The first of Halo 3's new downloadable maps reavealed

Bungie has reavealed some screenshots of the first map in their downloadable Legendary Map Pack. Called "Ghost Town", the map is designed for 4v4 fights, and helps provide a nice range for both melee and long range attack styles.

Vi DeLeon goes on to explain how this map fits into the Halo universe:
"Ghost Town is the fragmented ruins of a small 24th century water purification complex that geographically lies just North and West of the jungle foothills hydroelectric facility from the Sierra 117 mission. The well-protected facility built into a shallow ravine was once home to the Global Water Campaign, where the still somewhat-pure Kilimanjaro meltwater was transported via pipelines from the river and directed to this small outpost where it became further purified, and then transported via GWC trans-African pipelines along the Tsavo Highway for distribution throughout the entire continent."
You can go to the source to see some of Bungie's offical first screenshots. The Legendary Map Pack is set to come out this spring.
