Microsoft has announced that Lockout will join Halo 2 multiplayer maps Ascension, Coagulation, Sanctuary, and Zanzibar in being reimagined for the upcoming compilation Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Max Hoberman, president of Certain Affinity and one of Halo 2’s lead designers, described some of the changes to the three-level map: “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.” Lockout will also be one of the levels playable at the Xbox Booth (#412, #422, #432) at PAX Prime. 343 Industries will be hosting a number of events at PAX, including a signing, a panel, and a weekend-long tournament, details of which can be found below.
