After last week’s Halo Mega Bloks leak, 343 Industries – the developers behind the series – have hinted that a game aimed at younger audiences could be on the horizon. Mega Bloks (essentially a hybrid of Lego and Duplo) have previously made Halo-related toy sets, so it seems natural that they’d want to release a game around the same premise. And when footage found its way on to the internet last weekend, the response was overwhelming positive. In their weekly dev blog, 343’s community manager discussed ‘Project Haggar’, as it was codenamed, saying: Who knows, with so much positive support … Read More »

If you play Halo 5 this weekend – that’s 26-27 November – you’ll be the lucky recipient of an exclusive in-game emblem, Thanks Given. The emblem, revealed on the official Halo Twitter channel, looks a bit like Foghorn Leghorn’s been crammed into a Spartan helmet. We like it. We also like the idea of poor, defenceless, tasty birds donning armour and equipping Designated Marksmen Rifles whenever the Bernard Matthews truck rolls around… Play Halo 5 this weekend to get the elusive Thanks Given turkey emblem. Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours, from us at 343! pic.twitter.com/2PtCSXjUUR — Halo (@Halo) November 24, … Read More »

Halo has and probably always will be a staple of the Xbox gaming community having been around as long as the platform itself, it’s hard to imagine an Xbox generation not having the ability to play a Halo game. Halo started as little more than a neatly packed trilogy ending in 2007 but since then it has exploded into a universe of diverse story telling in the form of novels, secret websites and even new games. Halo Wars (Released February 2009) was the first game to show us a taste of the new and improved Haloverse that was to come, no longer … Read More »

One of the things that Halo fans really love is the forge mode. It is always interesting to see what comes up when map creation is taken out of the hands of the developers. But there is a catch, this freedom can lead to all sorts of catastrophes. For this reason 343 Industries are very selective as to which maps it adds to its playlists, and lets be honest, this is a good thing. But recently 343 Industries mentioned that they will be adding a new map to their Slayer playlists at the start of the August season. This map … Read More »
