3 new Arena Maps were revealed at Gamescom, Coliseum, Plaza, and The Rig. Two Warzone maps were also revealed, Stormbreak and the other is unknown at this point but it’s set in a metropolis like city. We also have screenshots showing the map Eden which was featured in the Beta and now has some changes to it.

Halo 5: Guardians Campaign footage of Blue Team! Finally we get to see the perspective of Master Chief (John), Fred, Kelly, and Linda! This gameplay primarily takes place during mission 2 of Halo 5: Guardian’s campaign which is aptly named “Blue Team”. This information coming from those who had early hands on experience with a portion of this mission back in May.
Throughout the course of the campaign the action will shift between these two teams. Blue Team’s missions represent vital turning points within the story and pose questions the player will answer while playing as Locke and Fireteam Osiris. Only by playing back and forth between the two teams will the complete story be told.
Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition 1TB Xbox One Console, LE Spartan Locke and Master Chief Controllers, and more announced at Gamescom 2015. The console is $500 dollars and comes with a 1TB hard drive and the console has Halo sound effects for when you power on, eject and power off the console.
It includes a digital copy of Halo 5: Guardians and includes Limited Edition content – this includes:
Spartan Themed Steelbook
Guardian Model by Metal Earth
Spartan Locke’s Classified Orders
Dossiers on Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris
The Fall of Reach Animated Series
Warzone REQ Bundle – with 14 Premium REQ packs
FOTUS armor for Halo 5 Guardians
And an exclusive emblem.
Now we’ve been told many times that pre-order bonus digital content is obtainable through regular gameplay progress. However I reached out for confirmation and found out that the emblem from the LE Halo 5 console is exclusive to those who purchase it, but the FOTUS armor can be earned by anyone through the REQ system. Those who buy the console just get it immediately on day 1.
@ChiefCanuck FOTUS can be earned in-game. Emblem is exclusive.
The console bundle also comes with a very cool limited edition Spartan Locke controller. You can also order this separately for $70. The controller comes with its own bonus REQ pack that includes the Resolute Visor.
There’s also a limited edition master chief controller that you can buy separately. It too comes with a bonus REQ pack that includes the Dauntless Visor.
Again, you might be able to unlock these on your own just by trying your luck with the REQ system.
The controllers are set to release early in October and the Limited Edition Halo 5 console will release on October 20th, a week before launch to allow fans time to pre-load the game just like the LCE of the game.
