Freeverse just sent us the heads up that the new DLC entitled – Jjaro Map Pack will be hitting this Wednesday for 250 Microsoft Points. Slated for a June 18th release, this content pack will extend the Marathon gaming experience on the Xbox 360 gaming console with new maps, game modes, and textures.
The Jjaro Map Pack for Marathon: Durandal will include 12 classic multiplayer levels previously seen in Bungieâ€™s Marathon and Marathon Infinity. Nostalgic players will recall the names of these classic maps: Thrud, Vulcan, King of Pain, Spiral Insanity, Dead Fields, Morphine, La Cosa Nostra, Mars Needs Women, â€˜Fugee Camp, What Goes Up Must Come Down, Arena, and Spline.

Each of these downloadable maps will support new gametypes previously unseen in their original release on the Macintosh platform, including King of the Hill, Kill the Man with the Ball, and Tag.
Also included in this downloadable content pack is the â€œJjaroâ€ collection, a texture and design set previously introduced in Marathon Infinity. In addition to these exciting new environments in which to play, players will also be able to unlock two new achievements:
- Thing What Kicks – Kill a Juggernaut in Survival and live to tell the tale. 20 points.
- King Pfhor a Day – Outscore all other players (at least 3) combined in a King of the Hill or Kill the Man with the Ball match. 10 points.
If you want to earn the new achievements, you’ll have to get the new map pack. Let us know if you buy the map pack this Wednesday, as some of us will be playing it Wednesday night.
