The next free DLC drop for Halo 5, Memories Of Reach, will launch this month and it brings new maps, new weapons, and new customisation options. You can watch a preview of the DLC via livestream on Wednesday, May 11 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. PDT at twitch.tv/halo and the Halo Channel. Here are some the highlights from the DLC.
- New multiplayer game mode – Infection. Band together with your fellow survivors or hunt your prey with cunning and skill; the highly anticipated Infection game mode is making its way to Halo 5: Guardians! In Infection, 12 players face off in a round-based game mode, where the initial Infected player aims to convert the survivors into Infected via elimination.
- New Arena Map – Stasis. Greedy for knowledge and prestige, researchers and AIs from Lethbridge Industrial pushed the boundaries at a remote research station, but the price of failure always tempered the risks they would take. Stasis is a mid-sized map that combines elements of symmetric sides with moderate asymmetrical features, giving it a hybrid design that’s unique to Halo 5: Guardians’ Arena multiplayer.
- New REQ items. Memories of Reach brings several new REQs that are sure to give you a nostalgic kick, with Noble Team coming back together in the Indomitable, Intruder, Vigilant and Wrath armour sets. Also included are new weapon skins, the Brute Plasma Rifle, assassinations, and legendary Phaeton Helios variant.
