Microsoft offered more information on the upcoming multiplayer beta for Halo 5: Guardians, which will be available for people who buy Halo: The Master Chief Collection on the Xbox One. The beta will last from December 29 to January 18 and will concentrate on arena multiplayer modes. Microsoft says:
"Featuring intense 4 vs. 4 showdowns, arena combat in Halo 5: Guardians will start players with the same loadout, ensuring matches are perfectly balanced and competitive. The Multiplayer Beta includes seven maps and three game types, as well as a variety of different armor sets to customize your Spartan with."
It will also support dedicated servers and run at 60 frames per second. Microsoft also announced that Sanctuary will be one of the remastered multiplayer maps found in Halo 2: Anniversary, the graphical remake of the game made for the original Xbox that will be included in Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Microsoft finally showed off gameplay from Quantum Break today, the time bending third person action game from developer Remedy, the team behind Max Payne and Alan Wake. The over eight minute clip showed the game's hero using his time powers to not only stop time around him but to stop time around just one enemy. There's still no release date for the game, however.
Microsoft showed off new gameplay footage during the press event of titles like Evolve (with an Xbox One beta to start in January), Fable Legends (with a multiplayer beta coming in October), Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive and many more. What do you think of today's announcements from Gamescom?
