Halo Wars Historic Battles Game Add-On Announced

Looks like Halo Wars is getting its first map pack. Robot Entertainment has announced the Halo Wars Historic Battles Game Add-on, which contains four new maps for 800 Microsoft Points, to be released on July 21st.

The new maps are: Barrens (1v1), Blood River (1v1), Glacial Ravine (3v3), and Memorial Basin (2v2). The DLC will also feature four additional Achievements to earn. For full details, head on over to the main Halo Wars site, second news item at the time of this posting.

Once again, this is an insult to any serious gamer. Blizzard Entertainment, a developer/publisher known for its epic and genre defining real time strategy games, could release a free map or more every week for over 5 years for its games, yet Microsoft Game Studios can't release four Halo Wars maps for free? This, my friends, is milkage, and I hope none of you are considering buying this so-called "premium" content.
