10 Best Xbox One Multiplayer Games You Can Play Offline

10. Halo: The Master Chief Collection

One of the big disappointments of Halo 5: Guardians was its omission of a local split-screen mode. However, to soften the blow, 2014's Master Chief Collection - a glorious bundle featuring remastered versions of the first four Halo games - has full four-player split-screen support.

The campaign modes in each of the games support two-player split-screen, while all the competitive modes can be played with up to four people locally or online. This means you can relive all those legendary Halo experiences, be it a nostalgic Capture the Flag match in the original Halo's Blood Gulch, a close-quarters deathmatch in the brilliant Lockout arena, or a pop at the bizarre sports game Grifball - in which you try to plant a bomb-ball at the opponent's end of the pitch while evading the swings of the opposing team's Gravity Hammers.

The Master Chief Collection contains some of the best maps and modes in all split-screen shooter history, making it a must for the discerning multiplayer gamer.
