Almost a week ago, 343 Industries and Microsoft announced that Xbox Live Gold members would be able to download Halo 5: Guardians for free in celebration of the launch of Warzone Firefight, the eighth and largest content update that is now available.
Warzone Firefight introduces a new game mode, two new armors, three new maps, the Halo 2 Beam rifle, customization options that include HCS Pro League skins, a new Forge canvas, Score Attack for campaign, a new UNSC air vehicle and a new Warzone boss. For those without Gold, but the game is also being offered with a 50% discount through the Xbox Store.
For those players who’ve already purchased Halo 5: Guardians, logging into their accounts “for a limited time with this release” will reward them with a Gold REQ pack and additional packs if they win in the Warzone Firefight mode. Also, for a limited time, players will boost their chances of victory with the Spartan Recruit REQ Pack, which includes the Magnum with Extended Mag loadout and DMR loadout weapons, as well as three extra REQs for Scorpion, the Rocket Launcher and Sniper Rifle.
