Halo 5: Guardians Cartographer’s Gift now available, includes Forge mode, new weapons, and new maps

Halo 5: Guardians fans, take note. Microsoft has officially released another content update for its most important Xbox One title. We wrote about the Cartographers Gift update earlier in the week, and now it’s available for download.

The update is completely free, and so that’s a bonus. Here’s Microsoft’s take on the update:

Since the introduction of Forge in Halo 3, the community has been creating, sharing, and pushing the mode to its absolute limits. With Forge in Halo 5: Guardians, the only limit is your imagination. The new Forge was built with years of community feedback in mind, and arrives just in time for the holidays.

The Cartographer’s Gift update also adds a plethora of other new content to Halo 5: Guardians. For example, the classic M41 “SPNKr” Rocket Launcher and MARK IV [GEN 1] armor set REQs will become available for you to collect for your arsenal, and four new maps – the Warzone map “The Battle of Noctus,” Arena map “Overgrowth,” and Big Team Battle maps “Antifreeze,” and “Entombed” – will be added to the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer experience.

You can get all the details on the update over at Halo Waypoint, where there’s a ton of new stuff to check out. And so, what are you waiting for? Go turn on your Xbox One, fire up Halo 5: Guardians, and get updated. Awesome new gameplay awaits!
