Community Doubles

By 343 Industries -

We're always keeping an eye on what's going on in the passionate and creative Forge community, and lately, we've been keeping a particularly close eye on ForgeHub's 2v2 Map Contest. When the contest submission period came to a close earlier this Spring, a total of 145 maps had been entered for consideration. After months of playtesting and looking at the maps details in Forge, the organizers finally had their top ten. When we heard that they had narrowed it down to the best submissions, our curiosity got the best of us, and we reached out to take a peek at them. After extensive playtesting, and with loving feedback from our Multiplayer, Art, and Pro Teams, they were deemed ready for the open ocean we call matchmaking.

We're pretty excited about involving the talented community yet again in the Halo 5 experience, and can't wait for you to try out these playspaces for yourself. Without further ado, here are the maps you’ll be playing this week in Community Doubles:

Monitor’s Bounty is bringing in a lot of new content, more content than your probably anticipated, but it’s also bringing quite a few Arena and Warzone playlist updates along with it. The focus of this write-up will be to discuss changes to Ranked and Social playlists, how they will be arranged in-game, the addition of new Forge maps, and touch lightly on playlist management.

Spookyfest - Community Infection Modes

By Unyshek -

In a Community Update quite some time ago, we featured ArturBloodshot's scary Infection mode – The Cellar. Since then, he's been one of our go-to sources for scary Forge minigames, and has shown Ske7ch, Grim, and me some great creations. Recently, he compiled a list of his favorite frightening Infection modes and shared them with us, and we in turn wanted to share it with all of you for Halloween. If you feel like playing some nerve-racking custom games on this All Hallows' Eve, look no further...
