What’s up, Halo-loving humans? Thanks for joining us for another round of Canon Fodder. In case you missed it, last week we gave you a little tease of Halo: Shadow of Intent by Halo story stalwart Joseph Staten. But why stop at the preview, as you can now just go grab the whole shebang and take in the alien goodness for yourself! So far fans love the return to form for everyone’s favorite Sangheili shipmaster, Rtas ‘Vadum, and you can join in the community discussion yourself right here on Halo Waypoint in the novella’s spoileriffic discussion thread. And if you want to increase the scope of your interaction, check out the discourse going on over at the Halo Archive and the HaloStory subreddit as well.
This week we’re going to be tackling some lore-laden details surrounding the latest Halo 5: Guardians update – Cartographer’s Gift. As many a seasoned Halo fan might guess based off the title, this latest update bestows the highly anticipated next evolution of Halo’s Forge mode upon our eager and creative community, and we absolutely can’t wait to see what our awesome and talented fans do with it. Along with Forge, there will be new maps, armors, skins, and weapon and vehicle REQs to collect – including the much sought-after M41 SPNKr rocket launcher (pictured). Around these parts, we know you all are particularly concerned with the backstory built in to such things, and as always, we’re happy to oblige. Let’s take a closer look!
