XBA plays the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta, breaking down every ability and map.
Here's to hoping they change the sniper's look. It's the same design from Halo 4 and I really do not dig it. Why not just start from the Halo 3 sniper and improve on that? Imo, that's the best Halo sniper, functionality wise and design wise. Well, it's tied with the Reach one anyways.
Nah I like it and so far I'm impressed at what 343 have done with Halo5. It's already a great looking game in beta form, plus it's so fluid, it really looks like the game has a different feel to it while also maintaining that core Halo-esque gameplay. Congrats to those guys, seriously with so much Halo goodness I'm a very happy gamer today.
this game will rock the world
It has certainly rocked my world just from the previews!!! My copy of MCC hasn't arrived yet :( Delay with shipping, I've been told to expect it by Friday... I'm sad.
it looks really pretty
Jet packs how surprising 343 taking ideas from Call of Duty once again. The only thing i dont like it is that you cant recover armor while sprinting and most player stayed in the same place for the health to regenerate during the stream. So now theres a feature to make the game more fast paced and another to slow it down?! @ RSR its different you couldnt double jump, dash etc those features were added from Titanfall or COD. Watch the Halo Fest video
Halo Reach had jetpacks, Halo 4 had jetpacks. How about Call of Duty stole from them. Thank you for your incredibly wise insight though.
See, this is why people should check their hate before commenting. On anything.
Jet packs existed way before call of duty.
Don't forget: Halo, even the original, took a lot of inspiration from Tribes. So, it only makes sense that we'd see the jet pack implemented at some point.
I've got to agree, Tribes and the whole Starsiege universe as a whole really did kinda' inspire the first looks of Halo, but then again they did change it a lot from that first demo we got to see.
I don't think people understand. Tribes was legitimately a large influence on Halo. Bungie absolutely loved the Tribes franchise.
Dashing was an armor ability that originally started as being in first person in Halo 4 and evade was also in Halo Reach which is pretty much the same thing.
LOLL jet packs are from Call of duty? Are you right in the head? They were introduced to halo in 2010 when Reach came out, and Cod just got them now.................at least don't make yourself look like a total idiot. So you want them to keep it exactly the same then just because other games have similar features? The game is not gonna go anywhere then, why would they even bother making it. But on topic, I'd really like to see some big team battle innovations. They shown us the micro-side, now they need to do something epic with the macro. I wanna be able to fight with a scarab in multiplayer!
Ah this is such a relief. It looks like it plays like halo but a fresh air of it! Love it
I LOVE EVERYTHING! THIS IS THE EVOLUTION OF HALO! I was hesitant at first with the Spartan abilities but the fact everyone has these abilities and no loadouts really returns halo to its competitive glory. The graphics look so amazing with a real balance of halo's signature sci fi look and realism. And the fact that its guaranteed to look even better with higher resolution and probably a few touch ups on textures! AND WE HAVENT EVEN SEEN CAMPAIGN FOOTAGE YET! The only thing I am let down by is that the beta wont include any vehicle maps. I really hope medium to large vehicle maps don't get overlooked in this game. I believe they are just as important to halo as the arena maps.
Well its Titanfall and Halo for me...bye bye COD..
There were shooters before COD. Unreal Quake Tribes Geesh FPS didn't start with COD. On Topic: Halo 5 Beta looks amazing.
Looks really good. I don't mind the aim sight. Can't wait to play the beta.
run and kill, run and kill, run and kill,run and kill,run and kill,run and kill,run and kill,run and kill,run and kill,run and kill,run and kill,run and kill, sheeessss can't someone create an innovating FPS MP? I miss Killzone 2 MP :/
Wait...so you try to label halo as just "run and kill", dismissing the fact that it has more game modes than your beloved KZ2...which isnt a patch on ANY halo btw... Nice try, troll.
Killzone is the "halo killer" flop and it always will be... nice troll though...
I LOVE MY XBOX OOOOOOOOOONE :)
Its more fun on Xbox One :)
It REALLY is though! ;)
Is it just me, or does this, COD:AW and Titanfall look very similar? I don't mean to complain, it just looks almost like the same futuristic areas and real fast gunplay. Halo 5 has something though that I can't really point out that makes me like this preview more. It looks more fun than Titanfall, and way more than COD. Might actually buy a XB1 in the future to try this :) Nice!
