Major Nelson has revealed that Halo 3's final map pack will release on April 9th and cost 800 Microsoft Points. The story also reminded Gears of War owners that the new map GoW2 map pack is coming out on March 31st for 800 Microsoft Points. To read the full Major Nelson story, click here.

Bungie.net has also posted pretty damn awesome stats, too. Just look at these:


* Halo 3 is still averaging close to 900,000 unique players per day on Xbox LIVE, it routinely pushes over a million on weekends, and it's actually trending upwards.
* The average Halo 3 player session clocks in at roughly one hour per play.
* The Legendary Map Pack, released just about one year ago, still averages over five thousand downloads per day!
* Both the Heroic Map Pack and Cold Storage are holding strong at over 11,000 downloads per day.
* Halo 3 charted fifteenth overall in the NPD sales chart for February 2009, again, nearly twenty months out from our retail launch.
* You're closing in on Ten BILLION Covenant Campaign kills all told (just under 9.8 billion currently).
* Total Halo 3 Players Smashed by the Banhammer, for any reason, ever: 57,854.
* Players rocking the New Hayabusa (aka Recon Armor): 452.


To see bungie.net's whole post, click here. I a little tidbit here, too. They are apparently HONORED that we are still playing as much Halo 3 as we are.

I love you too, Bungie.
