You've seen the first gameplay of the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta, and now you can see a whole match, premiered during the Halofest livestream,
This match was amazing, it gave me the nostalgia of halo 2 MP except brought it into the next gen. There were so many changes I expected a broken shamble of a game, but it was the exact opposite. All of the implementations of the changes were impeccable. completely skipped halo 4 because I was terribly unimpressed, but 343 definitely took the right route this time around. Cannot wait to see how much better it is after they take into consideration player feedback in the beta. Halo 5 is definitely on the top of my list now.
I have to say this looks really good. Fast paced Halo, count me in.
Yea, my expectations for halo games are really high, and this went above and beyond, for me at least. Soo happy it wasn't another halo 4 in term of MP. (Halo 4 campaign was pretty great though) @augmented I was going to make a thought out response, but realized it wasn't worth wasting my time as you are clearly just trying to troll other into a reaction.
Looks like a bland cartoon version of CODAW tbh.

What an awesome night, Halo5 Beta looked fantastic, the gameplay was fluid and that match was great with the best players going head to head. The Nightfall series was very interesting. Now my Halo MCC preorder is ready to play so see you guys later I'm about to dive into the original Halo campaign after many, many years all over again. Dammm, X1 is on a huge roll! New Halo Achievements and background incoming :)
the 60 frames per second sure makes a difference.
Honestly looking at it as it's own independent game, it looks like fun but lets not get carried away, it looked absolutely nothing like halo 2
Reminds me a lot of halo 2 personally, and as someone who played hundreds of hours of halo 2 MP I think I have the right to an opinion on the matter. Didn't say you have to agree. Obviously they are different games, but I can clearly see the life force of halo 2 MP shine through, and that is VERY important for me.
Well they've remade halo 2 just now. They can't be remaking halo 2 again next year. Halo 2 is amazing but it's a 10 year old game. We love saying oh make it like halo 2, but most of us don't know how the market works. If they keep it the same the franchise isn't gonna go anywhere. They added dual wielding in halo 2 after halo 1 right? If they kept it the same the franchise would not have sustained itself for so long. As long as there's balance this is perfectly fine to me. The problem with halo 4 wasn't the features they added, it was the load-outs and unlocks that took us away from the "even start" philosophy halo has had. And it looks like they've fixed that. Instead of seeing the fun in playing, the first thing we do is try to look for similarities to Cod and immediately crucify the game. If I was a developer and I had to constantly worry about something I added looking like Cod or another game, I would be frustrated out of my mind.
cant wait till iget my x1 4 this
Stop talking! Take my damn money!
Woohoo glad I picked up my Xbox One last weekend, impeccable timing for this. My Xbox One's only for exclusives but this and the other great exclusives like Sunset Overdrive and Forza Horizon 2 will easily make my investment worthwhile!
Looks so good, holy cow.
Looks pretty darn good. You cant regain shields while sprinting so that adds a good balance, people cant just run away and get their health back. Also movement without sprinting is still fast so its not like its all that necessary. Safe to say many of us jumped the gun on judging the MP. This is Halo through and through. Just hope i can play some of the beta at one of my friend's houses... still gotta hop on that xbox one. I can sleep well tonight knowing 343 didn't screw it up like i was afraid they would. Good job 343.
How can you or anyone else say they haven't screwed up when we were all hyped for Halo 4s multiplayer Look what happened I mean people will disagree away here and think I'm "hating" as always but as a massive Halo 2 MP fan that didn't look old school to me, something which made people leave Halo 4 MP after a while. Look at the majority of comments here, it's the same talk before Halo 4 came out, they try to make the new changes look like they are for the better but the same changes end up putting people off. If they take out the thrusters, air ground attacks, sprint I'd be fine. They are basically get out of jail cards. It doesn't look as bad as I thought, but in no way does it look like classic Halo. I'll play it before I further judge but as I've said people hyped themselves up for Halo 4 and look what happened.
you're such a half empty glass type of person aren't you? what payoff do you have by going into basically every article, whether it be about games or movies (because you do the same thing on the movie site too), to be such a pessimist? http://n4g.com/news/1618009... prime example. somebody mentions halo mc collection as the game that is defining to THEM (meaning their opinion) and you quickly come in to question it. every article, every review has been praising this boxed collection yet once again you come across as being a downer, wanting to show your pessimism time and time again. you talk about how great the old games were and now that they made them better where is your excitement? nowhere to be found. meaning you enjoy being negative. this is the character you want to portray, whether it be for attention or because you're simply not a positive person to begin with. stop for a moment and see yourself from other peoples point of view. only then will you realize why people talk about the way you conduct yourself but i have a feeling you simply dont care what others think and its a sure sign of someone who is very narcissistic.
