TIME FOR HALOFOLLOWER QUALITY THEORIES: Master Chief was on sanghelios, (the presumed location of H5) and somehow came across big bird from sesame seed street, bird big completely destroyed an area of sanghelios, and now, chief is being hunted by the covenant and Locke. Meanwhile a serious threat from the world of sesame street is planning on reviving the deceased elmo. Chief must now risk his life to save fat ass lazy humans again or die or something.

What I'm getting from this is that the construct is likely on Sanghelios, something is leaving the place in ruins, and there's classic banshees in this picture.

Yeah, I noticed the classic banshees as well. Do you think they'll be making a comeback?

Seeing as how the banshee in the Locke ad was the storm one, and arbiters covenant might be in the game, yes. Also in escalation there was a page with a Halo 2 banshee right by a reach one.

Why is everyone failing to mention that's Blue Team, the squad the Chief is the leader of?

Those are Spartan-IIs. If you've read the books, they basically destroy everything. This game just got a whole lot more interesting.

We should assume that although we see the classic banshee, it is far more likely we will have the newer design in Halo 5. Escalation has lots of questionable artwork, and was drawn. As is this. The Gamestop Locke trailer used the actual 3d geometry that we will likely see in the game. The classic banshee was in H1, H2, H3, and the new one has been Reach, CEA, H4, and H2A.

Anyone have any speculation as to why the construct might be on Sanghelios?

Looks like a big stone statue. Coupled with the dry, inhospitable-looking landscape, I think it's safe to assume that Sanghelios is involved.

No offense to the thread. But Halo 5 is now an official joke.

A black dude Vs. Master Chief?

There were so many other story lines they could have gone with......

Everyone has a right to their opinion. However, I think that this is a nice change of pace for the Halo saga. Having two human groups facing off against each other is a welcome shift from the ever present humanity-vs-aliens story they've had since 2001. I especially enjoy the fact that they are bringing the shiftiness and secrecy of ONI into the games. Especially in this day and age, when government invasion of privacy is a hot topic.

Yeah. A human vs human fight in Halo would really be something new to the series. And not too many Halos even have a main bad guy. Halo 1 had like no main bad guy. Halo 2 you could say Tartarus but meh. Halo 3 you could say Truth but also meh. He sits in a chair for 2 games. Halo 3 ODST was darkness. Halo Reach was the inability of Bungie to get you to connect to their bland characters before killing them. Halo 4 actually brought in a main bad guy and it's looking like Halo 5 is as well.

Right, that's what I meant. People seem to like the idea of a Halo game where humans are fighting humans, but the Insurrection remains almost untouched (to my disappointment), aside from serving as a tertiary faction in Halo Wars.

And the "official" canon takes yet another incredibly far-fetched lame turn.
Glad I didn't buy H4 (played it though @bro), and won't be buying this either.

Take that 343, that's 60 euros you WONT see! Haha!

Can't say I'll be buying this either. Not after the disappointment of both Halo 4 as a whole and the entire mess of the Master Chief Collection (which still barely works correctly afaik).

I really liked the standard Halo 1 - 3. I've said it multiple times but I really think that the entire Master Chief arc could have been finished there and he could have been left as a legend. There is so much more to explore and discover in the universe and it dosent need to include him.

I'm sure they're devastated.

I, however, love the current story arc of the series and look forward to where it is going. The Locke vs Chief is surely a subplot of the grander story in the game, since this is part of the reclaimer saga afterall. The master chief collection was a devastating blow to the series with the connection issues, however supposedly a different team is working on Halo 5's connectability. I had no issues with the beta, and I hope it continues that way. The beta was the most fun I had in multiplayer in a long time, and I look forward to playing it when it comes out.

Actually Halo 5 just got a whole lot more interesting. "That black dude" has been set up decently well and not only that but it's most likely that he has Buck (from ODST) on his team and maybe even Romeo as well. Then the female spartan is probably one of the characters in Nightfall who is pretty cool as well.

Still not convinced? Well, that team of Spartan IVs is searching for the Chief...WHO IS WITH BLUE TEAM. Do you know who Blue Team is? They're original Spartan IIs, they are as badass or even moreso than the Chief. You might think they could probably wipe the floor with Locke's team, but the only thing they actually have over Locke's team is the experience from years of conflict and operation. Spartan IV armor is actually really freakin' good and puts them on just about equal footing to augmented Spartan IIs.

So we have...
-Spartan IVs vs surviving Spartan IIs
-Chief searching for something along with Blue Team (Halsey? Cortana resurrection? Both?)
-Some giant forerunner guardian
-The Arbiter
-Probably the Sangheili world

Yeah, MCC is still slightly broken, but I'm still going to place confidence that 343i is finally doing something right and cool.

