A new blog post also details plans for 'Halo 5' at Gamescom.

It's only a matter of time before zombies start taking over 'Halo: The Master Chief Collection' multiplayer, according to a new developer blog post.

In a post on Halo Waypoint, developer 343 Industries notes that "it's quite likely" that news of Halo's 'Infection' multiplayer game mode will come out "in the coming weeks" for MCC fans. The team has steadily added more multiplayer options into the Xbox One anthology, most recently adding the popular Action Sack playlist.

In 'Infection'—first added in 'Halo 3' then returning in 'Halo: Reach'—noninfected players focus on staying alive while the zombies recruit more players to the undead team by killing them.

The Waypoint blog post then goes into what Gamescom attendees can expect to see from 'Halo 5,' including an invitational tournament that will show off two of the upcoming game's maps, Empire and Fathom.

The post finishes with a brief history of the design of the Warzone Power Core in 'Halo 5' multiplayer. It's the ultimate victory condition in the Warzone game mode; destroying it nets that team an instant win, no matter how many points the other team was leading by at the time.
