To help you party, <mark>we’ll be turning on Global Double XP all month</mark> long <mark>and gifting a free Greatest Hits Customization Pack to anyone who logs in on October 27 for Halo 5’s 5th Anniversary</mark>. I don’t think we’ll ever be able to thank you enough for your love and support over the past five years, but we certainly can amp up the rewards to try!

Update for October 2020 and Halo 5’s 5th Anniversary

I posted a little about this last month in the post above, but the recent community update has announced a live stream, details are below!

> On top of our on-going Global Double XP celebrations, we’ll also be hosting a Community Playdate and gifting out a free Greatest Hits Customization Pack to anyone who logs in on the special day. In this Haloween Community Playdate, you can hunt down GrimBrotherOne and I (Unyshek) in matchmaking while we wear Halloween costumes, fight to survive, and give out the elusive Ice Unicorn Skins (H5) & Nameplates (MCC). Tune in to the stream for tricks, Killionaires, and hopefully some treats live on Twitch and YouTube starting at 3pm PT!

Live for the holidays now!
