Halo 5 has separate saves for Co-op campaign
The Halo franchise is one of the best FPS shooters in the industry with its unique story campaign (one of the best, or even the best) including its unique touch with its gameplay that always put the player at the edge of the seat.
Halo 5: Guardians is currently under devolvement by the amazing 343 devs, which is still scheduled to launch this October. In the news dev blog, new information has been revealed the co-op campaign will have a separate save file from your single-player file, with that they’re also running on dedicated servers for Xbox One.
“Within the campaign for Halo 5 there are two distinct modes of play – solo and co-operative – and each mode has its own separate save file. When you start a co-op session, you control the leader of each Fireteam (The Master Chief or Spartan Locke). From there you can invite friends to join your session, and they do so seamlessly. Co-op games run on dedicated servers, allowing friends to seamlessly join and take over control of another member of your Fireteam.
“There is no interruption to the play experience. The new player simply joins the game, chooses a character (from one of the male or female teammates), and assumes control. Any achievements, collectibles or skulls unlocked during a co-op session are granted to all of the players present at that time. If at some point in the session a friend needs to leave, they can simply drop-out without interruption and the AI takes over seamlessly, so you can continue with your game,” 343 Industries wrote.
A lot of people including myself were truly disappointed of Halo 5 not having co-op split screen, as I enjoyed playing the co-op campaign in the Halo franchise with friends and family, it was one the first game (Halo: Combat Evolved) that turned me into a game addict, playing the co-op campaign with my brother was just fun and gave a unique experience than playing alone. With that I would rather have co-op sacrificed for a better gameplay experience.
343 said co-op has been a major influencer in the development of Halo 5 and it has been that on a massive scale.
“This creative pillar has influenced many decisions throughout the game’s technology and design. While you can still expect the same great single-player experience that Halo campaigns have been known for, engaging in co-operative play gives the campaign a new level of depth and richness,” 343 wrote.
Halo 5: Guardians will be launched on Oct. 20 exclusively for the Xbox One.Got comments? Post them here!
