Newly surfaced Halo 5: Guardians details suggest that a healthy offering of both vanilla and DLC multiplayer maps will keep Halo fans on Xbox One busy for quite some time this Fall and into 2016.
According to an exclusive Halo 5: Guardians preview provided by GameInformer in their latest July Issue, revealed by user shinobi602 on NeoGAF , the game will launch with over 20 multiplayer maps and will provide another 15 downloadable ones by June 2016. The kicker is that all maps are said to be free of charge, which will ensure a non-fragmented multiplayer community after any DLC launch.
In addition, developer 343 Industries has plans to reveal a “completely new, epic multiplayer experience” next week at E3 2015 that aims to incorporate “all aspects of the Halo sandbox for the first time ever.” 343 describes it as a “dream of ours and all our fans to build something like this.”
Additional details are under wraps, but we’ll certainly find out more soon. Microsoft’s media briefing begins at 9:30 AM Pacific this coming Monday, June 15. Here are all the places you can watch it. Halo 5: Guardians launches on Xbox One October 27.
