Halo 5 Multiplayer Beta Expands With New Maps & Modes

Owners of Halo: The Master Chief Collection can now enjoy the Xbox One only multiplayer beta for Halo 5: Guardians. Players were able to ring in the new year with a killing spree as the beta began last week on December 28th and will last until January 18th. A major update to the beta was released a few days ago that adds more weapons and a brand new game mode.

The new mode is called ‘Breakout’ where every player begins the match with only one life and the first team to win five rounds claims victory. In terms of new maps  Regret joins the list of available maps, Regret is a remake of the multiplayer map Midship from 2004’s Halo 2.
