Halo 5: Guardians single-player gameplay, Warzone reveal

New 24-player online multiplayer mode.

Halo 5: Guardians

Microsoft debuted the first single-player gameplay of Halo 5: Guardians during its E3 2015 press conference this morning.

The footage shows Agent Locke, one of the game’s two main characters, moving forward with a team of three other people in four-player co-op.

In single-player, you’ll control two distinct Spartan squads, one led by Master Chief, one by Locke. But multiplayer will have just as big a scale, Microsoft promises, with a new “Warzone” 24-player mode, as well as AI-controlled adversaries and massive environments four-times the size of any previous Halo map. It’s playable at E3.

Halo 5: Guardians is due out for Xbox One on October 27.

Watch the footage below. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.
