You've waited years for this update. Now, it's finally happening.

I know that most of you will be pretty underwhelmed by this trailer, since the HaloTracks community already knows about HT 5.0. This trailer is absolutely geared towards members of the Halo community that do not yet know about the fifth version of HaloTracks. I'll give a quick rundown of what this update is for the newcomers out there.

The Largest Update in HaloTracks History

HaloTracks version 5.0, commonly abbreviated to HT 5.0, is the largest and most comprehensive undertaking that our community has ever done. The entire face of HaloTracks is changing. We're bringing in applications we've made ourselves, most notably an intricate system in which to post your Forge maps and compete on those maps for glory.

Our new maps application is tailored to racetrack forgers and enthusiasts alike. HT Maps offers support for different genres of racetracks, ways to filter only the tracks you want to see, user ratings, map statistics, and so much more. I kind of have to end things there. There's so much we're pouring into this application alone, that it would take quite a long time to detail everything.

HT Tournaments is arguably the backbone of HT 5.0. Essentially, this system is akin to Matchmaking in Halo... but for racing. The only thing it lacks is the ability to actually search for players, since we would need an actual game to do that. Within the tournament system, we've included an intricate skill system, progression for rankings, leaderboards, multiple tournament formats, and some of the most powerful hosting tools you'll find on this side of the galaxy.

All of this is designed by Jeffrey Heral (Le Hefe) and is developed by Aaron Siciliano (Hatter is Mad). As always, make sure you give Hatter your thanks. The technology we're implementing into this update isn't the easiest thing in the world to create. He's worked extremely hard to get this thing to where it is now.

This is a quick rundown of HT 5.0, but there's so much more it has to offer. The hype train is underway, so please check back often for potential updates!

Quick disclaimer, we have no concrete schedule for releasing updates. Information is released as soon as it's finalized.

Thank you for reading, and we look forward to HT 5.0's release in 2016!
