Beginning this weekend Halo 5: Guardians will receive its first featured Warzone playlist: Warzone Turbo.
In this twist on the Warzone formula, all players receive Level 9 status once the Home Base is secured, and everyone also is imbued with near-instantaneous energy regeneration. Your entire REQ inventory will be available for the entire match, leading to large scale mayhem.
Funny enough, originally we had no plans to ever release Warzone Turbo. We created the game type at the request of our test team so that they could more efficiently test Warzone features and functionality without having to wait to level up or refill energy. Then one day we made the “mistake” of giving the mode a whirl during our afternoon studio playtest. It was incredibly chaotic and surprisingly a ton of fun to play, which inevitably led to a long and drawn out internal discussion that went something like this:
“Should we ship this?”
“We can’t not ship this!”
The playlist will be available until Monday morning, on April 4th.
