With just weeks to go before its release, Microsoft gave Australian gamers the chance to try out Halo 5: Guardians’ multiplayer at EBX 2015. The next instalment in the Halo franchise, Guardians is the first of the series’ main line of games to be exclusive to the Xbox One.
Before continuing, I would like to point out that all multiplayer DLC maps will be made available free of charge. According to the rep that briefed us, this decision was made so that all players have an equal chance of playing against one another.
The game’s multiplayer sees the introduction of the new REQ system, whereby players can earn credits to requisition equipment for use on the battlefield. These are divided into three categories: cosmetic, permanent gear, and one-use items.
