343 Industries has revealed the first bits of info about the next major update to Halo 5: Guardians. Titled Infinity’s Armor, the update will include a ton of new content for the game, which includes a bunch of cosmetic stuff, but also new maps for players to enjoy.
These maps seem much bigger and better than those we’ve seen added to the game so far, most of which were modified Forge maps. These look to be wholly new creations, including the introduction of a new Warzone map titled Urban. Arena also gets some love with Riptide. These are said to be “remix” maps, so they’re based on other currently available levels, but modified by the team.
On top of this come some new weapons, one of which should really please longtime series fans. The Halo 2 Battle Rifle returns to the series in this update, with what seems to be all of its classic features intact. The inclusion of the Mark V Alpha Armor should also make fans happy, bringing a bit of nostalgia to Halo 5: Guardians.
Halo 5 Infinity’s Armor is the January update for the game, so expect it some time in the next week or two. Halo 5: Guardians is available now exclusively for Xbox One.
