Early Wednesday, October 7th, Halo 5: Guardians officially went gold. The Halo Waypoint announcement by 343 Industries does have a flip side as well, the company also indicated that there will be a significant patch coming on launch day. While this shouldn’t come as a surprise to most current-gen gamers, it’s really the only “sore spot” in the release. Below is an infographic 343 included in their post, showing a ton of great content on its way for the Halo 5 release.
Amongst the infographic numbers are some great tidbits of Halo news. Some of them range from a 15 mission campaign that could last from 8-12 hours to a large 21 multiplayer map cycle on launch day, and 18 more coming in the future. The day one patch will be linked to that multiplayer content, 343 states:
We will have a multiplayer content update, prior to launch, that will supplement the online multiplayer goodness with map content for Arena Multiplayer and our all new massive-scale 12v12 Warzone Multiplayer.
Just 20 days before launch, a Halo 5: Guardians that has gone gold is great news. Here’s hoping the update for multiplayer will help fix any issues that plagued the Halo: The Master Chief Collection last year. In any case, the game is less than three weeks away and with a ton of great content offline and online ready to be played, it’s an exciting time for Xbox One owners and Halo fans.

David is a lover of all things nerdy & geeky! (Nerd IS the new cool after all!)
From the wee age of 6 he made his way to a Canadian Tire, purchased a SNES for $200 in in-store credit money (Canadian Tire money for Canadians out there), and hasn’t looked back!
He loves the classics like Donkey Kong, Mario, and Roller Coaster Tycoon, but is deep into the new age of gaming with Heroes of the Storm, Apex Legends, and indies like Thomas Was Alone, and Mark of the Ninja.
