Purple Reign (and other things named after sexy 80’s music)

During the weekly update, Bungie released a little bit more information about their next map release. A hand drawn picture which looks more like a Bill Plympton cartoon than a FPS map gave a few hints to what’s in store in a future DLC release.

Some fans are calling out Bungie hoping this is a Midship rerelease. Midship was a favorite map of MLG during it’s H2 run. And who can forget some of the epic Cbn v. FB battles in Middy? But I don’t think we’re in for a remake. I think Purple Reign is going to be a Covenant themed arena map. Midship inspired, maybe. But I think Bungie’s holding off on remakes for a while. Expect Purple Reign to be a map that MLG map makers can work with.

Bungie also confirmed that a bigger Foundry-style map is on the horizon, something outdoors they’re saying. So Blood Gultch and Beaver Creek remakes could be in file shares in the near future.

Good Lord willing I’ll be heading down to Best Buy tomorrow to pick up a new TV. This week I’ll be putting my mom’s wireless network together, and then, I’ll be back in full effect.
