Halo 5: Guardians launches in a month, and fans can’t wait to don their Spartan armor once more and jump into battle. With stunning graphics, strong characters and advanced multiplayer, Halo 5 tells the story of Blue Team and Master Chief, whose different paths (and recognition) throw them together for an adventure of a lifetime. Playing as Spartan Locke, you must lead your team into the heart of Covenant and Forerunner danger, at whatever cost.
In case you missed it, here’s the opening cinematic for Halo 5: Guardians, newly unveiled by XBox:
That’s right – Nathan Fillion returns as Edward Buck, reprising his role from Halo 3: ODST. It’s clear that there exists a strong bond between Buck and his Fire Team Osiris, as evident in the opening cinematic. But who is this story about, anyway? Buck? Spartan Locke? Where does Master Chief come in to play? If you remember, the #HuntTheTruth ad campaign calls to question what we all know about Spartan 117. What will players uncover?
Building the anticipation, the team at 343 Industries gives us an inside look at what Halo 5 is all about. “It is about wonder,” explains Bonnie Ross, Corporate Vice President for Halo. “It is about epic worlds. It is about heroism.”
