Halo 5 is one of the most popular games on the Xbox One platform, with millions of players on its servers at any given time. Microsoft is well aware of this and is trying to further improve the gaming experience by adding new features to the game.

The next Halo 5 free update will consist of three new maps and the long-awaited Warzone Firefight mode that will lets eight players cooperate in order to complete five rounds of dynamic objectives before the timer ends.

This mode will let you focus on power weapons if you want to try to open the map’s gates in order to access vehicles to support ground troops. Thanks to the new Warzone Assault feature, players will be able to use new strategies and tactics.

The Warzone Firefight […] e is the biggest one yet, and we’re packing in as much as we can fit. You’ll of course find the improved and updated Warzone Firefight PvE mode on a variety of maps, the Warzone Boss Refresh, a brand new Forge canvas as well as accompanying Forge updates, Campaign Score Attack […], updates to Warzone personal scoring, Series 1 of the HCS weapon skins, new places to play in multiplayer, fixes for incorrect rank display as well as non-English languages not displaying placement matches, a couple of achievements for Score Attack as well as Warzone Firefight, new vehicles, armors, weapons, and plenty more that we’ll start to dig into today and over the next few weeks.

Score Attack is one of the most eagerly awaited features, allowing players to earn points and gain up to 50 medals as a reward for killing enemies with style. It’s time to get creative!

The Warzone Firefight mode brings three new multiplayer maps. So far, Microsoft revealed only one: Prospect.

On Prospect, players get dropped immediately into a mining facility and are tasked with attacking the defenders that lie within. A key opening strategy is to take advantage of various flank paths hidden in the terrain to gain the upper hand. The level itself is layered with strategically-placed scaffoldings, plenty of cover, and well-worn trenches, all designed to give players on both sides of the battle more options to take the fight to their opponents […].

If the upcoming features awaken your interest in the game, you can download Halo 5 from the Microsoft Store now.
