Halo 5 opening cinematic
The opening cinematic for the Halo 5: Guardians campaign has been released.
Posted on the official Xbox YouTube channel, the video features Spartan Locke and Fireteam Osiris on a mission to recover a valuable target. They encounter Covenant and Promethean forces on the way, resulting in some action-heavy combat sequences.
Developer 343 Industries has confirmed that Halo 5 will launch with more than 20 multiplayer maps, and promised 15 more maps post-launch as free downloadable content packs before June 2016, although an Xbox Live Gold subscription will be required to access them.
The game will not include a split-screen mode. 343 Industries has described the removal of the feature as necessary to "deliver a true next-gen experience."
