Halo: Anniversary to include classic Headlong map

Fans will be excited to learn that one of Halo 2's most popular multiplayer arenas will be making a return in the upcoming Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary.

At this week's Tokyo Game Show, 343 Industries revealed that the beloved map is to be re-imagined in the forthcoming Xbox 360 game under the new name Breakneck, allowing players to reacquaint themselves with its skyscraper-lined terrain.

The Headlong map became famous as one of Halo 2's best-loved large-scale arenas, with its ruined city setting providing players with plenty of sniping vantage points, as well as a vast central basin for vehicular combat.

Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary is coming out this November to mark the tenth birthday of the original Xbox classic Halo: Combat Evolved, the game that launched the blockbuster franchise.

It will recreate the acclaimed campaign of the 2001 hit with modern-day technology, while its multiplayer mode will feature many of the best maps from Halo and Halo 2.
