I'm currently planning on buying an Xbox One, and playing Halo: Reach on it. I don't currently have an internet connection that is unlimited, so the Xbox One itself won't be connected. Is it still possible to play local multiplayer splitscreen without an internet connection?

    I've got Reach and an XB1, so I'll try it out. It's installing now, and I'm unfortunately going to be AFK for a while. If nobody's answered by the time I get back, I'll share the results :)

You can play splitscreen Halo: Reach on an Xbox One:

Splitscreen Reach on an XB1

I actually took it one step further and cast my XB1 to a Windows 10 laptop for this, although that's not a requirement.

One issue you may run into: apparently you have to download the game from Xbox Live, even if you have a disc:

If you have a disc version of the game, simply insert the disc into your Xbox One console, and the game will download from Xbox Live. You will need to keep the disc in the disc drive after the game is installed to play the game.
