Take A Look At Halo 2 Anniversary's Updated "Lockout" Map In Action

Map includes new dynamic element that lets you shoot out ice blocks to kill enemies from above.

Following yesterday's news that fan-favorite Halo 2 map Lockout will appear in Halo 2 Anniversary within the Halo: Master Chief Collection, developer 343 Industries has now released a gameplay video showing the map in action. Lockout joins previously confirmed Halo 2 remastered maps Ascension, Coagulation, Zanzibar, and Sanctuary.

Lockout for Halo 2 Anniversary has been updated with a number of new features, first of which is more cover at the "elbow," the walkway connecting the grav lift to the sniper tower. The new version of Lockout also includes a dynamic element that lets you shoot out snow/ice from the sniper perch to keep people from camping there.

If you're heading to PAX Prime this weekend (the show starts today!), you'll get to play the new Lockout map at Microsoft's booth on the show floor. Looking for more Lockout coverage? We have more details here, as well as side-by-side comparison shots that show off just how much work 343 Industries and Certain Affinity put into updating the new map.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection launches exclusively for Xbox One on November 11. It includes remastered versions of Halo 1-4, access to upcoming digital show Halo: Nightfall, and also gets you into the Halo 5: Guardians beta.

Man I love how the core gameplay is identical to Halo 2s. This is gonna be fucking epic and hopefully Halo 5 will go back to its roots and have gameplay thats like the original trilogy too.

I see they've still not figured out how to properly map aiming to a joystick without aim assist. Classic.
 They need to slow the game down too because Halo really wasn't meant to be played at 60 fps.

The headshots with the sniper in Halo 2 have always been completely satisfying.

Halo 2 brings back fond memories of college and all-nighters...as well as xbox live matches. It looks great, but I don't think it's enough to get me to buy an xb1.

Playstation fanboys say "Halo sucks" but they praise Destiny, well guess what Destiny is Halo with a little MMO sprinkled in for good measure

@LiquidGold @gottago42 Yeah Playstation fans are really stupid and have no idea what Halo is I mean it's not like it's been milked to death on MS consoles or anything so it's top secret as to what Halo actually is. Thank God you're here to point it out.

@LiquidGold @blueinheaven @gottago42 The point, genius, is Playstation owners know exactly what Halo is. We don't need you or anyone else to tell us. Was it really beyond your tiny intellect to work that one out?


You're one of these kids who can only afford one console and hate the one you can't afford. I kind of feel sorry for you. You're not just stupid, you're broke. Life sucks, right?

@LiquidGold @blueinheaven @gottago42 Sony fanboy? PS1, Xbox, PS2, 360, PS3 (played most multiplats on 360 because I could install them to hard drive), PS4 and it would have been X1 too but there just aren't any good exclusives yet and every multiplat is better on PS4 so sorry massive fail on 'sony fanboy'.


I also have a high end PC does that make me a Microsoft fanboy?


You on the other hand can see only Xbox and nothing but Xbox there really is nothing more pathetic than someone who is a 'fan' of a games console and defends it against all-comers as if MS give a flying f*** about you and your supposed loyalty on the internet.


If you really are as you claim an adult I genuinely feel sorry for you.

@blueinheaven Another baseless comment from you ROLF.  Try not to sound too much like a fanboy to start with "Playstation owners know exactly what Halo is. We don't need you or anyone else to tell us." Makes you sound like a sony lover from the start and then you went on about MS milking games. Ya doesn't make you look to good does it KID especially with your 10yr old insults towards me LMFAO.


But then you still missed my point entirely. PS fanboys have been calling Halo & Bungie crap for years and now you have an always online Halo, as thats what Destiny basically is and love it LOL - DO YOU GET MY POINT NOW, most likely not.


Also you seem so one track minded , why wouldn't I own any other console LOL, do you know what I've bought over the years?  Its alot more consoles than that silly little list I can tell you that, not that I asked for a list crap you've bought but thanks anyway son. Now run along little man you've got nothing on me.  Never have never will ;)

@LiquidGold @blueinheaven I feel embarrassed. I've been trying to have an intelligent conversation with a child. Yes I believe you were Rolling On Laughing Floor (ROLF? you dunce) I listed the consoles I've bought to demonstrate I love great games and don't care where they come from.


Destiny is dead to me I couldn't give a f*** about it does that make me a Sony fanboy or an MS hater or just someone who has no interest in it at all? You have forgotten how this conversation started. You claimed 'sony fanboys' were hating on Halo and now love Destiny which is Halo.


It's possible for people to buy both consoles and love some games from both. There is no dividing line. Do you get that Xbox fanboy? Some of us are GAMES fanboys and buy all systems so we can play all the games.


Muse on that while you sit in your playpen laughing at 'fanboys'. You are the only loser here. Choose Sony you miss out on Halo. Choose MS you miss out on Uncharted. Choose both you get EVERYTHING. 


People who love games 1. 'Fanboys' 0.

@blueinheaven  

LOL obviously it was a typo but you been the grammar clown you are, would point it out and then be smug about it.  That makes YOU, look like a bigger fool than me making the simple error in the first place.


You were trying to have an intelligent conversation, does this look intelligent to you.


"You're one of these kids who can only afford one console and hate the one you can't afford. I kind of feel sorry for you. You're not just stupid, you're broke. Life sucks, right?" 


Should I post more of your so called intellect?


I've made you look like an fool with each reply without any baseless insults, also the fact you're calling me a fanboy as well, when in my previous post it states I also own multiple consoles. 


Intelligent much? I think not. So really the only real loser at hand is YOU.

Now off you kid, I'm beyond you. Up your game son you still have and never will have anything on me. ROLF ;)

And yes that one was on purpose just incase you missed the joke.

@blueinheaven @LiquidGold @gottago42 LOL name calling  now, a sign of a true fool, My account alone is probably half your age KID. The fact  sony fanboys like you were calling Halo garbage but then praise destiny, just shows what you knew about Halo in the first place. Now run along back to milkville as I can't talk much longer, my so called broke ass needs to find a new cardboard home.

@gottago42 They're too stupid to realise that, also they've been saying that Bungie is sh!t for past ten years but now praise them and Destiny LOL. The most backwards hypocritical fans out there.

@LiquidGold I think he is also blue in the b.alls, which makes him feel like he is in heaven for some reason.   He needs to get out more.  I don't see where he even has time for p.orn if he actually owns all those consoles.  Probably paid 4000 more than his supposed high end PC is worth.  I was actually considering a PS4, but if I have to deal with mooks like this...count me out.
