Halo 5 has two new modes, one new map and a pile of REQ and Forge additions.

Another free Halo 5: Guardians content drop has landed.

Hammer Storm brings back Grifball, Assault and Fiesta, which will please longterm fans. The Gravity Hammer and the Halo: CE Pistol should be equally delightful.

For purists, the biggest news is probably Torque, a new symmetrical map designed for Capture the Flag and Assault.

On the REQ front, look for attachments for loadout weapons, weapon skins, armors, emblems, assassinations, visors and stances. Forge creators can enjoy ball mechanics for making new modes.

All of these and more are detailed in the full patch notes on Halo Waypoint, as well as showcased in the video below.

If you stay tuned to the end of the trailer, 343 Industries teases a new co-op mode called Warzone Firefight, too. It will “let players battle together against common foes (and truly show off their custom Spartans to boot)”, apparently, and will be detailed in the coming months.
