This Week in Halo!

News - Issue 1 BC.png

This week in Halo, Halo 3 turns 10 years old, it having launched today on September 25 2007. Happy birthday, you brought us all joy for the last ten years, and we thank you and Bungie for crafting the experience. So sometime this week we should all pop in Halo 3 to experience the game again, I know we will. To link onto this a big piece of news is a bunch of Xbox 360 Halo games join Halo Reach in being backwards compatible. Halo 3 being one of those games, alongside Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. This is great news as it means you can customize your Spartans again, you can play firefight in ODST, and you can play all your old forge maps. You can read more about it here in the Halo Waypoint Community Update: Back Mentality.

We got given Patch Notes for Halo Wars 2 for September 26 where two new multiplayer maps are being added (among other bug fixes, and balancing). Mirage, and Fissure. We cant wait to try them out. You can read the all the patch notes here.

Awakening the Nightmare also comes out this week, and Ready Up Live has you covered with the first mission of the DLC campaign. Note if you want to experience Awakening the Nightmare blind do not watch this video. Video here. Again Warning Spoilers.

Community News

This will be short this week as we are getting started but to get us started we are going to show Halo canon(Toa Freaks) newest video, The Halo Array - Halo 101 where he goes over the Halo Array and tells us a few new revelations about it from when he visited 343 Industries. I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed watching it ourselves, cause a lot of it is brand new.
