2 has been greatly diminished by these events. Instead of paying four dollars to buy the maps Im just going to buy four dollars worth of my foot and shove it there ass

    Shut up everybody. You guys should just wait to get them for free. It’s not so hard. This game has been going on for years, and you guys are complaining about 4 bucks? Sad…

    Hey, fuck Bungie. They are a bunch of retarded clown- shoes. Four dollars for maps on a game that sucks? Piss off.

    These maps aren’t worth $4. I’m not going to pay another 4 just to put them on my new 360

    i think you are all overreacting just a little bit……… Bungie made the maps cost $5 in australia which is more than $4 american, but it’s called Supply and Demand, it’s the basis of the entire worldwide economy……. Just like Starbucks, they are every where.

    Tombstone is worth it. Desolation, however, is a piece of shit.

    Alright, so, I’ll admit that it’s pretty bogus that Microsoft made some of you pay for those maps. On top of that (if you didnt purchase the maps) not allowing us to play certain parts of the online multiplayer mode for not having then, ie: Team Slayer, which is pretty much the whole basis of the online multiplayer experience for Halo 2. And for you people who are angered at Bungie, don’t be, its not their fault. Leave it to Microsoft to find every way to empty the last few bucks out of every ten-year-old’s and poor colledge student’s wallet. But hey, it’s July and they’re supposed to be available for free soon, so I wouldn’t get too upset. On another note, for those of you that are “Disgusted” by this forum and have a problem with the right of free speech like that one guy who posted previously, I say to you: (ahem) “Don’t try to play parent on a forum you asshole, FUCK you, you FUCKING peice of SHIT, I hope you die in a FUCKING fire and a group of FUCKING cats eat your FUCKING charred flesh……you FUCK.”

    James said,

    u know what if i knew how to pay for these new maps i would pay the 5 bux instead of having to play team halo for a couple of weeks.. goddamit so many fu*ktards in multiplayer :@

  21. 21

    i knew it. my friends said “its four bucks, just buy them”, and i said no, they will be free eventually. luckily i waited, because unlike some people, i dont have to play halo 2 everyday, it sucks to me to be honest, which is why i wont pay. but i play sometimes, and if its free, then i download.

    /Jshadoww said,

    Yep, those maps just designed themselves, bungie didn’t put any time/people into them and they don’t deserve any money (even though micro$oft is probably taking most of it).

    Now that I’m done with that 😛 I think four bucks is fair, but I myself am not going to pay it for the simple fact that I got a 360 a few days ago, and it already is the first week in July, it would be pointless to pay for it now.

    oldtaco, what the heck kind of point are you trying to put across with that profanity at the end? I don’t have a problem with free speech but when you use vulgar language it sort of makes you sound like a 3 year old on prozac with a plunger up your anus.

    and anyway, why does $4 / £2 make a difference? i make 100 times that in a month! i’d be more concerned if it cost me another £30, then i’d be worried!
