Spartans are looking more powerful and stylish than ever in the new cinematic for Halo 5.
With just under two months until release, anticipation for Halo 5: Guardians is at an all-time high. Just this week, Gamestop revealed that the most anticipated title from August 1st to October 31st is Guardians beating out other high profile games like Metal Gear Solid V and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. Taking full advantage of fans’ hype before release, developer 343 Industries has released the intro cinematic for Halo 5. I dare say, it might just be better than the still-chilling Halo 3: ODST trailer. Watch and decide for yourself!
Personally, Halo 2 was the strongest campaign in series history, so I’m thrilled to see 343i bringing that story dynamic back for Halo 5 by swapping between Master Chief and Spartan Locke between missions. After the folly that was the launch of the Master Chief Collection, many are skeptical of 343i’s capabilities to deliver a strong Halo installment. Perhaps Guardians is finally where they’ll shut down any doubts.
Halo 5: Guardians launches exclusively on Xbox One October 27th, 2015.
