See Halo 5's new Warzone Firefight mode in action

Warzone Firefight offers the most onscreen enemies in Halo franchise history.

As part of the Halo World Championship event tonight, Microsoft released the first trailer for Halo 5's new Warzone Firefight mode. The mode, first seen in Halo 3: ODST, is PvE-themed and was announced back in February. A single screenshot was released in March, but this is the first trailer.

Check out the new video below.

Warzone Firefight builds on Halo 5's massive-scale Warzone mode and goes further, as players will take on waves of increasingly difficult enemies and objectives.

"In Warzone Firefight, up to eight players will work together to complete five rounds of increasingly difficult, dynamic objectives set against a timer to emerge victorious," 343 explained.

343 went on to reveal that Warzone Firefight will have "more enemies than ever." This include a new "Mythic" tier of enemy bosses.

"Thought the Warden Eternal was menacing? You ain't seen nothing yet," Microsoft said. "Warzone Firefight features the most onscreen enemies in the history of the franchise, making for frantic and exhilarating matches."

Warzone Firefight also provides players will "full access" to all of their Reqs -- these can include things like weapons, vehicles, armor, power-ups and more.
