343 Industries has announced that Lockout is the fifth map to be remastered for the Halo 2 Anniversary Edition as part of the larger Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
"As one of the flagship Halo 2 tournament maps, Lockout was home to a wide host of game types, including Free-for-All, Oddball, King of the Hill, 1-Flag CTF, and of course, Team Slayer," a Microsoft representative explained to GameSpot.
