Microsoft has announced today that the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians has gone gold, certifying the final retail version that will ship to store shelves.
Those who have pre-purchased a digital copy of the game will be able to pre-load both the game itself and a multiplayer content patch, while those with physical copies will need to patch before being able to play online.

Halo 5: Guardians will be released for Xbox One on Oct. 27, 2015. Keep it tuned here for more coverage and our review of the blockbuster shooter.
