IGN just got the scoop on a new multplayer map for Halo 3 named ‘Narrows’.

Here’s a desciption of the new battleground straight from Bungie’s Multiplayer Designer – Lars Bakken:

“It’s a Forerunner structure. It’s embedded in this cliff wall and it’s a bridge. Imagine the – if you’re familiar with Halo 1 – imagine the bridge from Assault on the Control Room, expanded, and made for multiplayer, so it’s got multiple levels and each side has kind of a dug in section, and it’s mirrored so on one side of each of the bases there’s actually a Man Cannon, and if both sides take it at the same time they’ll actually meet in mid-air, which is pretty cool.

“There are multiple areas that you fight over; there are some power weapons in the centre of the map. I’ll give you guys a heads-up right now – there’s actually a rocket launcher on top and a shotgun on the lowest level dead centre of the map, so when you guys play it tonight you’ll have a little extra edge on the competition…”

More info as it comes, but for now – check out the images of ‘Narrows’ via the links below.

What do you guys think? I gotta say immediately that it makes me think of Gephyrophobia from Halo PC.

Gotta say this is really starting to look like a true next-gen Halo. Even for a multiplayer map, it’s gorgeous.

As for the map itself, I always thought while playing Halo CE that one of the bridges would be a good map.

in the third picture, it shows the shotgun on a small energy bridge. If you can turn the bridge off somehow, it would be funny to watch someone or the gun fall down. Or maybe you get to turn it on yourself, High Ground gate style.

Its forerunner machinery.

dude “Assault on the Control Room” was by far my favorite Halo:CE level, for sure. I also like “Two Betrayals” (same map, basically). It doesn’t seem entirely like those bridges, but it definitely has the feel of the original game in the screenshots.

yeah, AotCR kicked ass! especially the gold elite with the sword at the end on heroic/legendary.
H3 is gonna kick ps3’s lazy ass.

From what I’ve seen this is the second best map.
