    Today, after almost three months of eager anticipation, the remainder of the Xbox 360's catalogue of Halo games is now available on Xbox One via backwards compatibility. As of less than two hours ago, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and Halo 4 can all be played on Xbox One, without requiring any additional purchases (provided you own the games on 360).

    As with all games on Xbox One, these games must be installed before they can be played. If you own a physical disk, simply insert it into your console and it will prompt you to install the game. Meanwhile, those who own digital copies will find the games waiting in the "Ready to install" section of the "Games & apps" program. Note, however, that digital copies of Halo: CEA are n…

    Earlier today, the latest and final piece of DLC in the Halo Wars 2 Season Pass was released: a new leader called Yapyap the Destroyer. Yapyap is a Grunt who has led a revolution against the Banished, and he fields several units that are new to Halo Wars 2.

    Among Yapyap's arsenal are the Grunt Goblins, which act as his hero unit, and he can field up to three at any one time. Additionally, Yapyap has access to the Methane Wagon, a vehicle which (once unlocked from the leader power menu) can be trained from main base structures. He fields two new infantry units: the Brute Rider, a Grunt which rides on a Brute's back, and the Heavy Grunt, a squad of Grunts, one of which holds a Fuel Rod Gun. Finally, although not a unit, Yapyap is the first leade…

    Yesterday, two pieces of DLC dropped for Halo Wars 2: Operation Spearbreaker, a two mission long mini-campaign, and Serina, a new multiplayer leader.

    Operation Spearbreaker follows a squad of highly-trained ODSTs in their mission to save the from a Banished plot which threatens to destroy it. The squad, led by Major Vaughan, acts as a hero unit throughout the mini-campaign and contains a sniper, engineer armed with a Rocket Launcher, three ODSTs with Suppressed SMGs and a drone. Meanwhile, the antagonist of the story is Colony, a DLC leader introduced in April.

    Serina as a leader focuses on ice-related powers, similar to Anders in Halo Wars. In place of Hellbringers, Serina fields Cryo Troopers, who freeze their opponents rather than burn the…

    At this point, there's no point sidestepping the topic: Halo Nation has become somewhat outdated with much of the Halo material post-2011, outside of the video games. I believe that the wiki is no longer the reliable source for Halo information it should be, because of this fact.

    Being an admin, I feel it is my duty to at least try to help the wiki back onto its feet, and given that I have three months until I start at university, I feel that now is the best time to do so. However, updating the wiki is no easy task, hence why I'm starting Project Rebirth, named after the fictional project of the same name whose aim was to revitalise New Mombasa after the Human-Covenant war. In this blog, I will outline my plans for the project so that others can…

    In a huge barrage of Halo news that occured a little over an hour ago, several major announcements were made, at least one of which will interest every Halo fan in some way.

    Firstly, Halo 5: Guardians will be getting a 4K update for the release of Xbox One X. The title was absent from the list of games getting 4K updates that was presented at Xbox's E3 press conference, but 343 have stated that they were merely not yet ready to make an announcement. This means that Halo 5: Guardians and Halo Wars 2 will be the first Halo games to be playable at 4K resolution on consoles, when these updates roll out for Xbox One X users later this year.

    Next, and most important for some - including myself - comes the revelation that by the end of this year, every single …
