The third and final week of the Halo 5: Guardians beta is here and it brought with it a new map and a new game mode.

Following on from last week’s poll, 343 Industries has added the Forge-created map Pegasus to the roster. The map is available in Slayer. It favours marksman weapons due to its open, long sightlines. Truth will also be rejoining Pegasus in the Slayer playlist.

Strongholds is the new mode. The mode is a capture-and-hold affair where Spartans must capture and hold three zones to win. Teams only get points if they have two zones or more. The first team that gets to 100 points wins the match.

Rocket launchers are also now available.

The Halo 5 beta ends this Sunday, January 18.
