Anyone that has pre-ordered Halo 5: Guardians knows that the wait for launch day has literally turned into a day by day vigil beside the Xbox Marketplace.
To ease that pain of the inevitable wait, Halo 5: Guardians is available now to pre-installfor those who pre-ordered digitally, so when launch day hits you can simply turn on and ‘Hunt the Truth’.
“A mysterious and unstoppable force threatens the galaxy, the Master Chief is missing and his loyalty questioned. Experience the most dramatic Halo story to date in a 4-player cooperative epic that spans three worlds. Challenge friends and rivals in new multiplayer modes: Warzone, massive 24-player battles, and Arena, pure 4-vs-4 competitive combat. Online multiplayer features require Xbox Live Gold membership (sold separately).”
Reminder that there will be an update, prior to launch, that will supplement online multiplayer with map content for Arena Multiplayer and Warzone Multiplayer. Make sure you have the Power Setting for your Xbox One set to “Instant On” so that you’ll automatically download the online multiplayer update prior to October 27th and be ready on launch day.
