Microsoft and 343 Industries have shown off more footage of the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians. The developer demonstrated arena play using the Capture the Flag mode.

The gameplay pitted the UK's Team Epsilon against the US-based OpTic Gaming in the Colosseum map, which is symmetrical with two bases. 343 also announced that gamers will be able to pre-download the game a week in advance of release, which takes place on October 27, 2015. Pre-downloading will of course only be available to those that pre-ordered the game. A new Halo 5 Limited Edition Xbox One console with a 1TB hard drive will also be available for pre-order.
