In a Games Radar interview with the Official Xbox Magazine, 343 Industries studio head Josh Holmes talked about the game’s new co-op mechanic, how it came to be, and more about the new “Halo”.
Apparently, the idea for the four-player co-op started by the time of “Halo 4″.”We were winding down on Halo 4 and thinking about moving to a new console, and we had already planned some of the technological upgrades that we wanted to make to the engine,” said Holmes. “And early on we started talking about the types of stories that we wanted to tell and the experiences that we wanted to create, and we really wanted to focus on a much more sociable experience, especially in our campaign.”
This gave birth to the squads in “Halo 5″the Blue Team led by Master Chief, and Fireteam Osiris led by a new character, Agent Locke.
“I think co-op has always been a big part of Halo’s campaign, but in the past it’s sort of been treated as a completely separate experience, where you just have three other clones of the Master Chief running side by side,” Holmes said. “The narrative breaks down. One of the big creative goals that we had for Halo 5 was to bring that into focus and support it through the story.”
“Halo 5: Guardians” comes to Xbox One on October 27.
