Microsoft and 343 Industries has confirmed that Halo 5: Guardians will be released on October 27. A couple of trailers were released to announce the news.
The first spot, titled “All Hail,” highlights Spartan Locke drawing down on the compromised Master Chief, questioning his legacy and motives. The second, “The Cost,” shows the Master Chief with the upper hand over an injured Spartan Locke, delivering a powerful manifesto about the true price of being a hero.
Which version is true? Who is the hunter and who is the hunted?
“We wanted Halo 5: Guardians to be the game that pays off the epic promise of the Halo universe in scope and scale and drama,” said Bonnie Ross, Head of 343 Industries. “We want to amaze players with the sheer size of the worlds and battles they’ll experience, even as they question everything they thought they knew about its heroes, marvels and mysteries. #HunttheTruth is only the beginning and we can’t wait to debut the game to Xbox fans around the world at E3 this June.”
