The Master Chief Collection Remakes Halo 2's Coagulation Map

The beloved Halo map, Blood Gulch, is one of the most iconic multiplayer arenas in the entire series. Bungie remade the map in Halo 2 as Coagulation, and 343 Industries is partnering with Certain Affinity to give the wonderful setting yet another update with Halo: The Master Chief Collection's Bloodline.[Excrept]

The basic layout remains mostly the same with one core addition, a new base sits in the middle of the rocky canyon, flanked on either end by two other bunkers. The remade version includes some cool changes though, like UNSC Hornets from Halo 3 and EMPs to help take out pesky Warthogs. Check out more screenshots of Bloodline in the media gallery below.

Bloodline joins the likes of popular Halo2 favorites like Ascension, Lockout, Sanctuary, Warlock, and Zanzibar.

MX Vs. ATV: Supercross Revives Dormant Motocross Racing Series

When we spoke with Nordic Games at Gamescom 2013, business and product director Reinhard Police told us that his company would bring back MX vs. ATV. It was one of the core franchises that motivated Nordic's acquisition of many of THQ’s game properties in April 2013. Today, fans of the series finally see the fruits of that deal with the release of MX vs. ATV: Supercross for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The sixth game in the popular dirt bike racing series, Supercross, features a customizable selection of vehicles from 80 motorcross companies and 60 pro riders, both old and new, to ride them with. In career mode, players can race in five different series on the game’s seventeen different tracks.
