Take a look at Halo 2: Anniversary’s Ascension map in this new video

Posted on July 8, 2014 AT 04:33am

During Rooster Teeth’s RTX expo this weekend, 343 Industries showed off footage of Halo 2‘s Ascension map in all its Anniversary Edition glory.

The presentation featured 10 minutes worth of footage of the map and also showed off a new energy shield that has been added to the center. There are three control panels on the map that can activate the shield, and once activated everyone inside will be impervious to damage from outside sources, but they will find themselves in close quarters with several other players inside that can hurt them.

Halo 2: Anniversary will be bundled with Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Xbox One, which contains enhanced versions of Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo 3, and Halo 4. As well as this, the collection includes the live action series Halo: Nightfall, and access to the Halo 5: Guardians beta that begins this December.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection will be available from November 11 exclusively on Xbox One.
