    Today, voting closed on Halo Nation's community vote on whether to leave Wikia, with the final votes tallying to 13 in support, compared to 2 in opposition. As a result, Halo Nation will be leaving Wikia and merging with Halopedia!

    In the coming weeks, we will be executing the plan we laid out in our blog post, exactly as it was voted on by the community. The wiki that remains here, at halo.fandom.com, will be renamed and given a new logo and theme. Meanwhile, all of Halo Nation's content will be copied to a temporary wiki and merged into Halopedia's existing content on a case-by-case basis. For a more in-depth explanation of what will be happening, please see the plan outlined on Halopedia here, and on Halo Nation here.

    As we announced here two weeks ago, several members of the admin team have become quite frustrated with the actions, policies and attitudes of Fandom in recent years, prompting a lot internal discussions and planning. This has led us here: we do not think that it is a worthwhile endeavour to continue working on a wiki hosted by Fandom, which prompted us to seek a vote on whether we should migrate our community and its content to Halopedia. Below, we have outlined our proposed plans for this merger, and detailed what we believe to be the pros and cons of said plans.

    Halopedia's vote on whether or not it would accept a merger with Halo Nation has recently concluded with a vast majority in favour of accepting us. As a result, we are now ready …

    For a while now, most of the Halo Nation administration, myself included, have been discontent with the changes Fandom/Wikia has been making (and intends to make) to the wikis they host, including Halo Nation. Additionally and more importantly, the decision-making process behind these changes rarely seems to include input from the users and editors of the affected wikis, and in some cases (such as with the negative reception to featured videos on Halo Nation) actively disregards such feedback. All of this, combined with the recent introduction featured videos and upcoming changes such as the removal of Forums in favour of Discussions, the domain change from halo.wikia.com to halo.fandom.com and the nebulous Unification initiative, has led us …

    Yesterday, Halo Wars 2s latest piece of DLC, Halo Wars 2: Awakening the Nightmare, was released. It contains an entirely new campaign, a cooperative multiplayer mode known as Terminus Firefight and two new leaders: Pavium and Voridus. In addition, as part of the update that brings Awakening the Nightmare, two new multiplayer maps, Mirage and Fissures, were added to the game. Both new maps are available free to all players, but the new leaders, Awakening the Nightmare campaign and Terminus Firefight are limited to owners of the DLC only.

    Awakening the Nightmares campaign stars the two new leaders, the Brute brothers Pavium and Voridus, in five entirely new campaign missions (and three Blur cutscenes). Under orders from Atriox, the two Jiralhanae …

    Today, after almost three months of eager anticipation, the remainder of the Xbox 360's catalogue of Halo games is now available on Xbox One via backwards compatibility. As of less than two hours ago, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and Halo 4 can all be played on Xbox One, without requiring any additional purchases (provided you own the games on 360).

    As with all games on Xbox One, these games must be installed before they can be played. If you own a physical disk, simply insert it into your console and it will prompt you to install the game. Meanwhile, those who own digital copies will find the games waiting in the "Ready to install" section of the "Games & apps" program. Note, however, that digital copies of Halo: CEA are n…
