Halo 5 gets Aquarii




Quote: You've played the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta. Now it's time to uncover the mysteries behind the story.

We went to 343 Industries to get the first hands-on with Master Chief's campaign. As you can see from the cover imagery, the Chief is now accompanied by the legendary Blue Team in both single-player and four-player co-op. Linda, Fred, and Kelly were abducted when they were six years old alongside John to be turned into Spartan-II super soldiers. This tight-knit squad grew up together and battled through many adventures in the expanded fiction, but this will mark their first significant role in a core Halo game. With the loss of Cortana in Halo 4, Blue Team steps up to interact with Chief, appear in cutscenes, and accept commands from him in single-player. In co-op play, everyone takes on a specific member, each with a different loadout unique to their specialty.

We played an early mission set before Master Chief and Blue Team are declared AWOL by the very military that made them. The flipside of the campaign follows Spartan Jameson Locke, seen in the Halo: Nightfall TV series, as he tracks down Halo's signature hero to bring him in or take him down. Locke recruits a team of his own, Fireteam Osiris, to do the job. This mix of familiar and new faces rounds out the team of high-tech Spartan-IVs, who all come from elite military backgrounds. See if you can spot a returning fan favorite in our coverage trailer below.

Our lengthy hands-on sessions also included plenty of time in the revamped competitive Arena multiplayer. In the cover story, we break down specific changes to the Empire map from last winter's beta and we debut a never-before-seen map called Fathom. This undersea base looks gorgeous and is loaded with all kinds of hidden tricks for experienced players to dig in and discover. 343 also teases a new multiplayer mode never seen in a Halo game before. Read about all this and more in the latest issue of Game Informer.

Halo 5: Guardians is set to release on October 27 on Xbox One.

Yep. If you clearly read the text that says "click and drag to change screens" it is referring to the pictures in the article.

As far as I know, and please correct me if I'm wrong, there are 5 Spartan IIs still active. Four mentioned above and Naomi from the Kilo 5 series. I have doubts about Gray team too.

Screw the storm rifle, I honestly want the PR back more than anything. Otherwise everything looks pretty dang gorgeous (turquoise AR looks like grungy sci to concept art, I'm liking it a lot,) and the free DLC makes me so happy.

If SoF is ever found it should have like 3 more right?

That too. Plus I wish they shouldn't make this too dark and somewhat depressing. Yeah its a story about MC's issues and intergalactic dispute but, sometimes you know. Meh, I'm just talking about funny things you could do w/ the A.I. now that you can command them, your squad that is.

Well these pictures made my testicles ache. I am going to play halo 3 then continue on pumping out a hard project for ce3.

Nice job 343i btw. The graphics look more and more fake everyday.

Incineration Cannon no longer uses ammunition and uses a battery.
I don't know why in Halo 4 all the promethean weapons used ammo, it made no sense.

They still used ammo in the beta, at least the light rifle did.

Why come up with a unique third system when you can just smash the traits of the two existing systems (reloadable ballistics and battery-operated energy weapons) together?

Halo 5 will support the oculus rift, if you stream it from your xbox on windows 10... The only thing is it doesn't make the game virtual reality, it takes you to a 3d living room with a 2d plane playing the game, which is pretty meh. Personally I'm quite excited for the windows 10 streaming, as now I can stream MCC from my Xbox in play it in my own bedroom, it will be like playing H3 PC almost :c

Halo 4's shotgun was way too busy visually and had a nasty spotty metal texture added to it. The model is practically identical for Halo 5 but it has a new skin job, much like the AR.

The weapons should have a mini black hole siphoning mass from a neighboring star within a dyson-sphere containment field, and all this can be used to power the weapon.

Let's see who gets those two references :o

Hmmm I really wish they would change back to the H3 Shotty....the h4 one is just soooo...no!

I also see the carbine couldn't say no to TGI Frydays.

It was joke in reference to the h5's fuel rod model which looks so bloated and and out of character it might as well be a "supa phat" carbine.

I kinda dislike the design too, and I just hope whatever is on the back is not how it reloads. I'm guessing it might be a battery weapon again.

i hope it's battery, CE's FRG is still the best of the series IMO.
