The official Mythic Map Pack Logo.
The Mythic Map Packs are a two-packaged map collection created by Bungie for Halo 3. They were released on April 9, 2009 and February 2, 2010 for 800 Microsoft points.
The icon of the Mythic Map Packs is an alternate version of the difficulty icon known as Mythic difficulty. The knives are replaced with Battle Rifles and the Mythic Skull replaces the Elite Skull. Keep in mind that Mythic has been known as a non-canon difficulty above Legendary, though Bungie has mentioned it several times on Bungie.net.
The first Mythic Map Pack is a Halo 3 DLC map pack, which includes three multiplayer maps, Assembly, Orbital, and Sandbox. It was released with the launch of Halo Wars, but it is only included with the Limited Edition of the game. The Limited Edition was released in Asia and Australia on February 26th, in Europe and Africa on February 27th, and in the Americas on March 3rd with the Limited Edition version of Halo Wars. On March 23, 2009 Microsoft confirmed April 9, 2009 as the release date for Mythic as Downloadable Content (DLC) on Xbox Live for 800 Microsoft points.
