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.
