Grifball, Asssault and Fiesta Return in Halo 5 February Update

gamrFeed - 3 hours 49 min ago

 Three classic Halo game modes are returning to Halo 5: Guardians in the February update. All three game modes use TheBall.

The three game modes are Grifball, Assault, and Fiesta.

    "Grifball has seen many variations over the last few games and this time, we wanted to make sure we got it right," said 343 Industries. "We called in the leading expert on all things Grifball, Jeffrey “Nokyard” Fischer. We flew Nokyard out to the studio a few months before we started development of the mode to make sure that we understood exactly what is important to Grifballers.   "We had many design discussions with Nokyard and he even built the first Halo 5 Grifball Court which will be launching alongside the mode this update (it’s unlike any Grifball court you have ever seen before). Nok worked with our Weapons Designer, Daniel Wiksten, on trying to get the damage and impulse blast of the hammer to feel right. This collaboration helped us hammer out (pun intended) the delicate balance of Gravity Hammer vs. Sword vs. Ball that Grifball so heavily relies upon.   "We leveraged Nokyard’s wealth of Grifball knowledge to try to make the most exciting Grifball yet, complete with thrusting Grif, Ground Pound kills, and ball throwing. Playing Grifball during playtests over the last few months has been some of the most fun we have had in the new building."
Thanks Halo Waypoint.
