    Many features common to the Halo series will not be making a return in Halo 5. After reporting that the new game will no longer support split-screen, the Studio Head at 343 Industries, Josh Holmes, also told a fan that there will be "no voting or veto, just straight rotation," while answering questions on Twitter.

    What does this mean for fans of the well-known Halo series? Simply put, this change will no longer allow players to fight on the same map(s) on a repetitive basis, taking away the feeling players may have had of somewhat controlling the outcome of how further matches were played. However, Josh did not mention whether this new rotation system will be randomized or set on the same group of maps like it is in Battlefield 4. This change in the map system could ultimately improve gameplay by offering more map variety, giving players the chance to experience all the landscapes available in Halo 5 instead of constantly playing on people's favorites.


    Halo 5: Guardians is set to launch on October 27th, exclusively to Xbox One. A limited edition console and controllers for the game are now available to preorder at the Microsoft Store.

    How do you feel about this change in the map system? Do you think it has the ability to change the overall gameplay of Halo? Share your thoughts below.

    Don't know why everyone is complaining and saying this is a complete **** game just because it doesn't have a veto system. Honestly, I like this because I won't be playing the exact same ****ing 3 maps that everyone always pick.

    So I will just have to exit the app or quit the lobby if I do not want to play the current map/mode, instead of the option to veto. In all honesty, it does not bother me too much. Hell Call of Duty does not have a veto system, so I'm used to it.

      Call of duty has had a map veto system for a long time and BO3 has one as well.

      Call of Duty has a voting system. Pick 1 of 2 maps, or pick a random map. In some Halo's, a map would be selected, and players could choose to vote against it in favor of a new map. It's not the same.

    Are people really getting pissed off about this? :rolleyes: Well I guess I can understand why because it's been one of the features in the game for a long time but...IMO...eh, I don't really care too much about it. I'm more frustrated about the no split-screen than voting for next f***ing map (lmao).

    I always found playing on the same 3 maps of any game rather tiresome. A lot of people complain when there aren't a lot of maps for a game even though everyone tries to play on the same few for each installment.
