The Xbox turned 15 yesterday, and that means 15 years of teabagging on Halo. The series has come a long way, shifting hands in the process from Bungie to 343 Industries, and its fan base has continued to grow. From multiple titles across multiple genres, TV shows, animated movies, books and more, it’s worth celebrating such an expansive series.
To celebrate 15 years of the Halo saga, 343 are offering fans a wealth of free content which you can begin to access just by logging into Halo 5 Guardians. “As a special token of thanks to Halo fans for fifteen years of support we’re happy to offer a very special anniversary Halo 5 REQ pack. Log in to Halo 5 any time between now and 11/22 to claim the following:”
- Mark IV Armor & Helmet
- 4 SPNKRs
- 4 CE Magnums
- 4 Halo 2 Beam Rifles
On top of that, you can also jump into the Halo 5 “Anniversary Throwback Playlist” for some old school action on some exquisitely crafted Forge creations hand crafted with love and care by members of the Halo community. Play 4v4 Team Slayer and CTF on re-creations of six classic Halo: Combat Evolved Maps re-imagined for Halo 5.
As for Forza Horizon 3, the latest in a long running series of top quality racing titles on Xbox, you can get your hands on a limited edition 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor complete with a custom livery celebrating Xbox’s 15th anniversary. If you’re a Forza VIP member, you get another truck with an alternate livery too.
There are also some bonus Bucket List and Rival challenges under the name of 15 year anniversary for both Forza 6 and Horizon 3. In Horizon, make your way to the Pink Lakes Bucket List point in the game.
