Halo 5 Firefight beta starts April 14th, Meridian update out today

Thought you were going to have to wait for Halo 5’s Warzone Firefight until the summer? Well, you don’t!

An open beta for all Halo 5 players will start April 14th and run through April 18th. The beta appears to have been included in today’s 8.3GB Meridian update.

Warzone Firefight will task 8 players with surviving 5 increasingly difficult waves of enemies. Players can use all of their REQs in this mode. With the beta essentially being a weekend playlist, you’ve got to wonder if Firefight will hit Halo closer to early summer in May or June rather than the August/September some of us expected.
