Look up to the skies
Halo 5: Guardians developer 343 Industries has included a tribute for a fan who lost his children in a tragic accident in the latest update.
Community member Adam (thecrzedspartan) lost his two girls, Trinity and Lena, in an electrical fire last month.
To honour Adam’s children, if you look up into the sky whilst playing new map Torque, you’ll see their names written in the stars.
New emblem True Light – which has been rolled out to all players in this month’s free update – also celebrates the lives of the girls, their initials glowing gently in the background of the animated emblem.
“In the days following the tragedy, it was inspiring to see the Halo community come together to support Adam and Rebecca in a variety of ways,” writes 343i’s Josh on Halo Waypoint update.
“In honor of Adam’s family and his daughters, Trinity and Lena, we’ve created the Spartans Never Walk Alone pack. This pack contains the True Light emblem, which is named after the first initial of each of his daughters’ names, and is the first animated emblem to come to Halo 5. All players will receive this pack as part of this month’s free update.”
“These are but small gestures meant to honor Adam’s daughters, ensuring that their memories are always close at hand within the universe he loves.”
Hammer Storm brings three free new modes to Halo 5: Guardians, as well as a new map, new weapons, and a load of new REQ goodies including new assassination animations, weapon skins, loadout weapons, emblems, visors, and armour.
