Interesting how a dev can create the illusion that they are giving you new free content when they simply don't include any of the content that should have been there since the launch of the game. At this rate they just might finish making Halo 5 by the time Halo 6 comes out

@Donkey

Lol. They give free content and yet you complain. If it was barebones at launch the community would have since dried up and abandoned the game but yet the community keeps growing and the number of Halo players online has been very robust since launch. I hope they keep giving us free stuff until Halo 6 arrives.

Great job 343i

Halo 5 was absolutely barebones at launch, and the community has dried up and abandoned the game. Why do you think 343 recently had to remove region lock for Halo 5? Because the game doesn't have the numbers to support it. Halo 5 can barely hold 10th place on Xbox Live most played games, compared to say Halo: Reach which never fell below 3rd place until Halo 4 came out.

Halo 5 at launch had hardly any content. A 4 hour campaign, Arena with only a few playlists/gametypes, and Warzone with only 3 maps. No Forge, no Firefight, no split screen, missing many game types like KotH, Oddball, Assault, Grifball, Infection, BTB, etc. No Campaign Theater, no file browser, no daily/weekly challenges, very limited customization options for Armor, Emblems, etc. compared to previous games... do I need to go on? These are all things Halo fans expect to be there at the launch of a new Halo game.

The Forge they did eventually release can hardly even be called Forge, it's more like some sort of dev tool, with overly complicated controls, no prefab buildings, missing a lot of standard Forge pieces, no trait zones, etc. The whole point of Forge in the past was that it was supposed to be easy to use so that anybody could go make their own maps.

343 shouldn't be praised for giving out this "free content" all they're doing is giving us content that should've been there at launch. They released an unfinished game, and here we are 6 months later and the game still isn't finished.
