So how many local players are allowed for the Beta

I heard a dreadful rumor that the beta for Halo 5: Guardians will only support 1 player per console, or it won’t have split screen. All I want to know is if it’s true.

If it is, that is a giant -Yoink- you from 343, and I will not stand for it. We all know of the significant frame rate drops that plague both HMCC & Halo 4 on split screen, which is why 343 needs to include a split screen test in the beta, or suffer the consequences of another lackluster launch. Many players (myself included) depend on split screen to be able to play the game, and if it doesn’t work, why even bother?

If the rumor isn’t true, I have no issue and will happily test Halo 5. However, I’m very worried that the rumor will turn out to be reality.

If you know anything that I don’t or want to share your thoughts, don’t hesitate!

Why do I need split screen?

Because I only have one Xbox and I play it with my brother.

I’d also like to play H5G without having to talk turns, because you know, that sucks for both of us. There is no excus whatsoever for not including split screen.

The Halo 5 Beta will most likely not have local split-screen. Why? Because the game is in 720p. The final game will be in 1080p, which means that 343i isn’t done on a technical standpoint. It will be a lot easier to add split-screen straight from 1080p instead of starting at 720p and having to recalibrate it after the Beta.
There is also the fact that split-screen is not a priority for this Beta. 343i is only seeing if people like the new additions.

The final game will of course have split-screen.
