Halo 5 Beta Test

Developer 343 Industries and publisher Microsoft continue to update the Halo 5 Guardians multiplayer beta for the Xbox One just a few days after its launch. Today, the developer announced that it will add a new game type, Breakout, to the beta, along with some other content.

Here's what new in the beta, according to 343 Industries:

"This week in the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta, battle it out in Breakout, a brand-new game type! Breakout is round-based, and your Spartan only has one life each round. The first team to take five rounds wins the match. You'll be able to play on two maps: Crossfire, and its variant, Trench."

"There will also be two new maps swapped into the Slayer playlist: Regret and Eden. Regret is a remix of Truth, and Eden is a remix of Empire, both of which were included in week 1. Additionally, you voted, and we answered: You'll be able to wield the Hydra MLRS, a brand-new weapon to the Halo universe, while slaying on Regret."

There are also BR starts in the Slayer playlist. The Halo 5 beta is scheduled to end on Jan. 18.