Oh look a reply talking about me the user instead of countering what I wrote or actually speaking about the article. Mate you've joined seven days ago and the only things you've done in those seven days is target Sony articles and be negative in them....something your trying to call me for. If I wasn't a Halo fan and just a "hater" then I wouldn't of bought the limited edition Maser Chief collection despite not having an Xbox One yet would I. http://oi61.tinypic.com/de8... Oh and don't do the every article speech, it's so old and so obvious. You talk about commenting on someone and questioning them...you did exactly the same http://n4g.com/news/1615705... Trying to start shit by calling a user, who's not even there, to make yourself look good. How....brave.
Those leaked 7 secs scared me a bit but this gameplay has renewed my interest. I still need to play the beta before i have a real opinion. If you're a purist that's your problem. Most people have moved on from Halo 2, and games have certainly moved on. "I'll play it before I further judge" Awesome. You do that. That's what i've been saying everyone should do. If this game comes out mediocre, you can tell us all "i told you so". Until then, no sense in judging before you play.
first off your the one who brought up hating and i clearly showed why they bring it up. im not labelling you as a fanboy, only that you are very negative. which everyone can see except you it seems. then you talked about how this still doesn't look like classic halo implying those are the pinnacle games. which is why i brought up the mc collection only to my amazement you still don't seem very positive about that either. you enjoy being negative, we can all agree on that. you wrote, "Mate you've joined seven days ago and the only things you've done in those seven days is target Sony articles and be negative in them" http://n4g.com/news/1619158... i praised the ps4 for being better than the ps3. http://n4g.com/news/1618283... i chose the ps3 and ps4 above the xbox 360 and xbox one and wii u. http://n4g.com/news/1618071... i love this game and own it, it was a ps3 exclusive. http://n4g.com/user/blogpos... i mention many playstation exclusives. http://n4g.com/news/1614910... i talk about how much better the dualshock 4 is compared to the ds3. http://n4g.com/news/1614724... i said the next gran turismo will sell at least 10 million. amazing, i think i've probably said more positive things about sony than you have about microsoft in the past 7 days than you have in the 451 days since you joined. anything else you want to desperately try and spin? edited to update last comment, "Awesome. You do that. That's what i've been saying everyone should do. If this game comes out mediocre, you can tell us all "i told you so". Until then, no sense in judging before you play." but that isn't his schtick. his schtick is to be a debbie downer first then wait for people to respond only to question everyone why they view him as overly negative. i will post this once again since it seemed to have gone ignored like i said it would, stop for a moment and see yourself from other peoples point of view. only then will you realize why people talk about the way you conduct yourself but i have a feeling you simply dont care what others think and its a sure sign of someone who is very narcissistic.
Hey you need a xb1 to play it. I have a extra xb1 if you want to buy it. It has no cords I'll sell you the box for 150 without cords. I'm being serious
They've given us the halo collection for all the old school we can handle. Honestly if they made halo 5 old school, it would be basically halo 2 with better graphics. They can't keep doing that forever. Halo 4's problem was load-outs, unlocks and uneven starts, which people didn't expect. Sure Halo 5 could screw up too, but it sure looks like they've fixed a lot of things. The early beta says a lot about how serious they are.
holy crap and this is an early beta
Is this joker coming out on pc?
I don't think so. Buy an XB1
Day1 ed. Midnight release, cmon...
