Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta Will Feature Spectator Mode
Live-spectate players, rewind and fast forward matches in the upcoming beta.
As 2014 comes to a close, the last big release will be the multiplayer beta for Halo 5: Guardians. Along with giving fans a chance to check out the new gameplay, there will also be a spectator mode where players can watch matches live according to 343 Industries’ Josh Holmes with IGN.
“You can go in and live-spectate on any of your friends’ matches in the Beta, [and] you can flip between first person and third person. So if you want to cast, you can go do that in a Twitch stream.”
If you want to replay certain portions, rewind or fast forward, then you’ll be able to do that. “We’re looking at deepening those controls for launch, but we want to get that there for Beta so we can put it in the hands of players.”
Halo 5: Guardians is currently scheduled to release in 2015 for the Xbox One so stay tuned for more information.
