That Halo 2 Battle Rifle. That music. Give me the Infinity’s Armory DLC now! 343 just released a fun trailer showing off the new extras coming to Halo 5: Guardians.
Ha! I love the initial serious tone and then switching to a pizza skin. And the skins don’t stop at pizza. Eagles? C’mon, ‘Murica is Xbox’s strongest area. How could 343 not make one? Mister Chief and UNSC-themed skins are also on the way.
Enough about the skins, though. How about that classic BR? And that classic zoom?
Now, will I actually be able to use the BR? I played Halo 5: Guardians for a solid month after release and never unlocked a DMR skin. Why can’t we just pay a little extra in REQ points to buy a specific skin, instead of hoping for REQ packs to give them to us? Some of you might get lucky, but Halo 5 is determined to give me nothing but plasma pistols, armor I don’t care about and random vehicles I don’t want.
While this month’s update is heavy on the nostalgia, two new maps are also on the way.
Riptide for Arena (new take on Fathom).
And Urban for Warzone.
Where the hell is Grifball?
It’s a question I’ll ask in every Halo 5 article until it comes out. There is a glimmer of hope on this front. 343 Studio Head Josh Holmes jumped on the Team Beyond forums yesterday and wrote, “As Bravo has hinted, we’re also working on some new classic game types. We’re hoping to release the first of those toward the end of February, testing permitting.”
Cough, cough, Grifball…
Holmes also wrote they are working on a community playlist to incorporate Forge-made maps. This should be up and running sometime over the next month.
Alright 343, you win with the classic Battle Rifle. But I want to start seeing some new game modes (permanent) make their way to Halo 5: Guardians.
What do you think of the Infinity’s Armory DLC? And, if you could have one game mode added to Halo 5: Guardians – what would it be?
