After the announcement, last month that said that Player vs. Environment (PvE) combat would return to the Halo franchise in the form of Warzone Firefight, the fans of the game have been waiting eagerly to get the first look at how the new experience will look like in Halo 5: Guardians. The wait is finally over as the world premiere of Warzone Firefight gameplay made its debut during the Halo World Championship 2016 Finals.
To be fair, the Warzone Firefight is an ambitious new multiplayer experience as it takes the initial promise of Halo 5’s Warzone multiplayer that includes the epic battles, incredible scale and huge maps and applies that to create the biggest Halo cooperative experience ever in franchise history. In Warzone Firefight, up to eight players will work together to complete five rounds of increasingly difficult, dynamic objectives set that is to be completed according to a timer to emerge victorious.
Talking of other additions, the Warzone Firefight will feature more enemies than ever, including a brand new tier of “Mythic” enemy bosses. From what we see, Warden Eternal will definitely not seem the most menacing character after you look at the latest additions. Warzone Firefight features the most on-screen enemies in the history of the franchise, which does make it possible to get exhilarating and frantic matches.
Without the REQ system, the Warzone will never be complete, so there is some good news for the fans, you will have full access to all of your weapons, vehicles, power-ups, armor mods and more in Warzone Firefight.
We definitely think Warzone Firefight is going to be a fan favorite and can’t wait to try it ourselves. The dynamic objective does make it possible for you to play thousands of matches before seeing the same objective combination. The release will take place sometime this summer.
