Avid "Halo" fans can look forward to exciting new contents for 343 Industries' first person shooting game. Recently, the gaming company unveiled a video that teased of its plans for "Halo 5: Guardians."

343 Industries gave gamers a treat when it unveiled a teaser clip that contained snippets of its upcoming in-game content for "Halo 5: Guardians." In a message posted on the game's Twitter account on Nov. 16, Wednesday, the gaming company shared a quick video that included jumbled images of a handheld weapon, other artillery and an interesting location.

Similar to a hybrid shotgun, the weapon teased in the new "Halo 5" video appears to be a powerful firearm that can take out small enemy units. The teaser also hinted of a valley-like location which may be one of 343 Industries' upcoming new maps for the game.

Apart from the two game elements, the gaming company did not disclose other details for its upcoming "Halo 5" content. However, speculations posted on Game Rant indicated that future DLCs may be geared towards introducing more weaponry to the said gaming title.

Despite a few technical issues, 343 Industries has been consistent in providing new content for "Halo 5." In a span of one year, game developers have already deployed nine free DLCs for the game.

Released in September, "Anvil's Legacy" is the latest free expansion pack released for the game. Other "Halo 5" DLCs include "Warzone Firefight," "Hog Wild," "Memories of Reach," "Ghosts of Meridian," "Hammer Storm," "Infinity's Armor," "Cartographer's Gift," as well as "The Battle of Shadow and Light."

Meanwhile, "Halo" recently celebrated its 15th anniversary. To commemorate the milestone, 343 released a special tribute video and an in-game REQ Pack gift for avid gamers. Players can claim their free "Halo 5 REQ Pack" by simply logging into the game, as indicated in a blog posted on the game's website. Each pack contains a Mark 4 Armor and Helmet, four SPNKRs, four CE Magnums and four "Halo 2" Beam Rifles.
