For those who can’t get enough of Halo 5: Guardians’ campaign mode, we’ve got some bad news. Developer 343 Industries has no plans to release story DLC for the Xbox One-exclusive first-person shooter.
In an interview with Red Bull, Halo 5
creative director Josh Holmes downright said: “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 the campaign is already around 10-15 hours long -- very long for a first-person shooter -- depending on your playstyle, it’s understandable why 343 might feel more content is not needed, at least for the foreseeable future. Most gamers don’t play FPS games for their story, right?
It’s not all bad news, however, because the developer will continue to support the game’s multiplayer mode with future add-ons, including 18+ free maps and the brand new ‘Warzone’ game mode that Holmes described as large in scope, stating:
"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."
