The Halo 5: Guardians theme music has leaked online along with the first images of its menu for Warzone mode. The leak came as part of an update to the game’s beta, which was thought to have been discontinued. The Halo 5: Guardians beta isn’t playable, but one user was able to record the music and put it in a video on Youtube. Microsoft has since confirmed that the leak is legitimate.

The Halo 5: Guardians beta was launched in December 2014. Once it concluded, it was put away for good. But for some reason, according to the Halo Memes Youtube channel, the beta got an update that added the music for the game’s main menu. Most of Halo 5: Guardian’s soundtrack was composed by Kazuma Jinnouchi, a veteran composer who previously worked on Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns Of The Patriots. Anybody who took part in the beta and still had the client installed on their computers had the update automatically added and should now have access to the leaked music.

Meanwhile, images of the menu screen for the 12 vs 12 Warzone mode leaked via NeoGAF. The post also included a video of the menu. The images show off the title screen for Warzone, as well as a few of the options in the menu, including customization for armour and weapons.

Microsoft confirmed the leaked music and images were real in a statement (via Gamespot). “It’s unfortunate when work-in-progress content leaks, but this Halo 5: Guardians content is part of our ongoing private, external testing for multiplayer. We will continue to rigorously test Halo 5: Guardians to ensure the best possible experience for fans at launch.”

The original multiplayer beta for Halo 5 was launched almost a year before the game’s scheduled release, with 343 eager to start ironing out any kinks early on. Halo 5: Guardians will launch October 27, 2015 exclusively for Xbox One.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
