Today's update to Halo 5: Guardians adds a long-requested feature to Xbox One and Windows 10: a custom games browser. The new browser allows players to search for in-progress games from the main menu, customizing search parameters by specific maps, modes or players. It's been a long time coming, considering Halo 5 debuted in October 2015.

"This Custom Games Browser is something the team has wanted to add for a long time for the community, but we needed the Content Browser and the search engine that powers it up and running first," 343 UX Design Lead Vincent Hui says in a blog post. "Thanks for being patient."

Today's update also adds an Observer mode, and it enables the Forge map editing tool and Arena multiplayer mode in Windows 10, though the desktop version still doesn't include matchmaking. Get the full details in both of 343's blog posts, here and here.
