Halo 5 is getting Warzone Firefight and a free-play promo next week


Play the whole game for a limited time with Xbox Live Gold

Next week is a big one for Halo 5: Guardians, whether you own the game or not.

On June 29, 343 Industries is adding Warzone Firefight, a round-based PvE survival mode, as well as Score Attack for the campaign, three maps (Attack on Sanctum, Prospect, and Molten), an oceanic canvas for Forge mode, and more REQ items. Just so we’re on the same page, that is indeed a Grunt in a Grunt-looking mech up there — it’s a new boss type for Warzone and Warzone Firefight.

Starting on that same day, Xbox Live Gold members will get a week of access to “the full game.” With your subscription, you’ll be able to download and play Halo 5 at no extra cost from June 29 to July 5.

If you’re up for that, be sure to make room on your hard drive. I’m talking 80GB+ here.
