I’m still digesting my playthrough of the Halo 5: Guardians story. I had a blast but was disappointed with how short it was (at least, for me). Me and two friends knocked it out in under five hours. And that was with some messing around on Heroic difficulty.
Many of us instantly compare it to Halo 2. You gotta love a cliffhanger ending…
Halo 5: Guardians plays great, but ends just as you start getting into it.
So, what about DLC? 343’s focus moving forward is on the multiplayer side of things. “While we’re always looking for new ways to expand the Halo universe, we do not currently have any plans to release future campaign content for Halo 5: Guardians,” 343’s Josh Holmes tells Red Bull.
The comment isn’t surprising. 343 still has Forge to release and 15 DLC maps to work on.
Still, some extra story DLC would be awesome. Maybe flesh out Master Chief reuniting with Blue Team before the events of Halo 5: Guardians. Or, focus on Master Chief a bit more during the major plot points of the story.
There’s a lot to talk about on Halo 5’s story, but I’m going to wait a few more days while everyone gets a chance to finish it.
Halo 5 Multiplayer DLC
Been stuck on Halo 5 since its release? Then you probably missed episodes 3 and 4 of The Sprint’s third season. It looks like at least some of the BTB maps will be built in Forge. In the fourth episode, we get a glimpse of Recurve – a new take on Longbow from Halo 4. Fast forward to about 13:40 in the episode below to see it in action.
It looks pretty damn good.
Forge is expected to release in December, “just in time for the holiday break” according to the developers. Check out this post to see all the improvements coming to Forge in Halo 5: Guardians.
Head on over to Red Bull to read the rest of their write up, including 343’s heavy focus on competitive multiplayer.
