How many players can play Halo 5: Guardians locally (couch co-op)?

Unfortunately Halo 5 does not support couch co-op play. The reason for this was given due to technical limitations.

 

How many players can play Halo 5: Guardians via system link or LAN?

LAN play is also not supported in Halo 5. The reason was once again technical, with the game heavily relying on Microsoft's Xbox Live service and dedicated servers.

 

How many players can play Halo 5: Guardians online?

Up to four players can play the campaign online in co-op.

 

Is there drop-in and drop-out play for co-op in Halo 5: Guardians

Yup! You can invite a friend at anytime.

 

How do you begin a co-op session in Halo 5: Guardians? Is there match making?

Go to the menu, choose campaign, and then select co-op. Invite some friends and get rolling. Sadly there is no match making functionality, instead AI bots will fill in the spots that aren't occupied by players.

 

How does save game progress work for co-op play in Halo 5: Guardians?

Any missions you complete, intel you pick up or skulls collected by anyone within a co-op game are credited to all players. If you skip missions from the campaign by playing co-op, those that you completed are still choosable to replay.

 

Can I join a game if the host is further along than me in Halo 5: Guardians?

Yes, that isn't a problem. Though you may have some things spoiled for you.

 

What does the Halo 5: Guardians season pass get you?

There's no season pass for Halo 5: Guardians, instead the game utilizes a Requisition system for permanent and temporary character unlocks and for use in Warzone, a 12 vs 12 competitive mode. These packs may be purchased with in-game currency or real world currency. As of now there are currently 15 planned DLC maps which will be released for free for Halo 5: Guardians.

 

What is Warzone: Firefight?

Warzone: Firefight is Halo 5's take on the popular co-op mode that was introduced with Halo 3: ODST. Eight players will take on five waves of enemies with various objectives that could involved killing bosses, killing a certain number of enemies, and defending certain control points from destruction. The Warzone REQ system is at use for spawning weapons, vehicles and power-ups.
