343 Industries Reveals Details, Trailer For Upcoming 'Halo 5' Warzone Firefight Update

Last month, 343 Industries revealed Halo 5: Guardian's upcoming free content plans for the spring and summer. Among the list of updates included a new take on the “Firefight” co-op multiplayer mode called “Warzone Firefight,” and the developers revealed more information — including a new trailer — about it during the finals of the Halo World Championship.

Unlike most of the multiplayer modes in Halo 5: Guardians, Warzone Firefight is a cooperative-based match where up to eight players will need to work together and defeat five waves of increasingly difficult enemies. The developers also added a new tier of bosses, titled “Mythics,” which could make for a tougher fight when combined with the already-intimidating swarm of enemies.

The survival mode was first introduced in Bungie’s Halo 3: ODST in 2009, but the team at 343 Industries added its own twist by mixing it with the popular Warzone mode. This provides the same Firefight experience that Halo fans want with the game's large-scale maps. Additionally, you will also be able to use Warzone’s REQ system, which allows for the purchase of better weapons and vehicles as you continue to rack up points.

Warzone Firefight is the final installment of 343 Industries’ free content lineup when it arrives in the summer. Before that, there will be three other updates for the game: “Ghosts of Meridian,” “Memories of Reach” and “Hog Wild.” For now, fans can look forward to the Ghosts of Meridian update when it arrives in April. It will introduce additional items for multiplayer such as weapons, helmets, vehicles and a new Warzone map titled “Skirmish at Darkstar.”

    Free dlc is the best kind of dlc. Technically people buying the packs for real money are making the dlcs free, but giving players the choice is doing it right.

    I don't know about you, but Tom's Hardware is one of the greatest sites I've ever found when it comes to seeking help for PC-related problems. Not sure what you were trying to accomplish with your comment, but whatever it is, you're wrong.

    It might accomplish next year being either bothered to attend or upping their game to get invited. I've been an active user on this site for years and it has seriously gone downhill. If you can't see that all it means is you just don't know the difference. Which is more fool you.

    Compared to what? Just did a few random checks of the Alexa rankings and at least looking at its peers it seems fine.

    So no answer as to why they are days late on every major event, including no presence or report on the biggest event of the biggest tech company in the world. Thought so.

    We do not really care about apple here. This is for P.C. enthusiast and hobbyist. Not exactly a site for discussing over priced, under powered apple computers, Nor is the site to big on ipads. They discussed the Ipad pro a little but that thing is a failure. Iphone is cool for people who use it but this isn't primarily a phone site. There is no reason for the audience at Toms hardware to have a interest in a apple event. Seems like you are on the wrong site.
