Josh Holmes corrects earlier statement that said Xbox Live Silver would be enough.
343 Industries’ Halo 5: Guardians has received a lot of new information in the past few weeks but one point required correction. Executive producer Josh Holmes took to Halo Waypoint to reveal that he “misspoke when stating that online co-op campaign would be supported with an Xbox Live Silver account”.
As Holmes states, “Co-op campaign will require Xbox Live Gold to play.” On the bright side though, “It is important to us that fans have the opportunity to play the full co-op campaign experience and we are doing this by providing a 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial with Halo 5: Guardians.”
But if you want to keep playing? Then you’ll have to cough up the money for Gold. It’s not the biggest crime in the world – after all, pretty much every multiplayer title requires Xbox Live Gold at this point.
Halo 5: Guardians releases in November for Xbox One. Stay tuned for more information on the game at Microsoft’s E3 press event on June 15th, 9.30 AM PST.