This looks fantastic, although I have no past experience with Halo multiplayer. The lighting is beautiful.
sorry but i thought this looked terrible, looks like the same sandbox as halo 4. its sad to see the franchise go downhill like this. i can just tell from watching it. they taken everything that made halo great and and completely changing it, it doesnt make any sense, why change the core mechanics of a game? its not even halo anymore, 343 might as well just be developing another cod game.
looks like the same sandbox as halo 4 In a remake of a halo 2 map, you say it's like halo 4... I can't even... Just go. Go now.
While I agree that the sandbox looks nothing like Halo 4, that map isn't midship, it's bigship.
You don't even know what Halo is do you? Balanced sprint... (Shield doesn't recharge while sprinting) All Spartan Abilities... No Armor Abilities Battle Rifle and DMR have been separated Air Stomp...................... Why change the core mechanics? BECAUSE YOU CAN'T REPOST THE SAME GAME MECHANICS FOR 20 YEARS AND THINK NO ONE WILL NOTICE! They have to revolutionize the game... And we've all seen your posts Quicktim... You were never buying it in the first place.
One word: Mario
Meh. I wasn't a fan of this game when it was called Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and I'm not a fan of it now. RIP Halo. 343 decided to just make CoD clones.
The cross-hair is in the middle of the screen. Can they do that? I don't think they can do that.
Well the managed to add ADS, sprint (even if better balanced) as well as jetpacks and parkour. Hey, why shouldn't they put the game even further away from original halo titles?
This is almost CGI.My God What the hell did you do 343i?
Please give me what you smoking or at least take out the fanboy goggles. Looks no where near cgi hahaha..
That game literaly looking like nothing looked before and not even somoking cigarettes:)
Then you haven't played much games then.
You can try and hate with your fan boy goggles all you want, but this game does literally looks cg at certain times, and its a year a way. To top it all off it is the multiplayer part of the game. I'm scared to see how good the campaign will look.
Can't wait. Xbox it's where the best games are.
Oh god. Please, just no.
hip firing.....smh i hate it...
I love it. Halo, Quake 3, Unreal Tourney... all my favourite competitive games are fast, have highly visibible opponents, and hip fire. Each to his own though.
Visibible :| What an idiot that guy is.
Why are you telling us this..smh
Oh sweet damn that was amazing, I see bungie can that garbage destiny, activision an ea better grab their little developrs and study this real hard. This might just be the new halo 2. im hoping they include like 3 classic halo maps, I would love to see sidewinder, derelict and damnation come back. Good to see microsoft keeping these 343 boys in check and not letting them get lazy like every other fps developer out there. Has killzone polished graphics with halo 2 style fast paced multiplayer, looks damn near perfect.
Was not expecting this at all. Hype is through the freakin roof!
The speed and the pace...the movement. Spartans are moving like spartans now! Cant wait to play this!
Sorry, not impressed. Halo mcc will be much better than this.
I am excited for it. Honestly I saw it and really thought of COD AW simply cause of the new abilities. Which isn't a bad thing :D
Game looks great, but the players dont look like Pro Halo Players at all. Or not what I think they are suppost to look like. My MMR for Halo 3 seemed more skillful than this IMO, but I guess since its a new Halo, they just havent gotten use to the mechanics?
It was the first time they played the game, like any other game it has a learning curve.
like they said at the end, they just started playing it and getting used to and when the play the beta they will get the hand of it a long as everyone else.
k thanks, i didnt know, bcuz some ppl at my school call Optic the best gamers and watching this, i thought they were average so i didnt know it was just learning curve
It's a refined Halo 4 and I think that is a great thing. They struck balance everywhere. Those graphics and that framerate......... DEAR GOD!!! That disagree....such a hater.
well said and bubble up my friend :)
Oh boy...we got the awesomeness of MCC AND this? I swear, I love this console!
Game looks incredible! And it brought positive change instead of negative. Well done 343 you guys are awesome!
Meh im done with halo. Maybe I will go back to reach.
thanks for letting us know
They should just make halo 2 and not change anything every year right? no changed allowed.
These people you can't win with. They are same people asking for change in cod, saying games need change then go around say they want the same game just like halo 2, games need to evolve One reason halo will never be like cod is the shields that little thing changes the game play
You are done with Halo so you will go back to "Halo" Reach. Alrighty then...
Halo reach has more randomness than halo 5 since all Spartans begin with equal starts in halo 5.
