The Mythic Map Packs are a two-packaged map collection created by Bungie for Halo 3. They were released on April 9, 2009 and February 2, 2010 for 800 Microsoft Points.[1][2]

Summary[edit]

The icon of the Mythic Map Packs is an alternate version of the difficulty icon known as Mythic. The knives are replaced with Battle Rifles and the Mythic Skull replaces the Elite Skull. It is to be noted that Mythic has been known as a non-existent difficulty above Legendary, though Bungie has mentioned it several times on Bungie.net.

Set One[edit]

The first part of the Mythic Map Pack is a Halo 3 DLC map pack, which includes three multiplayer maps, Assembly, Orbital, and Sandbox. It was released with the launch of Halo Wars, but it is only included with the Limited Edition of the game. The Limited Edition was released in Asia and Australia on February 26, in Europe and Africa on February 27, and in the Americas, on March 3, with the Limited Edition version of Halo Wars.[3] On March 23, 2009 Microsoft confirmed April 9, 2009 as the release date for Mythic as Downloadable Content (DLC) on Xbox Live for 800 Microsoft Points. And in July 2010 the price dropped to 400 Microsoft Points[4]

Set Two[edit]

The second Mythic Map Pack, titled "Mythic II Map Pack", was included on Halo 3: Mythic, the multiplayer disc included with Halo 3: ODST, which was released on September 22, 2009. The second package includes the maps Longshore, Heretic and Citadel. The second map pack was made available as a DLC by February 2, 2010.[2]
