Halo 5

As promised a few days ago, Microsoft and 343 Industries have released the free Battle of Shadow and Light content update for the hit Xbox One shooter Halo 5: Guardians.

The biggest part of the update is the Big Team Battle, the 8v8 multiplayer, and vehicle heavy, mode. Along with Big Team Battle comes four Forge-based maps that have been created just for that mode (Microsoft will release the Forge map editor for Halo 5 in a future update).

Also included are 48 new REQs "including new armors, helmets, weapon skins, weapon and vehicle variants, a new visor and assassination, and new emblems." In addition, 343 Industries has fixed a few small bugs in the game.
