343 has announced new details for the Halo 5: Guardians beta, which will launch in December.

The beta will contain three modes, 11 weapons, seven maps and seven armour sets. The focus is apparently on classic 4v4 arena gameplay, and the maps are thus tailored for smallscale infantry combat rather than epic battles. All players will have the same loadouts to begin with.

You'll be able to carry over certain content from the beta to the final game. Additionally, the beta will receive dedicated coverage on the newly announced Halo Channel, a dashboard hub for Halo multiplayer, TV programming and community features.

Here's a trailer with early footage of a few of the game's map designs. What do you think? Can you deduce anything about the game's plot and setting?

Will be good to try the beta, the collection will keep me busy for a while though. Couple of them I want to try on legendary which I didn't first time round.
