A new title update for Halo 5: Guardians is now available. The update, which you will be prompted to download for free the next time you start up Halo 5, adds Big Team Battle into the multiplayer suite.

Big Team Battle brings teams of 8 players together to face off against another team of 8. The addition of Big Team Battle brings with it four new maps designed for the mode. Starting now, players can duke it out on Basin, Deadlock, Guillotine, and Recurve. To get a glimpse of these maps, look at the gallery below.

This update also introduces 48 new REQ items including new weapons, weapon skins, armor, player emblems, and a new assassination. The REQs won't be showing up right away, as it takes some time for them to be introduced into the rotation, but you can see the full list of items coming as a part of this update through the graphic below.

The Battle of Shadow and Light title update is available now for free to all those who own Halo 5. If you still haven't picked up the latest title in Xbox's flagship franchise, you can check out our review to learn more about what it brings to the table.
