Wasn't this an update of a Halo 2 map as well? Coagulation? Halo 2 had some of the best maps ever!!

Bring back Sidewinder!

Also Boarding Action with jetpacks would be very interesting....

I would love to see some remakes of the PC exclusive maps from CE; Death Island and Infinity in particular.

No, Coagulation was a remake of Blood Gulch. Hemorrhage on Reach is also a remake of Blood Gulch/Coagulation. Valhalla was described by Bungie as a spiritual successor to Blood Gulch. It's a similiar map, two bases at opposite ends of a canyon but it's quite different, most notably because of the big hill in the middle. Controlling the hill should be a priority if you want to control the map.

I loved this map and spent hours playing it, both in Halo 3 and the Halo 3 beta. I still have a video saved on my Xbox of the time me and my mates won a team snipers game on this map 50-0, we also created a race track on Valhalla. I can't wait to play the Halo 4 version.

I would also love to see a remake of Sidewinder. They did attempt a remake in Halo 3 but it didn't really do it justice. I'd like them to remake Chiron TL-34, that map was crazy but I guess nowadays there's too many campers who would just sit on the other side of the teleporters with a shotgun or something.

So basically yes then?

I've just watched the multiplayer video- the quick mech teabag clip at the end made me laugh- wasn't expecting that.

Also: I love this friggin' map!

Looking back at your earlier post, I see you said,"Wan't this an update of Coagulation?". I read it as remake for some reason, my bad. :oops: So basically yes it is an update of Blood Gulch/Coag, but not a straight up remake. :)
