Lockout, a fan favorite multiplayer map from Halo 2, has been given the remastered treatment for Halo Master Chief Collection, according to an announcement on Xbox.com.

Max Hoberman, the lead designer on Halo 2 and now the president of Certain Affinity, a collaborator on multiplayer for the Halo Master Chief Collection, writes on Xbox.com:

"We're thrilled to be bringing this fan-favorite back, and are paying close attention to the details and subtleties that made the original great while also making a couple of very careful, very calculated enhancements. Most prominent among these are a bit of cover added to the ‘Elbow,' the long walkway connecting the grav lift to the sniper tower, and a dynamic element that should help counter an entrenched group of enemies. Of course this can be disabled in Forge for players who want a near-match of the original experience."

Other remastered maps announced include Zanzibar, Sanctuary, Coagulation and Ascension. Halo 2 Anniversary Edition, part of the Halo Master Chief Collection, will also include all of the original multiplayer maps from Halo 2.
