I think it’s gonna be really good. Still bummed they dropped the ball on co-op….
It's such a HUGE disappointment to me. To me a launch Halo game IS a Co-op game. It's the way I've experienced every Halo game, it's how I was introduced to the franchise and the Xbox as a whole and to not have one of the biggest features ready to go day 1 is absolutely disappointing. They should have just delayed it until the package was ready. Release the MP as they did and then the whole package for release. I mean, it's really like they are charging $60 for a single-played campaign, which while I think it will be an awesome campaign, seems to be a bit much for what's on offer. I'll be getting it on Gamepass so it's not like it's a huge loss, but I would have bought it straight up had the game launched like it should have.

I feel the exact same way. Me and my buddy always co-op these games because it’s how we love to play it, and now we can’t until some undetermined time next year. Sucks cause the game looks really fun.

You are only the 373736266373th person to complain about no co op at launch for 63652525633773th time.

Do you folks have to smear every infinite thread with this repeating crap.

Looks awesome to me. I love that they show a "battle scene" that looks fairly dynamic (your ship getting blown up, you then go on foot and kick ass).. I'm hoping they really focused on battle "Scenarios" in this Halo, it's what really was at the core of what made CE so awesome. Coming upon a battle already happening between the Flood and the whatever the other aliens are, 100 different ways to approach what you do in that battle.. you could wait it out and have less enemies to fight, you could go beast mode and take everyone on, do a bit of both, etc.

I'll probably wait for co-op; honestly my biggest issue with co-op being late, isn't that.. it's late.. it's that it hints to me they didn't put focus on co-op.. that's what partly made CE so great. The game was actually meant to be played with 2 people who might be on the clear other side of a huge battlefield from each other.

Halo CE's roots as an RTS really are what made it shine as an FPS, and I feel like they fairly quickly lost track of that in the series, but it was still always fun, just never "great" to me.

The great thing about the Dec 8th launch is that everyone wins. People who want to play it solo get to. The people who would prefer a delay so coop can be added can delay playing the game via personal choice.

It's like wishing Disney World didn't open until the Ratatouille ride was finished because you wanted it to be there for the grand opening. Plan your trip when you want to go.

I hate both bearded guy and new cortana, and the villain looks lame AF but i have nothing else to play in december so i'm pretty hyped anyway.

Hopefully the campaign is gonna be around 50 hours at least.

Calling an action game an "RTS" is the most heartening thing I've read on NeoGAF. Welcome to the club. Population, 2.

Well the game when it was in pre-production was envisioned as an RTS which Bungie had experience in creating Myth:


You probably knew that, but wasn't sure from your response <3

What lol. No, it's like wishing the park was complete so you can go on a single trip and appreciate the whole thing while you're their. What a false equivalency. They've delayed it this long, should have kept it done until it's complete as what we are getting is literally just a single-player campaign.

Awww...Did I hurt your feefees by giving my opinion? I'm literally like the 3rd person in this thread saying Hail to the King, but yes, I'm hear to smear.

We get it, some of you don't have friends and co-op isn't a big deal. Sorry for a mode that's been in every single release and not this one is harped on. Doesn't change the fact of the matter that a major component of the game is missing at launch. I can't wait to play it regardless, but I'm not happy that co-op is gone.

But you can go on a single trip; just wait for it to be complete lol

I'd rather have stuff sooner than later, but there's nothing stopping us co-op lovers to wait.

What you think this is, Assassins creed valhalla? 30 hours tops IF they have multiple biomes.

Hype for chief to say bad ass things again.

You're right, doesn't mean people shouldn't voice their concerns on the matter.
Yeah like I was saying earlier; I'm a patient person so waiting is fine for me... but I do worry that it'll be tacked on, and wasn't thought of in the level design. I think they may have even said it was less of a focus?

I don't think other than Halo 4/5 was Co-op implemented as a design choice in the development of the game. Certainly didn't feel that way with Halo 1/2/3. Co-op has always kinda been tacked on, it's that the single player expereince works super well with it being 'tacked' on.

No, its just beating a dead horse at this point.

I think that is the point. The new AI is naïve and inexperienced. Kinda like a rookie soldier.

In saying that, isn't that the point as I believe her sole purpose is to eventually kill/capture OG Cortana?

Halo CE definitely had co-op in mind.... like big time. The game was even balanced for it from an ammo/weapons/healthpack standpoint. Legendary is where co-op really shined.
