343 Industries will continue to offer its newest free post-launch content for “Halo 5: Guardians” over the course of next few months. December is no exception as the developer prepares some hefty updates for the upcoming free content for “Halo 5: Guardians.”

Dubbed as the Cartographer’s Gift, the latest DLC was first announced at The Award Show. One of the major features coming out is the Forge Mode, a feature that has been requested by fans of “Halo 5: Guardians.”

The new DLC is a latest free update after November’s The Battle of Shadow and Light DLC. Along with the DLC, there will be 30 new REQs for existing players, announced via the Xbox Wire. The package includes new Big Team Battle (Antifreeze and Entombed) maps, a new Warzone (Battle of Noctus) and Arena (Overgrowth) as well. The popular Forge mode is completely redesigned by the developer to make the creation suite easier to use. The designers will also get many objects and tools to try their hands on.

“Halo 5: Guardians” is an exclusive launch for Xbox One landed in Xbox Store in October. 343 Industries is consistently supporting the game since beginning as the game was lacking in content at launch compared to previous titles of Halo. Already, the developer has added a huge amount of content, with all the previous updates offered for free.

The release of “Halo 5: Guardians” has given a new life to Xbox One sales and feedback. For some fans, it has even become one of the best reasons to get a Xbox One.

More than the Xbox One sales, the game is also seeing a lot of support and positive reception from professional players. The Halo World Championship is already slated to begin on Dec. 6. It will be a global event, with participants coming from areasincluding Australia, Africa, Greater Asia, Canada, Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, New Zealand and the U.S.

Last month, the prize pool for the “Halo 5” World Championship was increased to US$ 1.5 million (approx. AU$2.04 million). Now it has reached close to US$ 2 million (approx. AU$ 2.7 million). The official Halo Twitter announced that the number even continues to grow. Microsoft promised that a share of all REQ Pack sales made in “Halo 5: Guardians” will contribute to the prize money for this championship.

No specific release date for the DLC has been announced during the event. However, as it is a December update, the Cartographer’s Gift for “Halo 5: Guardians” may launch sometime within the next few weeks.
