Default Halo 5

New details coming from Game Informer.
  • 20 MP maps at launch
  • No split screen
  • Drop in/out online co-op.
  • 15 DLC maps by June '16, all free.
  • XBL Gold not required for Co-op.
  • Alternate paths in campaign levels
  • Single player has squad commands like Republic Commando
  • Big Team Battle to be replaced by "new epic multiplayer experience".

They're obviously trying to win people back with all the MP stuff but nonetheless... fuck.

I forgot CoD splits its DLC maps into dedicated playlists until the AW ones started to come out, and it made me pass on buying any of it.

I wasn't totally sold on what little I played of the beta but this is all pretty exciting to me.

I've always wished Halo would go more the route of Battlefield with larger vehicle based combat.

I prefer the old deathmatch style combat. It's what makes Halo...Halo. I honestly never want to see it go that way.

I'm assuming that's why they're making co-op free on Live.

Probably not. Never was a fan of Halo's mp anyways. Just felt like I was playing a slower Unreal Tournament with less interesting weapons.

Unsure on squad commands, it typically hasn't worked very well in other titles and the AI does not do what I want them to do all the time

You fucked up, MS.

Online co-op requires gold after all. The game will come with a 14 day trial but that seems fairly standard, yes?

That sucks but I was going to keep my gold membership going for Gears anyway.
