With Master Chief all but confirmed for Fortnite, we just cannot wait for more Halo content.

We’ll likely be getting a Chief Skin, UNSC Pelican Glider, a Gravity Hammer pickaxe and a cute Lil’ Warthog emote.

Though we may also be getting an LTM along with it all too!

And it's a classic Halo game mode, Capture the flag coming in Chapter 2 Season 5.


Release Date Revealed - December 11

In the Blood Gulch reveal trailer below, we also learnt that the Capture the Flag LTM and Blood Gulch Map are arriving very soon. Today in fact!

December 11 at 10AM ET / 3PM GMT. Keep an eye out for the update when it drops.

Still nothing official yet, but we couldn't be more excited to see if this is true!

What is Capture the Flag?

Capture the flag is exactly as it sounds, you have to capture your enemy’s flag.

Each team has a base and a flag, to score a point you have to bring the enemy team’s flag back to your base while keeping hold of your own.

The mode was made popular by Halo, and featured as an ongoing gag in the early days of Halo content, such as fan series Red Vs Blue!

Exactly how the mode will work in Fortnite is to be seen, but hopefully, we’ll see a Blood Gulch inspired map. We can dream!

The Halo event/LTM SHOULD be coming out with the 15.10 update. (Could be subject to change)
