Over the past day a lot of Halo news was dropped during the Halo 5 2 hour live stream. This included plenty of information, all of which will be broken down on XBLG for all the Halo fans. One of the big features announced was Halo 5 Local Servers. This was used at the HCS events and is now being brought to everyone. 343 Industries have confirmed that for future Halo games there will be support for classic local play as well as LAN. This has now been confirmed for Halo 5 too.
Hello everyone, Jordan here, and this article is focusing on something a little different than just gaming. The actual campaign is called “Stand up to cancer” and is ran by Channel 4 and Cancer Research UK. It's a campaign aimed at gamers to have their chance at helping raise money towards this important cause. You can find the campaign page here. On Saturday the 29th of April I will be doing a 6 hour Halo Live stream to help raise money for Cancer Research. It will start at 6:30pm BST and be streamed on twitch. My goal is £200 but any and all donations are greatly appreciated. You can find all the details on my donation page below.
Every week since the launch of the Halo Community section, there has been two game nights. The original set up was to have casual players play one night, and competitive players another, thus having Firefight Sundays and Arena Wednesdays. Plenty of feedback and experience has happened since then. Now there is just a good old game night. Wednesdays and Sundays are still the set days, with 7pm British Time remaining as the starting time.
The people at 343 Industries who are at the helm of a little known franchise called Halo have teamed up with the good people at Loot Crate. This partnership will be bringing the Halo Legendary Crate to peoples doorsteps; it is packed with exclusive figures, apparel, collectables, in-game items and more.
The crate will be delivered once every 2 months starting in August, for the UK residents the price is roughly £33 a crate if you pick the lower end options. Each crate will be themed around a key aspect of the Halo Universe. The first crate will focus on UNSC Super Soldiers with the SPARTAN-IV initiation crate.
