Welcome to the monthly newsletter, here you will see Xbox, Halo and Community News from the past month.
** Games with Gold **
August 2016 will see the Games with Gold roster take on four newcomers – and four fantastic games, at that. As with last month, Xbox One will get two dedicated titles, and two Xbox 360 titles, as well, through Xbox One Backward Compatibility, for a total of four completely free titles thanks to Games with Gold. Xbox 360 gamers, of course, also get access to the latter two titles.
For Xbox One, August brings two fantastic titles to Games with Gold with the exciting Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate and the blockbuster wrestling game WWE 2K16. On the Xbox 360 (and Xbox One through Backward Compatibility), Xbox Live Gold members start the month with the critically-acclaimed Spelunky, and then follow that with the classic Beyond Good & Evil HD.
** Backwards Compatible Games in July **
Since the release of Xbox One Backward Compatibility with the New Xbox One Experience it has been one of the most popular features included in the update. Xbox fans have been enjoying the opportunity to play some of their favorite Xbox 360 titles on their Xbox One, with more titles being added regularly to the list of available games.

Halo 5 News
** Latest REQ Drop **
No more DLC/REQ Drop for the foreseeable future, and not a lot of news either about what’s to come. On other Halo related news; 343 teams are hard at work on the next content release for Halo 5, which includes the Halo 5 Content Browser and the release of Forge on Windows 10. This will be landing around the same time, and we will have more information about all of these within the next month.
Lastly, the HCS NA Summer Finals took place this past weekend. For a full recap, head over to Halo Waypoint: https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/news ... recap#menu

HWM Community News
** Warzone Meta **
For this Month Newsletter, we will look at the Meta for the newest map on Warzone, Attack on Sanctum. Additionally, we have a new Ops Guide: How to kill a boss written by Witney.
Here a few things to note with regards to Attack on Sanctum:
- Containment – Instead of clearing the first boss, instead push directly to the temple.
- Assault – Same push to the temple, however, take lift over attic and cross and cover from attic on the enemies’ side
- Backup – Push through the bottom of Temple and attack/cover the left side to complement Assault and Containment
As we evolve and make changes, keep an eye on the Attack on Sanctum Discussion Thread for more information. Feel free to post any ideas.
On a separate topic, don’t forget to check the full write up and highlights from the HWM Hell Jumpers vs Absolution X games, by Sarge. You can read this here
