Halo 5 Guardians Beta: New Abilities and Modes Discussed by 343 Industries

Many of you are going to get your first taste of the next installment in the Halo series through the Halo 5 Guardians beta.

Although we are more than a month away from that, I guess it is okay to remind you that the beta is going to be more about helping 343 Industries fix things rather than letting you guys enjoy it.

Josh Holmes, the head of 343 Industries has said that right now the game was in an early stage. So the developers were looking forward to get feedback on many areas.

According to him, this was the first time when the said new things have been added to the core gameplay. The areas that they really want you to look into with the Halo 5 Guardians beta are weapons tuning, map exploits and the new abilities.

Moreover, Tim Longo, the creative director of the game also dropped a line about a new game mode, other than Breakout as well as some more additions that are being made to the game:

Some of the new modes we are testing, like Breakout and another new mode that we are not talking about at this point will add something new to the game and we’re hoping to get feedback on. I think there’s [sic] a lot of things that we can get feedback on and react to.

Halo 5 Guardians beta is going to start on December 29, 2014 and is going to run until January 18. How many of you have bought Halo Master Chief Collection to get your hands on the beta?
