Halo: Reach – Noble Map Pack


Content: Halo: Reach – Noble Map Pack
Price: 800 Microsoft Points
Availability: All Xbox LIVE regions
Dash Text: The fight for humanity rages on a galactic scale. From a frozen xeno-archaeology site harboring secrets millennia old to an orbital anchor defending the stars high above planet Reach – and to mysterious places far, far beyond – Bungie’s Noble Map Pack injects three new explosive environments into the multiplayer battlefield, each designed to reinforce all of Halo: Reach’s vital warfronts, from small scale engagements to massive Invasion battlegrounds.


Purchase the Noble Map Pack and add it to your Xbox 360 download queue


The fine folks at Bungie have posted HD videos of each map if you want to look before you buy 


You’ll need a copy of Halo: Reach to enjoy this map pack

    Already downloaded, but had to go to work before playing.
    See this, Call of Duty? Price your map packs for $20, and I stop playing Modern Warfare 2 and don’t even bother buying Black Ops.
    Price your map packs for $10 & include 250 gamerscore, and I buy it the day it comes out before breakfast.
    It is called a “sweet spot” by the sales guys, so I’m told. Might want to learn more about that.


    Tempted but I think I’ll give this a miss and stick with black ops and nfs

  • YaoIsGod

    MW2 map packs sold millions, so they must have done something right.

  • Wiizpig

    Will buy eventually.

  • Spargo CXVII

    Got to work for now, I’ll buy later today for sure though.

  • Skier7667

    Also at work – but this seems to be correctly priced at intro time for the 3 map that are included. I watched the intro videos and was very excited!

    @ YaoIsGod

    That, or millions of people did something wrong

    @ Aqualung812
    You still paty more for each Halo map then a CoD map, hence you really loose money.
    But since you don’t see it (obviously) and it takes some maths to know it, you’re happy :P

    Got Noble mappack anyhow, great one :)
    To bad brakpoint proved to be tyhe campers dream, invis + DMR = spawnkill and dominate the whole map from your own spawn :(

  • Aqualung812

    While we’re correcting my post, the CoD packs were $15, not $20. :)

    And yes, it had 5 maps, but two were CoD 4 maps that were just updated. Both DLC offered 3 NEW maps.

    Point being, Bungie did more work (IMHO) in these three maps than Infinity Ward did on their five, but asked $5 less and added 250 gamerscore. That makes me motivated to continue to support them, because I feel the deal is fair. Sure, I could *afford* $5, but I feel like I’m being screwed at that level.

    I think calling the whole thing a “stimulus pack” at the same time, like it was some special deal, skewed my perception of it as well. As I recall, Activision also had fired the guys that created Infinity Ward around the same time so they didn’t have to pay them for the blockbuster that they delivered. I think I just had a pretty sour opinion of the whole franchise at that time. It is a great game, though!

    Sorry for all of the off-topic rambling, I just thought I would clear up my earlier post!
    In other words, don’t go hating, CoD people. I like both games, I just hate Activision!

    While we are talking about what works for the consumer…when is someone ever going to STOP LISTING EVERY ROCK BAND/ LIPS/ GH track in the new release? I go to look for Noble Map Pack on, and see 7 Rock Band Tracks, a Dj Hero pack, and 3 Lips songs…no Halo. Go to “most popular today”, and NO HALO! No, it’s not that hard to check this site or find it through some other means, but come on, this is Halo DLC, and should be jumping out, not buried beneath weekly releases that are also in the in-game store, not to mention the special “game” store each has.

    Since Joining Family gold
    Everyone apart from the primary has been turned into a child account

    Are people high up in Microsoft aware of this

    Its driving me crazy

    Warnings pop up on the console i am signed into that not everyone will be able to do eveything
    when an adult account signs in on the same console

    I have a Promote Account button In Account Management
    that warns

    Promote your current Xbox Live child account
    to an adult account

    If you’re a member of a Gold Family, Pack your Gold membership will be removed.

    I hope there is a fix for this soon
    Turning adult account into child on joining family gold plain sucks

  • r3dreck

    Sold the thrill is gone… COD:BO is ok, just waiting till the 21st for the Vet pack then back to biz.

  • KP ScuzzyBunny

    Is there a fix for those of us with family Gold to show up as GOLD again? On my console it still has me Gold with however many years, but here I always show up Silver!! As for the Child account stuff, I think you have to set it when you first create it. I get the message that some of my settings will supercede theirs, but have never had a problem with anyone not being an “adult” account.

    Cool map pack!

    What’s the rumors I hear about a Halo CE remake? They better NOT be true.
    We don’t need to touch the HOLY classics only to break cannon some more.
    Make something new for the Halo universe, like this map pack :D.


    I’d like to have Halo 1 and 2 HD remakes. Even if they up-res the graphics, add Live support and achievements I’d be happy.

  • Shonk

    My account was adult before joining the family pack

    I have had this account since 2005
    then as soon as i joined the family pack
    im a child and so are the other members that joined

  • Thief000

    I don’t mind an HD-ified game. Just not a remake that changes the fundamentals. There is a difference.

  • chiruno99

    But I’m already bored with Halo, CoD and other FPSes until Bulletstorm, or if I boot up Doom on my computer.

  • a1984darkboy

    Hay Shonk, which issue of OXM did you get those TF2 gamerpics?

    Also, man, I keep think MS is gonna have another deal and that this map pack is gonna be part of it. Seriously, I wish it was included in the current promotion of buy two of the listed games and get 400 MS points back.

  • Tiptoe Turtle

    Hey, I have a great idea how about you fix your crappy online play and networking issues before releasing new maps bungie. Thanks so much!!!!

  • Shonk


    Im not sure i have about 30 oxm disc’s

  • TSA jpicard

    What networking issues are you even talking about =S

    I rarely have a problem with lag or any networking issues with halo reach

    check your connection man

    also AMAZING map-pack really worth the 800 points

    alot of work went into these maps and are heaps of fun to play multi CTF of tempest is a win in my book
