Halo 5: Guardians' long-anticipated Warzone Firefight multiplayer mode arrives on Wednesday June 29, along with the game's eighth free title update, 343 Industries announced.

Warzone Firefight, which combines Halo 5's Warzone multiplayer mode and Halo 3: ODST's popular Firefight playlist, went through a beta back in April. Feedback from that test helped to add new features, such as new vehicles and bosses. Read more about them here.

Warzone Firefight isn't the only addition with this title update. "Score Attack" will be introduced to the game's campaign, as a means of competing or co-operating with friends to rack up a high score through the game's story. Three new maps also are coming, as well as a new canvas for the Forge map editor, as detailed previously.
