There’s currently no plans to release story DLC for Halo 5: Guardians according to the game’s creative director, Josh Holmes. Speaking in an interview with Red Bull (you can read the full thing here), Holmes said that: “While we’re always looking for new ways to expand the Halo universe, we do not currently have any plans to release future campaign content for Halo 5: Guardians.”
Considering that Halo 5’s campaign is already reported to be around 10-15 hours long depending on playstyle, one can hardly be surprised that 343 feel that they don’t need to add any more content to an already meaty (by first-person shooter standards) experience.
So that’s story DLC off the table at least for the foreseeable future, but Guardians is still going to be receiving a whole bunch of post-launch support in the form of multiplayer add-ons, including 18+ free maps. Don’t forget the brand new ‘Warzone’ game mode, either, which Holmes says is rather large in its scope:
It [Warzone] features the biggest maps in franchise history, and the highest player count ever in Halo – 24 players – as well as objectives such as base assaults, boss encounters and more. All Warzone AI is computed in the cloud, filling the map with dozens of AI characters in the form of friendly and enemy soldiers protecting their bases, Covenant and Forerunner enemy troops deploying across the map and incredible boss battles that alone can change the entire tide of battle.
Halo 5: Guardians is out now exclusively for Xbox One. Check out our review to see what we thought of it.
