“Battle of Shadow and Light” Update for Halo 5: Guardians Brings Big Team Battle Mode, New Weapons and Armor

The release of free, post-launch content for Halo 5: Guardians begins this month with the first drop: Battle of Shadow and Light, which includes the stealthy new “Shinobi” Ninja-themed armor, some legendary Light Rifle firepower and the arrival of Big Team Battle maps, modes and mayhem.

There are tonnes of new items added to and unlocked in this month’s drop, including all-new Ultra Rare and Legendary items. We have Tundra and Woodland-themed skins, a brutal (or hilarious) Shove-It assassination and dozens more items to unlock, discover and utilise.


Big Team Battle is the cherry on top, and Halo fans will recognise elements and aspects of the first four maps in the mix, but all four have been significantly adjusted for the new mobility, weapons and features of Halo 5: Guardians. All four are available in both Customs and matchmaking, and present just a hint of the content featured in next month’s Forge mega-drop.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
