343 Industries had something of a difficult task in redeeming their reputation and persuading millions of players that they were up to the task of taking over the Halo franchise. When the original creators, Bungie, left to go and create their very own shooter in the form of Destiny, the studio was put together by Microsoft specifically to carry on developing future games in the series. While they certainly didn’t cause too much harm with the release of Halo 4, their first attempt didn’t exactly set the world on fire either. Meanwhile a disastrous launch of Halo: The Master Chief Collection raised many questions about whether the developer was capable of handling such responsibility.
Halo 5: Guardians won’t be receiving any sort of campaign downloadable content, as developer 343 Industries wants to focus on other aspects of the game for expansions. Studio head Josh Holmes has explained in an interview with Red Bull that although the team is interested in finding new ways to get players involved in the world of Halo, they don’t have any plans to do that with further story content for the newly released shooter.
While it’s not uncommon for games to take up huge amounts of storage pace when they are installed on next generation consoles, they usually don’t come anywhere near the size that Halo 5: Guardians will reportedly be. According to images found off the official box art by NeoGAF users the title will require 60 GB of hard drive space to be installed, meaning you may have to delete some content from your Xbox One hard drive if you want to play the highly anticipated game.
October not only sees the long-awaited release of Halo 5: Guardians, but also a new CG animated Halo movie. This one is particular is an animated adaptation of Eric Nylund’s Halo: The Fall of Reach novel. You can check out the new launch trailer for the film that was recently released by Microsoft and 343 Industries below.
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.
Later this year, Microsoft and 343 Industries will release the next main game in the Halo franchise with Halo 5: Guardians. Shortly after E3, 343 Industries released a series of behind-the-scenes video featurettes for the game showing the Road to E3. The new videos are available in the player below.
Microtransactions are common amongst free-to-play games as a way for developers to earn money from a product that doesn’t have an initial fee. However, in recent times they have started to become more and more prevalent in fully-fledged titles that are available at retail. So not only are some developers asking you to pay around $60 to play their game but they also want to encourage you to part with more money for bonuses. While the practice is still relatively rare it is becoming more frequent and 343 Industries is the latest studio to jump on the bandwagon with Halo 5: Guardians.
Halo is arguably Microsoft’s biggest showpiece in terms of gaming. It effectively launched the original Xbox console back in 2001 and became one of the major gaming franchises with the release of Halo 2 in 2004. So when Microsoft and Halo developer 343 Industries announced that they were set to release a remastered compilation of all of Master Chief’s adventures for the Xbox One, fans were naturally delighted that they would get to play some of their favorite games on the console with upgraded graphics and audio.
Halo 5 Guardians is shaping up to be one of the more interesting games in the Halo lineup. A teaser stated that Agent Locke may view Master Chief as a traitor, and his mission might be to kill him During the Walking Dead season finale tonight, that seemed to be confirmed. As we got to see this live-action trailer…
Over the past couple of weeks, players who bought Halo: The Master Chief Collection have been able to try out some of the multiplayer offerings from the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians. The game will be the second Halo sequel developed by 343 Studios following the split of Bungie from Microsoft. They were last responsible for Halo 4, a game that divided fans somewhat for the dramatic departure from some of the traditional gameplay mechanics of the series. That didn’t stop it from receiving a strong positive reception and break sales records for the franchise though.
An interview posted in X-One magazine with actor Mike Colter reveals that, which has since been posted online through Reddit, reveals that Master Chief is not the main protagonist in the upcoming first-person shooter Halo 5: Guardians. Colter plays Agent Locke in the live-action series Halo: Nightfall that connects the story between Halo 4 and Halo 5.
