The update went live last week and the new maps are available to download today. I'll have a look now and see if they are there yet.

The maps are up at 2am PDT which should be in around 10 minutes our time.

The update was released last week but the ranks won't be reset untill the matchmaking update next week.

Halo 2 Blastacular Map Pack

The Halo 2 ‘Blastacular Map Pack’ is now available for download over Xbox Live. This pack is US $4.00, and it contains two maps: Tombstone and Desolation.

Since this is original Xbox content, it’s worth pointing out the following:

* You can not purchase these maps with MS points because all original Xbox games have no idea what points are. Therefore, you must have a valid credit card associated with your account in order to purchase the map pack. Please read this article which will show you how to make the changes to your account to add a credit card. All set there, but getting an error when downloading? this may help.
* Don't have a credit card? Head down to your local Visa gift card retailer (like a supermarket) and charge one up with just enough to cover the purchase.
* The maps are original Xbox content..so when you purchase them, they are tied the console they are purchased on. You can not go to another box and re-download them for free.

According to Frankie, the H2 playlists will be updated shortly to include the new mapage.

For more information on the maps (and screen shots) direct your attention to the thse two articles (one and two) on Bungie.net

I got to 33 in Big Team which isn't bad considering the amount of quitters in that playlist.

Never played that much team slayer cos I prefer bigger teams.

Bloody good multiplayer game though isn't it.:D

best.ever.multiplayer! lol

when we briefly got back into it last December there was such a bad amount of cheating and quitting and modding going on, on warlord we started a team slayer falling from the sky and the enemy had a warthog on the map firing up at us. . . . :mad:

best times we had playing was when all our mates had it on xbox and we have big custom games with friends, a lot of those mates never got a 360 though and never on halo 2, so now there is bout 4/5 us go online just enough to make a team slayer team.
