front-page-halo-news.png

If you haven't guessed it, the Warzone Firefight update is now live and is a rather hefty one sitting at about 7GB. Also for those of you with friends that don't own the game yet, get them to download Halo 5 for free! From today through to July 5th. Details on the contents of this update and information on the "Free Play Days" can be found in an in depth post I made on the matter. This also includes the full REQ list for this update.


On June 28th we were also treated to an exclusive look into new features added to Halo 5's forge in this update, as well as a look at everything else included in the update. You can find the official recording of the stream in it's entirety below;


If you're just interested in watching the forge content you can skip straight to it with this handy dandy link. Spoiler alert, increased budget, cool new items and freaking ziplines!

Before I delve more into 'cool forge stuff' I'd like to point out that you can find the patch notes for this update here. If you're just interested in taking a look at a list of newly added items for the forge sandbox however, you can find this information in the spoiler box below.
