(Update) We were able to get a higher quality video and we've posted it below. Also it appears that these maps were made by 343 Industries and not Bungie.
Bungie 343 Industries and Microsoft have announced three new maps for Halo: Reach. Dubbed "Defiant", this pack contains two multiplayer and one Firefight maps. The Defiant pack will bring additional achievements worth 150 points, and will be out in March for 800 Microsoft Points.
Condemned, the first map takes place aboard a UNSC Communications Space Station that has been badly beaten by the Covenant forces. This map supports 6 - 12 players and is perfect for game modes such as, Team Slayer, Team Objective, and Free-For-All.
Highlands is an old military base used for training Spartans how to fight in the wilderness. The map is perfect for large-scale war as it supports 8-16 players in Big Team Battle, Team Slayer, and Team Objective.
Unearthed is a new Firefight map set in a now-abandoned open earth titanium mine. The mine is a strategic and economic point for both Human and Covenant forces. Unearthed supports up to 4 players in both Firefight and Firefight modes.
Microsoft provided us with a video of the maps in action. Unfortunately the quality of the video is so ass that it is not even worth watching. It simply looks like you're watching a Halo 2 video from YouTube in 2005. But they gave us nice pictures!
We now have an HD video thanks to Halo Waypoint
