Halo 5: Guardians new local multiplayer server tools are nearly ready


Halo 5: Guardians already enjoys some of the best online networking available in multiplayer shooters, but if you want to get your latency even lower, Microsoft is working on a tool to allow users to create their own local-hosted servers on a Win 10 PC.

Buried in the Windows 10 Store is a new app dubbed “Halo 5: Guardians Local Server,” and it will allow Halo 5 players to connect their Xbox One consoles directly to a Windows 10 PC, which will act as a dedicated server over a local network.

Microsoft announced the tools a few weeks ago, but the app’s appearance in the Windows Store indicates that it should be ready for public consumption really soon.
