343 Industries Tease Firefight for Halo 5: Guardians

Firefight Returns

In a preview for their Free Spring/Summer 200116 Content, 343 Industries the developers of Halo 5: Guardians teased the return of fan favourite Firefight. Firefight, first introduced in Halo 3: ODST was a PvE wave based co-operative game type. 343i promise that Guardians’ incarnation, dubbed ‘Warzone Firefight’, “will bring PvE to Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer”, and that they will keep us up-to-date over the coming months. The new name may indicate some connection with the current Warzone game types, possibly by using the same maps or borrowing elements of the formula. Whatever the case it is exciting news for those hankering for some more PvE.

Exciting Future Updates

Also exciting are the three other upcoming updates named ‘Ghosts of Meridian’, ‘Memories of Reach’, and ‘Hog Wild’. While it is a bit early to predict what these may contain, Warthog fans should be excited at the prospect of an update named after their favourite steed.
