Soon Halo fans and event organisers will be able to create their very own local servers and host Halo 5: Guardians games thanks to the imminent release of a new application announced by Microsoft this week in the form of a Windows UWP app aptly named Halo 5: Guardians Local Server. The new application will be available to create Halo 5: Guardians local LAN parties. The application is expected to be made available around November 2nd when a new update is released called “Overtime” which brings with it a wealth of new fixes and updates ready for the launch of the Xbox One X console.
The Halo 5: Guardians Local Server application will be available to download via the Windows Store transforming your PC into a local server enabling Xbox One consoles on the same network to experience super fast gameplay and low-latency Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer matches.
All Halo 5 players can use the Local Server app to create their own custom games, including custom game types and community maps created using Forge mode – and all you need is an Xbox Live Silver account. An internet connection for host PC and consoles is required for Xbox Live sign-in and Post-Game Carnage Reports but all gameplay traffic is transmitted over the local network, significantly reducing internet bandwidth requirements, and letting you concentrate on the action.
The app provides a method for tournament organizers to set up their own events in a scenario that mirrors the environment used for professional matches. With these new options, you can create a local server similar to those used for the Halo Championship Series events, providing an ideal proving ground for everything from professional and amateur competitive teams to friendly tournaments
