Halo 5 free to play this weekend with Xbox Live Gold

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at henry.stenhouse@allgamers.com or catch him on Twitter, here.

Jump back into the Chief and Cortana's latest outing.

You can give Halo 5: Guardians a try for free this weekend if you’ve got Xbox Live Gold.

The last main game in the series is available for Gold members running from now until Sunday, Jan 14.

Players have access to playing both Solo and Co-op, though we’d highly recommend jumping on with a friend or two if possible for the title’s less inspired campaign.

The full multiplayer suite is also available, letting players try out the 24-player Warzone mode.

If you take a liking to the Chief’s latest outing, Halo 5: Guardians is 20% off for the duration of the free weekend, and any progress you make in the trial will be carried over should you cough up the cash.
