This morning, the official GameStop YouTube channel uploaded a brand new promotional video for Halo 5: Guardians featuring Spartan Locke. While Halo fans know Locke’s ultimate objective is to reign in the rogue Master Chief after the events of Halo 4, this trailer features Locke giving a hefty beating to Covenant soldiers.
This advertisement may simply be pre-rendered CGI like last week’s Battlefront trailer, but seeing Locke performing Spartan abilities from last winter’s beta was still a thrill to watch. As a die-hard fan of the Chief, it feels a little tough to cheer for Locke, but only a fool would pretend that swift kick to the Banshee wasn’t a slick move.
As the trailer mentioned, pre-ordering Halo 5 at GameStop will grant you Spartan Locke’s armor for multiplayer, but after the less-than-stellar launch of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, gamers may feel a little less likely to shell out cash for a reserve copy. It’s worth noting that the Halo MCC pre-order content went free to all gamers shortly after launch, too.
Regardless of your choice to pre-order or not, Halo fans can dominate the battlefield for themselves when the game launches exclusively on Xbox One November 17th.Follow @bearclawgaming
