Xbox and 343 Industries have released a brand new cinematic for Halo 5: Guardians. While the last cinematic featured Jameson Locke, this new video delves deeper into the story of Master Chief and the Blue Team. You can check out the opening cinematic for Halo 5: Guardians’ second mission, “Blue Team,” in the player below.
In the new video, Master Chief leads Blue Team aboard a derelict Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) research facility in order to ensure its contents don’t fall into the hands of a renegade faction of Covenant zealots. One of his team members suspects if Chief is pushing himself too hard and is going on too many missions. Chief reaches the facility, and the team makes a daring jump through space to the facility to attack the Covenant renegades. They blast through the airlock, and the Covenant are sucked out into the vacuum of space. The team has landed successfully so far. It will be interesting to see what exactly triggers the journey into Chief becoming a fugitive from justice and a traitor to the USNC, who is later hunted by Locke.
The await of the highly anticipated Halo 5: Guardians is almost over. Halo 5: Guardians arrives on October 27. The game will be available exclusively on Xbox One.
