Halo 5: Guardians is one of the year's biggest games, and the Xbox One's biggest exclusive in 2015. 343 Industries studio head Bonnie Ross, has released a statement revealing some more details on the hugely anticipated title.
Ross explains that they wanted Halo 5 to deliver on the promise of the Halo universe, while creating a sense of amazement by the size of the worlds and battles, as well as reevaluate the whole lore of the franchise.
“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,"
“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."
As Bonnie Ross mentioned, this is only the beginning of the marketing campaign for Halo 5: Guardians, and more will be revealed, leading up to E3 in June where 343 Industries and Microsoft will demonstrate the game with most likely a gameplay trailer. As has been already mentioned, Halo 5 will be a "hugely innovative title", and judging from the live action trailers, this might actually be true. It could feature an extremely powerful relationship between Master Chief and Spartan Locke, with a great focus on the different shades of perception governing the two protagonists.
Halo 5: Guardians is being released on October 27 2015 for the Xbox One. We will bring you any new information as soon as it becomes available. Be sure to check our previous coverage for more information here and here.
