Here's every single Halo 5: Guardians day one multiplayer playlist

It's two weeks to the day until Halo 5: Guardians (opens in new tab) makes its 60GB imprint on our hard drives (opens in new tab), and 343 has seen fit to tell us what we'll be getting on 27th October. As reported by IGN (opens in new tab), this is a list of the seven multiplayer playlists (so, crucially, not the entire multiplayer offering of the game) coming on day one - as well as the new, community-focused Weekend Social playlist.

Personally, I'm looking forward to getting my hands on Warzone Assault - as much as I love the MOBA indebted cut and thrust of a round of regular Warzone (opens in new tab), this asymmetrical variant - one team/army defending a core, and the other trying to destroy it by any means necessary - sounds like it could get delightfully messy.
