So, that's it. The promised run of free DLC for Halo 5 has ended, with the incredible Firefight update. Since Halo 5: Guardians released back in October 2015, free DLC has delivered fifteen new maps, Forge mode, new game modes, Firefight, and a ton of customisation options, REQs and fancy-pants armour. It's a significant list, and not one bit is locked away behind a pay-wall, so every map is available to every member of the community. No matchmaking headaches when partying up with friends with different DLC availability. Except, it's not yet over... not quite. "...we’ve seen many inquiries about ... Read More »

Warzone Firefight is the eighth free update for Halo 5: Guardians, and sees the return of the legendary co-op Player Versus Enemies game style that debuted with Halo ODST, and spawned many a Horde Mode in its wake. Warzone Firefight represents the biggest release of new content since Halo 5: Guardians launched towards the end of 2015 and, if April's beta for the new mode is anything to go by, Firefight will be bigger and better than ever before. This latest release is so much more than just one new mode, though. As we covered last weekend, Warzone Firefight will ... Read More »
Warzone Firefight is the next - and much anticipated - update for Halo 5: Guardians, bringing back the much-loved co-operative mode that debuted in Halo: ODST. Although still a few weeks away, April's Beta showed the mode was in good shape and will likely be a fantastic addition to one of Xbox One's best multiplayer titles. The update will bring the Firefight mode, some improvements and additions to Forge, a refresh of the main Warzone mode that we covered a couple of weeks ago, and a handful of new maps. In fact, this week's Community Update from 343 Industries explains that a ... Read More »
Firefight is the legendary Halo co-op mode that pits a band of Spartans against waves of increasingly tough enemies. What began life as a small mode in Halo: ODST soon spawned a thousand imitators, practically inventing the horde mode found in many a shooter since. Firefight was sadly missing from Halo 5: Guardians at launch. The good news, however, is that it's coming to the latest Halo instalment. The better news is that it's available in Beta form right now. https://twitter.com/Halo/status/720659988746612740 Firefight in its Halo 5 guise is fully embedded into Warzone, meaning you can make use of all that lovely, lovely REQ ...
