The Xbox One exclusive Halo 5: Guardians will release worldwide on the 27th of October, Microsoft has announced. Two live action trailers focusing on Master Chief and Spartan Locke have also been released.
Both trailers are very similar, with the only difference being that while in one trailer we get a glimpse at Master Chief's perspective, the other highlights Spartan Locke's perspective. "The Master Chief. Spartan Locke. Who is the hunter and who is the hunted?" said Microsoft.
"The first spot, titled All Hail, highlights Spartan Locke drawing down on the compromised Master Chief, questioning his legacy and motives. The second, The Cost, shows the Master Chief with the upper hand over an injured Spartan Locke, delivering a powerful manifesto about the true price of being a hero. Which version is true? Who is the hunter and who is the hunted?"
343 Industries's Bonnie Ross states that the team is working hard to deliver an experience that will amaze players and bring out the best of the Halo franchise, and that we can expect more details at this year's E3. "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," said Ross.
"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. HunttheTruth is only the beginning and we can"t wait to debut the game to Xbox fans around the world at E3 this June."
