Halo 4 gamers can now download Forge Island, a map that was revealed during PAX East last week. It spans three modifiable areas and features islands called “Great Anvils.” Gamers can download the map via the Halo 4 in-game store or through the Xbox Live marketplace.

Gears of War: Judgment gamers can now pick up the Execution multiplayer mode and a new multiplayer map called Haven, which will be free only for a limited time. This content is sponsored by men’s magazine Maxim.

On top of the new mode and map, special playlists for Haven and Execution will be available, offering up 200 percent experience boosts. Those who own the $20 Gears of War: Judgment VIP Season Pass will receive a 300 percent experience boost in their own VIP playlist.
