Halo 5: Guardians is a first-person shooter video game developed by 343 Industries and published by Microsoft Studios for the Xbox One. It is the tenth installment and the fifth main entry in the Halo series, and was released worldwide on October 27, 2015. The game's plot follows two fireteams of human super-soldiers: Blue Team, led by Master Chief and Fireteam Osiris, led by Spartan Locke. When the former goes absent without leave to track down the artificial intelligence construct Cortana, Master Chief's loyalty is called into question, and Fireteam Osiris is sent to retrieve him.


Regarding the gameplay the title brings with it several innovations, first of all the ability to control a team of soldiers and to give orders to the various members (such as collecting a weapon, getting on a vehicle or attacking a target). Also reappear the health bar under the shield indicator (already present in Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo: Reach) that differs from that present in the previous chapters by the fact that once at zero it will be possible to be revived by the companions of team, thus avoiding certain death. Another addition is the propulsion package present in the armor of the soldiers, which will allow greater mobility of the same.
