Halo 5: Guardians is right around the corner, and Microsoft just released two new videos to help tide us over.
Halo 5: Guardians follows the exploits of John Locke and Master Chief as they try to rescue humanity from a galactic threat.
The first gives us a look at Halo 5's cinematic treatment while the gameplay trailer follows Spartan Locke on a mission named "Swords of Sanghelios".
Halo 5: Guardians – Cinema First Look
Halo 5: Guardians – Swords of Sanghelios Gameplay Capture
In the first video, franchise director Frank O' Connor remarks that Halo 5 will feature a subversive plot. We know from Microsoft's #HUNTtheTRUTH campaign that in Halo 5, not everything will be as it seems.
..."We have deliberately put ourselves in a world that isn't black and white. It's not fully understood that there's simple good guys and simple bad guys."...
Both videos showcase the fact you can issue squad commands to your team if you opt to play with A.I. instead of use the game's four-player campaign co-op. The gameplay footage looks utterly stunning in HD at 60 frames per second. The mission takes place on Sanghelios, the home-world of the Sangheili, perhaps better known as the "Elite" enemies from previous Halo titles. The vid showcases how vast and open-ended the game's combat spaces are, as well as their verticality. Halo 5 certainly appears to be a step up in every sense for the Xbox One's flagship franchise.
Halo 5 Guardians faces off against intense competition from the likes of Fallout 4 and Star Wars Battlefront when it ships on October 27th, 2015.
Is Halo 5 on your list? 2015 has certainly been harsh on the wallets.
