First update of 'Halo 5: Guardians Beta' adds new content such as game modes and maps
New content added in the first update of Halo 5: Guardians Beta
Last we heard the first set of improvements for the recently released Multiplayer game, Halo 5: Guardians Beta were already set in motion and now the ambitious developers 343 Industries have provided the first update of the game with new content that promises a good time to the players.
This is the first update week for the game, which will feature a few new maps and a new game mode, along with some alterations to the base modes available already. The beta will continue to run until January 18th, with more additions coming later on.
The update brings two new maps and one game mode
As far as what has been added this week, that would be two new maps for Slayer called Regret and Eden, along with a new game mode called Breakout which features its own map selection. Breakout is a round based match that doesn’t allow respawning. Each Spartan only gets one life and the last team to have a player still alive is the winner. Breakout is only playable on Crossfire and Trench.
As far as Slayer is concerned, it will get Regret and Eden added on top of the two maps already available. One major thing has also been changed within Slayer, with 343 Industries making each mode Battle Rifle starts.
This should mix up the gameplay significantly as players focus more on medium range combat as opposed to close-quarters action. 343 has also added in one new weapon, the Hydra MLRS, which will be usable on Regret. This is a brand new weapon for the series, so be sure to grab it and try it out when you can.
