Halo 5 Campaign To Be Twice As Big

One common complaint levelled at military shooter games with a heavy multiplayer focus is that the single player campaign mode is being treated more and more like an afterthought.

From “Call of Duty” to “Battlefield,” some of these games have seen their campaign modes drop to as little as 4-7 hours. The “Halo” franchise has also come under criticism for that – with the first game’s 11 hour average play through time dropping to around 8 hours for the fourth entry.

Microsoft and 343 Industries are planning to change that perception with the upcoming “Halo 5: Guardians” with GamesRadar reporting that “Halo 5” will have a campaign mode that’s twice as long as the one from “Halo 4”.

In fact, 343 Industries revealed they were planning on making the campaign mode even longer but decided to scale it back to fit within a reasonable amount of length for players. The campaign mode will include Covenant, Forerunners and human locations, but there isn’t any specifics on how many hours we’re talking to complete the game.

“Halo 5: Guardians” to hit stores on October 27th.
