Check out Halo 2′s Lockout map remake for Halo: The Master Chief Collection

Microsoft and 343 Industries have offered a look at the latest Halo 2 map to receive the remaster treatment for Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Lockout.

“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,” Microsoft’s description reads. “Get ready to return to this classic battleground as Lockdown, part of the Halo 2 Anniversary multiplayer experience in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.”

Lockout is the fifth of six planned remastered maps for Halo 2 Anniversary, joining Sanctuary, Zanzibar, Coagulation, and Ascension.

“Lockout was hands-down the most popular small arena-style map in Halo 2,” 343′s Max Hoberman said. ”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.”

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is set to launch exclusively for Xbox One on November 11.
