REQUIRES HALO 5: GUARDIANS ON XBOX ONE. THIS IS A TOOL FOR HOSTING LOCAL MULTIPLAYER MATCHES AND DOES NOT CONTAIN ACTUAL GAME CONTENT Halo 5: Guardians Local Server provides a new way to create, host and play custom multiplayer games in Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One on a local network. Using this simple application, players can host a local server on a Windows 10 PC connected to the same network as Xbox One consoles for low-latency Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer matches. This app provides a method for local tournament organizers to set up their own events in a scenario that closely mirrors professional matches. Using this tool, you can create a local server similar to those used for the Halo Championship Series and Halo World Championship esports events, providing an ideal proving ground for everything from professional and amateur competitive teams to friendly tournaments. Additionally, all players can use this app to create their own custom games, including custom game types and community maps created using the in-game Forge mode. Internet connectivity for host PC and consoles is required for Xbox Live sign-in and Post-Game Carnage Reports but all core gameplay traffic is transmitted over the local network, significantly reducing internet bandwidth requirements. This tool is designed specifically for console users, and does not work with Halo 5: Forge on Windows PC. Benefits of this app include: -Faster connectivity for low-latency multiplayer matches in Halo 5: Guardians for Xbox One -Easy setup - simply launch the app, join the custom server in the game, and play! -Significantly reduces internet bandwidth requirements -Closely replicates tournament setups used for esports events like Halo Championship Series and Halo World Championships Requirements: -Windows 10 PC that meets or exceeds system requirements listed below -Local network connection for host PC and Xbox One consoles with Internet connectivity -Xbox Live membership for each Xbox One console Note: This tool is designed specifically for console users, and does not work with Halo 5: Forge on Windows PC.
