The new "Halo 5: Guardians" free expansion provides new maps, weapons and features that will add more hours of gameplay. There will also be new skins, attachments and a content browser. Here are the details on the new "Halo 5: Guardians" DLC.

Concept arts for the Arena battleground maps were recently featured by 343 Industries, which are said to be available for free. It is still uncertain whether the "Halo 5: Guardians" update also includes new maps for Warzone and Warzone Firefight. There were also images of new weapons, skins and attachments.

Halo Waypoint stated that the free "Halo 5: Guardians" expansion will bring the very rare Gunfighter Magnum weapon, which is a lightweight competition pistol favored by Spartan controllers. The powerful weapon also includes magazines that reload quickly, iron sights, and the absence of a smart-link module. It serves as a trusty backup weapon.

Some of the new weapon skins that will arrive in the "Halo 5: Guardians" DLC are the Landgrave BR and Landgrave Magnum. There will also be a new weapon skin set. One REQ, which remains unannounced, was given particular attention in the blog. The Ultra Rare variant was reportedly very effective in attacking Phaetons, Wasps and Banshees.

The "Halo 5: Guardians" update will also provide a brand new Content Browser that allows Xbox One and Windows 10 players to discover new content made by the gaming community. "Halo 5: Guardians" players can conveniently access the available content with the new prefabs, file options, trending maps, screenshots and filters. 330,000 maps have been created for the game. The file browser will take out the need for a gamer tag to locate fan-made creations in "Forge."

Another Halo Waypoint blog revealed that the next "Halo 5: Guardians 5" update also features an arena battleground. The new places are almost ready to be presented. Every spot, vantage point, weapon pads and related aspects of the map were carefully observed. A number of images of the weapons, maps and gameplay were included in the post. More updates and new DLC details on "Halo 5: Guardians" are expected soon.
