Halo 5: Guardians’ multiplayer has been talked about a lot in recent months, especially following the public beta in early 2015. However, the public multiplayer beta was only for one half of the multiplayer – Arena. For three years, 343 Industries has been working on a brand new multiplayer mode which Kevin Franklin says “incorporates all aspects of the Halo sandbox” for the first time in the franchise’s history.

Rumors have been running rampant about what this new mode is with ideas such as space battles, a bigger “Big Team Battle” experience or even some variation of faction wars.

During the Xbox E3 2015 briefing, 343 Industries finally revealed this brand new game mode to us and you can checkout the first exclusive look at it below:

Warzone is a new 24-player multiplayer mode which incorporates both the story and multiplayer into one huge setting allowing for some intense lore-filled gameplay.

Halo 5: Guardians is set to release on October 27th, 2015 exclusively on the Xbox One. Players will be able to pre-order the game on the Xbox Games Store sometime this week.
