343 Industries is getting the holiday celebrations off to an early start – Monitor’s Bounty is out now for Halo 5: Guardians! The latest content release marks the tenth update for Halo 5: Guardians, and includes new weapons, armor and skins, brand new ways to play and seek out custom games and the largest Forge update we’ve ever released.
Halo 5 players on Xbox One and Windows 10 will now have a new way to find matches and teammates with the addition of the join-in-progress Custom Games Browser. This new browser enables players to search for in-progress games from the main menu and utilizes the content browser to filter for any map or mode your heart desires.
With this powerful new feature, Halo 5: Forge on Windows 10 graduates to a full-fledged Halo Arena multiplayer experience, letting players search, find and join games to play with strangers and friends alike – at up to 4K resolutions – for free!
With Monitor’s Bounty, Halo 5’s Forge mode has also been updated with more than 650 new objects on top of entirely new systems and functionality! One of the most exciting outcomes is an expanded ability to create all-new game modes in Halo 5. With this new “Minigames” functionality, players can not only experience fan-favorite modes like Race and King of the Hill, but also create new modes and experiences, the likes of which have never been seen in a Halo game before.
