A free update for Halo 5: Guardians – Battle of Shadow and Light – is now available. The next time players log on to Halo 5: Guardians, they will be prompted to download and install a mandatory content update.
It will add the following all-new content:
- Big Team Battle – 8v8 team combat comes to Halo 5: Guardians!
- 4 New Big Team Battle maps – Grab a group of friends, jump in a Warthog and duke it out on four new Big Team Battle canvases:
- 48 New REQs – New weapons, weapon skins, armor, vehicles, player emblems, and the new “Shove It” assassination add even more variety to the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer experience.
NOTE: While the Big Team Battle playlist is now available to play, the new REQ content will take a bit of time to make their way into the Requisition System (REQ System), so expect to see them in 24 hours or less.
Visit Halo Waypoint for more details about all the new items that Battle of Shadow and Light includes, such as the Ultra Rare Shinobi armor, the Legendary Dying Star Light Rifle, the Shove-It assassination and much more.
343 Industries is hard at work creating more multiplayer content to keep players immersed in the action. Battle of Shadow and Light is just the first of many free updates being developed for Halo 5: Guardians; the highly-anticipated Forge mode drops next month, so stay tuned to Xbox Wire and Halo Waypoint for more information.
