‘Halo 5’ Trailer Teases Return of Popular Cooperative Mode (Video)

The multiplayer mode was absent from “Halo 4,” but finally makes its return as downloadable content

The new “Halo 5” trailer touts “an all-new multiplayer experience,” but fans of the franchise should recognize it fromĀ “Halo 3: ODST” and “Halo: Reach.”

That doesn’t mean its return in “Halo 5: Guardians” isn’t a big deal, of course.

Firefight mode pits a team of players (up to eight, this time) against waves of enemies while trying to complete “increasingly difficult, dynamic objectives set against a timer.”

343 Industries promises that the “Halo 5” version of Firefight will provide the most on-screen enemies the series has thus far seen, which is not a surprise given that “Halo 5” is the first of the series released on the new-generation Xbox One console.

Gamers will get to experience Warzone Firefight this summer when “Halo 5” goes on sale.
