343 Details Halo 5’s Warzone Firefight Beta

A huge new mode is coming to Halo 5: Guardians when the next monthly update drops. Warzone Firefight is, predictably, a combination of two popular Halo game modes, Firefight and Warzone. The dynamic player vs enemy game mode is so ambitious that 343 wants to test the waters with an open beta.

From April 14-18, all Halo 5 players can test out the new game mode with an open beta on the Xbox One. Up to eight players can compete on one team, challenging five waves of enemy soldiers on some of the game’s biggest maps.

The five-day beta experience will see Spartan fireteams of up to 8 players battle against an onslaught of enemy AI on the Escape from A.R.C. Warzone map. You and your friends will tackle a new objective for each of the five rounds, with each task growing progressively more demanding along the way. And since the mode is a fully realized member of the Warzone family, players will have full access to their arsenal in the Halo 5: Guardians REQ system, letting you leverage your REQs in new ways against computer-controlled enemies. In addition, we will offer a brand new promotional pack – the Mythic Warzone REQ Pack – which will make it even easier for eager Spartans to unlock the most powerful REQs in the system.

Halo 5: Guardians is now available exclusively on Xbox One.
