Halo 5: Guardians allows a peek at what's on the way with Ghosts of Meridian

The next free update arrives in April

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

The next update coming to Halo 5: Guardians is Ghosts of Meridian, and in an update on Halo Waypoint 343 Industries shared details of what players may expect in the package of maps, vehicles, weapons, armor and more.

Ghosts of Meridian will introduce 35 new items to Halo 5's requisition system, or the library of unlockable weapons, cosmetic skins and other rewards. An image at Waypoint teased some of them that are on the way, including the Hannibal Scorpion tank, Dynast armor, and Tartarus' Gavel, which is a giant melee hammer. There is much more detail on the reqs that have been revealed at this Waypoint post.

The April update will add more than just virtual swag, 343 said. There will be updates to multiplayer in the Warzone and Arena game types and improvements to the Forge toolkit. "Spartan Laser tuning" will also update certain weapons, too.

Halo 5: Guardians had rolled out a free content update every month since it launched in November, but 343 will miss March as Ghosts of Meridian is not due until sometime in April.

Later this summer, Halo 5: Guardians will get an all-new multiplayer game type called Warzone Firefight. More details on it can be seen in the video below.
