This Friday the first ever official Halo 5: Guardians tournament will take place live from Cologne, Germany at this year’s gamescom, and our four invited teams from North America and Europe will be duking it out in Slayer on the maps Empire and Fathom. With help from our Pro Team, Prima Games is working on the strategy guide for Halo 5: Guardians, and we’re excited to give you a small preview by breaking down the maps you’ll be seeing all week, including the ones in the Halo 5: Guardians gamescom Invitational tournament.
The UNSC explores Beta Gabriel’s vast oceans in hopes of recovering wreckage hidden in the crushing depths.
This symmetrical 4v4 arena set leagues under the ocean sports one Sniper Rifle for teams to fight over as well as a Shotgun for those who prefer to fight up close and personal.
Military-industrial concerns that power the UNSC war machine are prime targets for Insurrection factions.
You'll likely remember this map from the Multiplayer Beta earlier this year but a few things have been tweaked thanks to your feedback. You can now find an Overshield on this map as well as the all-new Plasma Caster to assist your explosive strategy.
The full guide by Prima Games will be available this year alongside the release of Halo 5: Guardians so you can hit the ground running. Head over to PrimaGames.com for more information.
Be sure to tune in to the Halo 5: Guardians gamescom Invitational this Friday at 4PM CEST / 7AM PDT to catch the action. As always you can watch live on Halo Channel and Twitch.tv/Halo. For all updates on Halo 5: Guardians follow @Halo on Twitter.
