Introducing… Shrine

We’ve brought you Last Resort. We’ve brought you Epitaph. Now, we bring you Shrine. The latest and by the sounds of things, greatest Halo 3 multiplayer map around.

Apparently the largest map to ever feature in a Halo game with emphasis relying heavily on vehicular play, Shrine is freaking huge.

There’s little more to go on at this point and we’ve yet to see any footage of Shrine in action. What we do know though, is it’s huge, it’s where the Brute Choppers have been seen hanging out, and you’re going to want a vehicle to get around over it’s masses of sand dunes. Oh, and it looks as though we’ll be seeing some totally vehicle based gametypes played out here.

A spiritual update to Burial Mounds? There’s certainly similarities, but we really don’t think so.

So for the meantime, pour over these new screenshots, and tell us what you think. If Bungie are excited about this map, we sure as hell should be.


Shrine is now known as Sandtrap.

I read on IGNthat Shrine was the length of Valhall but 4 times as wide, so that gives us an indication of its size.
I also read somewhere that those towers work like the turrets in snowbound, so they shoot you if you stray too far.

what’s that thing above the red guy’s head (in the screen shot on this page)? Is that shrapnel? It looks like a piece of a brute chopper or a building or something but the dude is flying from a destroyed Warthog. I can’t figure it out.

I believe that floating thing in the background is the UNSC Cruiser that was mentioned in the Gamepro preview.
I can’t wait until footage of Shrine is ‘accidentally’ leaked.
This map is gonna be awesome!

This map looks great. I bet you theyll make more larger maps like this one. like i said before
I think a tight map would be a map with multiple
islands. where there two big islands on each side of the map for teams to spawn and many smaller islands
in between them, and you would have to use boats or some type of water vehicle to get around . it would work well with territories, king of the hill, and many other game types. It would be nice for btb. i have a good feeling theyll bring in water vehicles because they already have land and air types, so why not take the next step and do water vehicles.

If you look around the site you can find a complete list of multiplayer maps.
Not all of these maps have been revealed, and If you think back to the multiplayer vidoc, you’ll remember that there are maps in the vidoc that haven’t been revealed.

Try using the names to identify each of the maps!

Remember in the Gamepro mag, the work in progress map- I believe that is the map Chill.
