Microsoft is preparing for its Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer closed beta test for the Xbox One, and starting tonight it will let folks go behind-the-scenes of the making of the beta in a six-part documentary video series, called The Sprint.
The series will be shown exclusively on the Halo Channel app. Here's a look at the schedule for the documentary:
- Episode 1: Balance - Premiering Thursday, December 18 @ 7:00 p.m. Eastern time, 4:00 p.m. Pacific time: The 343 Industries pro team gives their final feedback on "Truth," an homage to the Halo 2 map "Midship," which will be included in the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta.
- Episode 2: Give & Take - Premiering Friday, December 19 @ 7:00 p.m. Eastern time, 4:00 p.m. Pacific time: The art team discovers that some of the ideas they have don't quite meld with the layout set forth by the level designers. With time running out, what compromises must be made?
- Episode 3: Prophets - Premiering Saturday, December 20 @ 7:00 p.m. Eastern time, 4:00 p.m. Pacific time: With the map "Truth" well on its way to completion, the art team must shift their focus to the remix map "Regret," which presents a massive undertaking in and of itself. Will there be enough time to finish it before the deadline?
- Episode 4: Breakout - Premiering Sunday, December 21 @ 7:00 p.m. Eastern time, 4:00 p.m. Pacific time: The Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer design team invites Halo pros to the studio to offer feedback that could shape the future of the competitive experience.
