By Lexley Ford, 5 months ago

A slew of new screenshots for the upcoming "Memories of Reach" DLC have been released. Check out images of the new Spartans, Stasis map, and REQ packs below.

Original Story

The latest free content release for Halo 5: Guardians – “Memories of Reach” – will be launching sometime this month, bringing with it the return of the Infection game mode, the new Stasis Arena map, as well as new weapons and visual customizations. Many of these additions were detailed towards the end of last month, including an extensive list of weapon balance updates, but 343 Industries are keeping the information flowing and have released a selection of new details.

New multiplayer game mode – Infection. Band together with your fellow survivors or hunt your prey with cunning and skill; the highly anticipated Infection game mode is making its way to Halo 5: Guardians! In Infection, 12 players face off in a round-based game mode, where the initial Infected player aims to convert the survivors into Infected via elimination.

New Arena Map – Stasis. Greedy for knowledge and prestige, researchers and AIs from Lethbridge Industrial pushed the boundaries at a remote research station, but the price of failure always tempered the risks they would take. Stasis is a mid-sized map that combines elements of symmetric sides with moderate asymmetrical features, giving it a hybrid design that’s unique to Halo 5: Guardians’ Arena multiplayer.

New REQ items. Memories of Reach brings several new REQs that are sure to give you a nostalgic kick, with Noble Team coming back together in the Indomitable, Intruder, Vigilant and Wrath armor sets. Also included are new weapon skins, the Brute Plasma Rifle, assassinations, and legendary Phaeton Helios variant.
There is no set date at the moment, but “Memories of Reach” should be hitting consoles in the next few weeks. As with previous update releases, the content update will automatically download and install as soon as it becomes available. Those wanting to get a closer look at the update before it goes live can do so by watching the “Memories of Reach” update preview via livestream on Wednesday, April 11 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. PDT at twitch.tv/halo and the Halo Channel.