This is how the AAA industry works.
A company completely messes up a game, and the masses have a massive hissy fit.
Yet they'll just happily purchase the next game, as illustrated by the people in this thread.

WAIT is the group that is with the Chief confirmed to be Blue Team? (source pls?)
If that is the case I just got a whole lot more interested, and anyone else whose read the books probably will find this more interesting too.

One of the core reasons I liked H3:ODST so much was that it was a reflection of Blue team as vulnerable ODSTs. The Marksman, the Explosives specialist, the leader etc...

Very cool stuff.

I haven't seen an official source say so, but compare the armor to the two members of Blue Team in the last H2A terminal, and the team in Halo Escalation. It's also worth noting the colors of each member of the team's armor is represented in the animated poster, showing the spartan with optics as a gray and the other two as shades of blue, like in escalation and the terminal.

Impossible. Otherwise Locke would be dead in the first mission.

look, we've already been here before. we've already seen this trick in reach and it didn't work, and it wasn't just because the reach spartans had poor characterization.

the most overwhelmingly likely reality is that blue team is just going to be a new set of voices in your head who tell you to run around touching device_controls in the map, like every friendly story-relevant npc in every halo game ever. they will sometimes show up as invulnerable allies for short mission segments. maybe they will also be player models for co-op. halo's solo game isn't a tactical squad-based shooter and i sincerely doubt it's about to become one. the only reason blue team is here is because 343i realized that emphasizing Forthencho & Friends alienated a lot of the fans of the universe, and so they've added them as fanservice in an attempt to recapture that departing audience.

look at the historical effects of adding story-relevant npcs to the halo singleplayer experience:

in halo reach, the other spartans were invulnerable allies who occasionally showed up in missions, and otherwise were just voices in your head giving you new objectives.

in odst, the odsts besides the one you were currently playing as were invulnerable allies who occasionally showed up in missions, and otherwise were just voices in your head giving you new objectives. they were also used to give multiple 'perspectives', but we already have locke for that, and let's try not to think about a halo where you play as 8 different people. halo 4 barely had 8 missions.

in halo 3, the arbiter was an effectively invulnerable ally who occasionally showed up in missions, and otherwise was just one of the voices in your head giving you new objectives.

in halo 2, johnson and specops commander were invulnerable allies who occasionally showed up in missions, and otherwise were just voices in your head giving you new objectives.

or, okay, fine, halo isn't just about gameplay, it's also about story. let's look at it from the storytelling angle. we have a baseline of 8 spartans, plus probably the arbiter, and also presumably dr. halsey and some Infinity crew unless they plan to completely abandon everything from spartan ops, and then the bad-guy elite, and whoever is piloting the weird giant transformers bird in the background. do you really expect that a game with the length of the average halo game will be able to make effective, satisfying use of 12+ (?) recurring characters? halo 1 was the longest game of the series -- maybe outside of halo 2 -- and it barely uses 6 recurring characters, and only 2 of them are anything beyond bare-bones archetypes. (or, are we expecting another halo 2?)

and even if we ignore all that -- let's enter canon territory. the main conceit of halo 4's story was that the master cheif and cortana had a special relationship, and the character drama was driven by the prospect of them losing one another. this seemed weird to me from the start, because the master chief also had all of his spartan friends, who he had grown up with and fought with all his life. if he was the emotional type, he should have been depressed about so many of them dying on Reach, and not so much about a computer program that he's only known for like 3 months. but, since the other spartans had been kept out of the games, maybe you could ignore that backstory and just roll with it. but now the other spartan-iis are here, and all of a sudden the chief is going to look like a weirdo for pining over his computer girlfriend even though he also has to live with the guilt of sending most of his childhood friends to die. or, they have to downplay the relationship he has with his spartan friends. or, they have to backtrack everything with cortana in halo 4...!

Oh my, Halo 5 Master Chief suit, looks sick!

Well, 1 more week to get Uni work done (Throned Beast) then I think it's time to update this communities Master Chief models, tired of seeing the same old rips... I really want to make it from the ground up :)

Edit: Just noticed who posted about me, hello stranger, not seen you in a while (although I don't visit too often)

Fair points literally everywhere, but I always do like to have at least some bit of hope. Especially with this being on Xbox One now and 343i throwing millions of dollars of production value at the game. The gameplay will still probably be solid, maybe the characters are still just invulnerable but the cutscenes might still be mega-cool with Spartan fights. Or maybe that 4v4 fight does happen somewhere somehow. Dunno, I'll see when I play the game.
