Updated November 2, 2017: The Halo 5 Xbox One X patch is now live.
Since then we haven't really heard much about it. There was no concrete release date for the upgrade. Many hoped that it would launch around the same time as the Xbox One X.
It looks like the day if here sooner than many expected and it's a welcome surprise. The studio just said that the Xbox One X update is coming out this Thursday, November 2, 2017. The update itself should start rolling out around 12 PM ET on that day. While 343 Industries didn't reveal the exact details of the upgrade, they did say that "Halo 5 now looks better than ever with 4K UHD support".
However, that's not all the patch adds to the game. The other major addition has to be the return of Oddball as an official game mode. You can now also host and play low-latency multiplayer matches with the Halo 5: Guardians Local Server application for Windows 10. The update will hopefully breathe new life into the game.
The update balances many of the weapons and modes, but also brings a lot of stability changes. If you haven't played the game — or haven't played it in a while — now seems like a great time to jump in. Halo 5 delivers a great multiplayer experience that span multiple modes, full-featured level building tools, and the most shocking Halo story to date.
Aside from the multiplayer which features a lot of maps and ways to play, The Master Chief saga continues in a four-player co-op experience that spans multiple worlds. A new but familiar force threatens the galaxy and it's up Master Chief and Spartan Locke to uncover the truth.
