As of the 29th of June, Halo 5 is available to play and download absolutely free for the week, following as part of Microsoft’s Free Play Days promo.

In celebration, Aaron Greenberg, marketing exec for Xbox, used a rather appropriate GIF.

Yep. Free to download, no strings, and after the seven days it will return to normal price.

This promotion comes just before the release of Halo’s biggest expansion ever, Warzone Firefight, which arrives as a free update to owners of the game already.

This is a rundown of what’s included:


The expansion will add game modes, weapons, skins, and maps to the most successful Halo game to date.

This will be the last free update to the game, as paid DLC will start to be released.
