New Halo Wars 2 DLC Arrives as More Maps Added to Halo 5 Big Team Battle
It has been nearly a year and a half since the release of Halo 5: Guardians, and the main entries of the Halo franchise have continued to prosper under the watch of 343 Industries. As such, 343 Industries has continued to support the game with DLC to keep Halo 5’s userbase invested in the franchise until the next entry in the main Halo series arrives. In tandem with the arrival of the new Halo Wars 2 DLC, Colony, we also now have several new additions to Halo 5, including 5 new maps for the Halo 5 Big Team Battle mode.
343 Industries has detailed these new updates in their new weekly blog post on the Halo Waypoint blog. The biggest updates to Halo 5: Guardians is the additions of Assault mode to the Big Team Battle playlist and 5 new maps added to Big Team Battle mode. This Assault mode addition keeps the standard Assault rules, but adds BRs to start and a longer match timer. Also added to Big Team Battle Mode are these 5 new maps: Ancestor, Echoes, Port Authority, Risen and Traffic Jam.
The new Halo Wars 2 DLC, Colony, has launched, which includes the leader Colony to the game, much like the recent addition of leader Kinsano. Aside from his addition, the update also attached various bug fixes and balancing adjustments. To top off the update, two achievements have been added. These are “Hunter/Hunted” which can be earned by using Hunter Captain’s Taunt ability 50 times, and “Turrets Everywhere” which is earned by attaching 50 Skitterers to squads.
The Colony DLC is available for $6 by itself, or as a part of the whole $30 season pass. What do you guys think? Are you interested in the new Halo Wars 2 DLC and the Halo 5 Big Team Battle maps? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
