1. Access the email account that you used to register your XBL handle.
2. Find the Specialization email that they sent out which helps unlock the rest of the specializations beyond the two that the game started with.
3. Download (or if you have already downloaded it, redownload it via Account Management).
4. IMPORTANT - Access the XBox Live Marketplace via the Halo 4 MAIN MENU. NOT by the XBL marketplace on the dashboard. That way it won't work. You have to access it via the XBL option at the H4 Main menu.
5. Crimson map pack should appear with a "*" right beside it. Click it and then click download below it...download should start (size is around 550 mb). No credit amount should appear beside it, it should say 0G
From what I'm reading online there's no way they can ban you for it...it's a **** up on their part and they pay the price of it. I heard that for the other people that have already bought it or paid the seasons pass for the maps they will be releasing a fourth map pack in the future.
I honestly have no sympathy for XBL/343. To release a new map pack so soon after the release date of the game? Kiss my ass I paid full price for this game when it came out in my eyes this map pack should have been included. Basically what happened was they didn't realize that the Specialization code they sent out also included the download for the Crimson Map Pack...so they really screwed up.
Note on Specialization Email:
Here are a few reasons why your inbox may still be empty.
- Emails were sent to both opt-in and opt-out accounts.
- If you did not play Halo prior to November 20 at 11:59 PM EST, you would have not received the email.
<-- i didn't
- If you are registered with Xbox LIVE in Europe, the Middle East or Africa, you would have not received the email. As noted on the original offer, these regions were not part of the Specializations offer as Specializations were offered as a pre-order offer, not a post-launch offer.
Sounds like it is worth a try even without the specialization email... thanks anyway Bondon
