Halo 5 developer 343 Industries really doesn’t want you to miss this one.

Halo 5: Guardians has certainly lived up to promises of ongoing support: this week’s Monitor’s Bounty update was the tenth free content and feature drop for the shooter.

And what a whopper it was: as well as the usual slew of REQ items, it introduced REG pack gifting, a new observer mode and a “join in progress” custom games browser – not to mention delivering Halo 5 Arena and Forge to PC for free.

For those who enjoy building their own content or playing community creations, the update also made huge changes to Halo 5’s forge including mini-games like Race, King and Battle Golf.

You should investigate those links for all the details as there’s loads more to discover in Halo 5: Monitor’s Bounty, but if you just want a quick update, the video above shows off the Forge side of things to great effect. Microsoft and 343 Industries really want to make sure you know all this is happening, it seems. We have now discharged our duties in this regard, I believe.
