Just like many had suspected already, popular Halo 2 map Lockout has been confirmed today as one of the six re-imagined maps that will be featured in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
343 Industries has also released a few screenshots showing the improvements of this re-imagined version of the map. Lockout is the fifth of six maps to receive this treatment, joining the previously confirmed Ascension, Coagulation, Sanctuary, and Zanzibar.
"Lockout was hands-down the most popular small arena-style map in Halo 2," said Max Hoberman, Halo 2's lead designer. "We're thrilled to be bringing this fan-favourite 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 launches on the 11th of November in North America and on the 14th of November in Europe.
