With 2016 coming to a close, 343 Industries remains committed to giving owners of Halo 5: Guardians an ever expanding amount of content for the shooter. This latest one, called “Monitor’s Bounty” gives Forge and multiplayer a mountain load of new features on top of the new weapons, armour and skins.
New objects and “minigames” support now give creators the ability to create an even broader range of game variations. And so the most number of players can enjoy it, enhancements to the games browser makes it even easier to find the game you want and join even in progress sessions. A new observer mode now allows for spectators to follow games and players without having to be a part of the game itself. Big news is that now the Windows 10 game has been upgraded to a full Arena mode client so competitive play across both platforms is now at parity.
REQs are now able to be gifted to other players and everyone is being provided with a free pack to allow themselves to become familiar with the process. Finally, a unique new pack can be purchased in the form of the “Voices of War REQ Pack” that adds new game announcers, including Spartan Buck (Nathan Fillion).
Further details of the update can be found here via Halo Waypoint. With the flood of shooters in November now behind us it’s a perfect time to revisit Halo 5 and enjoy the mountain of multiplayer options the game has available.
Halo 5: Guardians is out now on Xbox One. Halo 5: Forge is out now for Windows 10.
