How To Play Halo 5 Guardians

On the departure from the Xbox 360 hardware, Ross noted that the Xbox One allows 343 Industries to broaden the game's scope, as its matchmaking and four-player online campaign co-op modes will utilize the console's dedicated server support.[7] Franchise development director Frank O'Connor explained that Halo 4 pushed its game engine to the limit, such that moving on to the Xbox One called for the development of a new engine.[8] Producer Josh Holmes stated Halo 5‍ '​s engine employs a "new progressive resolution system that allows us to dynamically scale the resolution at which we render the game" to guarantee it maintains a frame rate of 60 FPS; this is achieved by decreasing its resolution from 1080p during periods of intensive gameplay.[9] Unlike previous first-person shooters in the Halo franchise, Halo 5: Guardians will not feature any offline capabilities, including split-screen cooperative campaign and multiplayer modes; it will also not have any local networking options.[10] The removal of split-screen play has led to controversy among fans and several petitions to introduce local split-screen functionality to the game.

Heroes of Halo 5 Guardians

John-117 "Master Chief" is a fictional character and the protagonist of the Halo fictional universe created by Bungie. Master Chief is a playable character in the series of science fiction first-person shooter video games: Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, and Halo 5: Guardians. Outside of video games, the character appears in novels— Halo: The Fall of Reach, Halo: The Flood, Halo: First Strike, and Halo: Uprising —and has cameos in other Halo media, including Halo: Reach, Halo: Ghosts of Onyx, The Halo Graphic Novel, Halo Legends and Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. The character is a towering and faceless cybernetically-enhanced supersoldier, raised and trained from an early age to be a weapon; he is almost never seen without his green-colored armor and helmet. He is commonly referred to by his rank rather than his given name. The character is voiced by Steve Downes, a Chicago disc jockey, in the video games in which he appears. Downes based his personification of the Chief on an initial character sketch which called for a Clint Eastwood-type character of few words. The Master Chief is a video game icon, a relative newcomer among more established franchise characters, such as Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog and Lara Croft. The character has received a mostly positive reception. While some have described the Chief's silent and faceless nature as a weakness of the character, other publications have suggested these attributes better allows players to assume his role.
