Halogon Community Playdate for December 16, 2012: New Toys For Crimson Edition

This week, we were blessed with new maps. In light of this STUNNING development, we're going to have a rather casual playdate to take advantage of these new maps and play around with them. We may also use this playdate as an excuse to boost achievements, but don't quote me on that. As usual, the playdate will commence on Sunday at 2:00 PM CST/8:00 GMT. To play with us, you'll need to:

  • Download the newly-released Crimson Map Pack
  • Send a friend request to the Halogon gamertag at GT: PolygonHalo

Don't have the map pack? Well, do read this lovely bit of information from this week's Halo Bulletin:

"Crimson Map Pack

The Crimson Map Pack, along with its relevant Matchmaking playlist, released on Monday. There was a delay with getting this content to War Games Map Pass and LE owners that was resolved the same day at approximately 1PM PT. There were also some initial complications with the distribution of the "14 day, Buy and Play" reward tokens, so we decided to provide the additional reward of complimentary access to the Crimson Map Pack, for a limited time, as a "thank you" to the players who contributed to the success of the Halo 4 launch. Making lemonade, if you will.

This complimentary access to the Crimson Map Pack will continue through Tuesday, December 18 at 9am UTC/GMT). At that time, the complimentary limited access will close, and "14 Day – Buy and Play" program participants will no longer be able to access the content for online play (please note anybody who has already purchased the Crimson Map Pack or owns the Halo 4 Map Pass or Limited Edition will not be impacted and will continue to have access to the content after the complimentary access period ends). If you would like to continue playing on them after that date, the Crimson Map Pack can be purchased through the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 800 MS Points, or via purchase of the War Games Map Pass."


Yes, you too can have temporary access to the Crimson Map Pack if you received your specialization unlock code! So use it and download it! Once you've done so, again, send your friend requests to GT: PolygonHalo and show up at the designated time and we'll see if we can't get you in! Did I mention achievement boosting? I may have mentioned achievement boosting. Hope to see you there!
