Halo 5: Warzone Firefight Update Details Released

By | 4 months ago 

343 Industries unveils brand new information regarding the upcoming Warzone Firefight update for Halo 5: Guardians, which promises to be the biggest update yet.

The free updates for Halo 5: Guardians just keep rolling in. Mere weeks ago, gamers were treated to the Hog Wild expansion, which brought it with some Warthog-themed content. Although 343 Industries then promised a break from the free updates for the game, this was down to a very good reason: the next update for the title was going to be the biggest one yet. Now, the developer is ready to shed light on exactly what it has in store for players.

Over at Halo Waypoint, 343 Industries went into a fair amount of detail regarding the next Halo 5 update. Known by the name Warzone Firefight, it’s clear that this new update is going to be chock full of new content for players. What’s more, this recent post is merely a teaser for what is going to be made available, with plenty of details yet to be announced.

“The Warzone Firefight release draws nearer, and various teams across the studio are finishing up the work required to get this sucker out the door and into your eagerly awaiting hands,” read the post. 343 Industries reiterated the expansion’s role as the biggest free update yet, and explained that players will be able to find the new and improved Warzone Firefight PvE mode on a variety of maps, as well as the Warzone Boss Refresh, and plenty of new vehicles, armor, weapons, and more.

The post gave fans a first look at Prospect, a new Warzone Assault variant map set on the glassed human colony of Meridian. The map drops players immediately into a mining facility, and tasks them with attacking the defenders that lie inside. The level includes plenty of cover for players to try and find the flank paths hidden around the map, and also promises “more options than ever before” when it comes to defending the Core. 343 Industries has tried to “evolve the nature of the Warzone Assault game type” with the map, and it will be intriguing to see how this works in practice.

Aside from this, however, it was also confirmed that the Halo 5 Forge team is bringing a brand new Forge canvas to the mode. Dubbed Tidal, this coastline canvas certainly looks impressive based on the screenshots available in the post. The game’s Forge mode, of course, is now available on PC.

Halo fans may be in for the main series also moving to further shores with its next iteration. Although both 343 Industries and Microsoft have insisted that Halo 5 is not going to be released for Windows 10, there have been suggestions that Halo 6 will in fact be released for PC when the game is ready to launch. Until that point, however, it seems as though Halo 5 players will still have plenty of content to look forward to.

Halo 5: Guardians is out now for Xbox One.
