343 Industries has revealed the 50-plus new reqs for next week’s Cartographer’s Gift Expansion for X-box One for Halo 5:  Guardians.    Included are new weapons, armors and emblems including favorites like SPNKr Rocket Launcher and Mark IV armor, as well as some really cool, completely new equipment including the Raijin armor set.  You’ll have access to new assassination’s such as the ultra rare, “oh snap.”

Cartographer’s Gift will also give players access to one new Warzone map called Battle of Noctus.  There are also three new environments:  Overgrowth, Entombed and Antifreeze.   Forge Mod will also be added which will include features like improved control scheme, multi-select/edit, free camera, precision editings, and that’s just the start.

Earlier this year, 343 had this to say about Forge Mode.  “The creativity of the Forge community knows no bounds and our goal was to give them more power and control than ever before. We wanted to remove as many constraints as possible so they can create high quality maps that rival the ones that we are shipping with the game.”

As of now, Cartographer’s Gift will be free and there is not a set release date for it.  In the meantime, check out the image below for the details of the update:
