'Halo 5: Guardians' Latest News, Release Date & Update: 343 Industries to Release More DLC Featuring Content Browser
Since the arrival of "Halo 5: Guardians" back in October of last year, developer 343 Industries has released eight DLC updates, with the last one released this June, titled "Warzone Firefight." The update included Warzone Firefight game modes, new maps and REQs, new Forge canvas, and a Campaign Score Attack. While this was touted as the last DLC update for the game, many fans were surprised when 343 Industries took to Halo Waypoint to hint at more new content to arrive to the game.
According to IGN, the studio is hinting at more new content in terms of "new places to play," which means more maps are definitely on the way for gamers of "Halo 5: Guardians." They also hinted at "new REQs to wreak havoc with," which most likely means they will release more new Forge items. The blog post promised "much on the way," including the new "Halo 5" Content Browser.
The "Halo 5: Guardian" Content Browser is a new feature that according to the studio, will enable both Xbox One and Windows PC players to "discover incredible community-created content." The new Content Browser will be loaded with file options, screenshots, filters, trending maps, and other useful information for gamers to explore and absorb. The studio promised even more updates on the new feature in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, "Halo 5: Guardians" players who are also looking forward to "Halo Wars 2" would be glad to know that new b-roll footage has come out of this year's Gamescom. VG247 reports that the new footage features a first look at the Strongholds mode inside the Rift multiplayer map. Right smack in the middle is the monolithic Forerunner structure, which reportedly is responsible for harnessing the power from underneath the Ark's surface.
"Halo Wars 2" was originally given a 2016 deadline, but was moved to February 21, 2017. The game will be released on Windows 10 and Xbox One.
