'Halo 5: Guardians' (XOne) Free This Weekend with Xbox Live Gold

by Rainier on Jan. 11, 2018 @ 10:14 a.m. PST

Halo 5: Guardians is the next installment in the saga of the Master Chief, with more content, and larger in scope than its predecessor, built from the ground up with a brand new and more powerful engine.

Halo 5: Guardians continues the story of the Master Chief, and introduces a brand new central character to the Halo universe – Spartan Locke.  Peace is shattered when colony worlds are unexpectedly attacked.  And when humanity’s greatest hero goes missing, Spartan Locke is tasked with hunting the Master Chief and solving a mystery that threatens the entire galaxy.

Experience the most dramatic Halo story to date in a four-player cooperative epic that spans three worlds. Challenge friends and rivals in new multiplayer modes: Warzone, massive 24-player battles, and Arena, pure 4-versus-4 competitive combat.

Halo 5: Guardians will be free for Xbox Live Gold members from Thursday, January 11 at 12:01 a.m. PST until Sunday, January 14 at 10:59 p.m. PST. During this time, players can download the game and experience the latest chapter in the Halo saga spanning multiple worlds and a journey that will change the course of history and the future of mankind. Fans can enjoy this grand campaign solo or with up to three friends via online co-op.

Xbox Live Gold members can jump into Halo 5‘s epic multiplayer modes as well. Halo 5’s Arena multiplayer continues the established franchise legacy of pure, skill-based 4v4 competitive combat. Multiple Arena modes provide endless ways to play and compete, from classic Slayer and Capture the Flag to popular social modes like Infection, Super Fiesta, and the brand-new Quick Play playlist that offers an easy way to get acquainted with Halo 5 Arena. Additionally, completely new to the Halo franchise, players can jump in to Warzone, battling other players as well as enemy AI to dominate the field, or work together with other players to conquer increasingly challenging waves of enemy combatants.

As an added bonus, Halo 5: Guardians will be on sale for 20% off for the duration of the program. With more than two years of free new content releases including multiple multiplayer maps, gameplay modes, and weapons, armors, and more, Halo 5: Guardians has evolved into the biggest, best, and most immersive Halo game to date. Should you decide to join the fight after the program, all your saved progress and earned achievements will be waiting for you when you purchase the game.
