The upcoming Halo 5: Guardians from 343 Industries may just be a few weeks away from the final release, but fans still have a lot of questions regarding the new title.
343's Josh Holmes recently answered some questions regarding the new game on Twitter. Going by what was announced in the Twitter Q&A, it looks like good times are ahead for Halo fans.
On the topic of how 343 Industries intends to keep the game's content fresh, long after it has been officially released, Holmes stated, "We'll have new maps, modes, hundreds of new REQs (Requisition System) and more." He added that there are going to be new weapons, armour and skins.
As far as REQ is concerned, the developer was also asked whether there is a specific cap to how much REQ a player could earn. Holmes answered that once players hit the level cap, they will be able to continue earning REQ by playing the multiplayer, and that they will also be able to use the earned points for REQ packs.
Another big question on everybody's minds is whether the game will have some sort of cloud support, since Microsoft had mentioned cloud computing a number of times since this year's E3. According to Holmes, the developer has indeed put this into the game as an aid, as far as multiplayer maps for coop games are concerned.
More details of the new Halo are expected to arrive ahead of the game's final release. As of now, Halo 5: Guardians is set to release on the Xbox One on 27 October.
