343 Industries have confirmed a final multiplayer map entry to Halo 2: Anniversary Edition, i.e. a classic Lockout. Lockout is one of the fan favorite map, no doubt in that. With this final entry, total maps count have reached to 5 which include Ascension, Zanzibar, Coagulation, Sanctuary and now a Lockout.
While revealing Lockout map for Halo 2: Anniversary Microsoft said
As one of the flagship Halo 2 tournament maps, Lockout was home to a wide host of game types, including Free-for-All, Oddball, King of the Hill, 1-Flag CTF, and of course, Team Slayer. Get ready to return to this classic battleground as Lockdown, part of the Halo 2 Anniversary multiplayer experience in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Max Hoberman, Halo 2’s original design lead and working on these remakes with Certain Affinity added:
Lockout was hands-down the most popular small arena-style map in Halo 2. We’re thrilled to be bringing this fan-favourite 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.
