Built from the ground up to take advantage of the Xbox One and Xbox Live, Halo 5: Guardians is the next installment of the legendary sci-fi franchise, from developer 343 Industries. It features the most ambitious campaign and multiplayer experience in franchise history, all running at 60 frames per second on dedicated servers.
In Halo 5: Guardians, a mysterious and unstoppable force threatens the galaxy, the Master Chief is MIA, his loyalty is under question, and it’s time for you to hunt the truth. Featuring epic worlds and epic battles on an epic scale, Halo 5: Guardians’ riveting campaign weaves a dramatic story full of new and fan-favorite characters and enemies that will forever change the Halo universe. The Master Chief and Blue Team have gone missing, and tasked to hunt them down is the UNSC’s elite man hunter – Spartan Locke and Fireteam Osiris. As the pursuit continues, they begin to unravel the mystery behind an unstoppable force that threatens the entire galaxy.
It’s the next evolution of Halo combat, evolving the series’ core gameplay with new and improved movement and gunplay, and powerful Spartan Abilities that deepen the battlefield experience with an even-more-dynamic arsenal.
