343 Industries have promised regular free updates for Halo 5: Guardians and so far they have delivered. The Cartographer’s Gift update, which was first announced at The Game Awards 2015, is officially live today. It will be automatically installed upon your next boot up of the game. The free update features a rebuilt Forge Mode, new weapons, armor sets, assassinations, and four new multiplayer maps across a variety of game modes: The Battle of Noctus (Warzone), Overgrowth (Arena), and Antifreeze and Entombed (Big Team Battle).
The Cartographer’s Gift is the second free expansion for Halo 5: Guardians since November’s The Battle of Shadow and Light. The next free update is scheduled for January 2016. We can expect to keep seeing these updates all the way through June 2016.
