They definitely look like in game assets though it the trailer was clearly rendered. Impressive if they are though. Looks amazing.

I miss when gameplay trailers showed actual gameplay, not something that took a room full of powerful computers 2 weeks to render... that shows the "game" from camera angles you'll never see during gameplay, that doesn't show ANY of the game's mechanics in action, etc.

Worse than bullshots IMO.

I've been playing video games for a long time, close to 20 years and I never recall a time where a video game trailer wasn't trying to sell you cut scenes.

Halo2ODST21184d ago

@umbrellaBlimp well halo 1 got gameplay trailers, so did halo 2, so where's the gameplay trailer for halo 5 ?

spicelicka1184d ago

Maybe you need to understand that it's not supposed to be a gameplay trailer! They obviously don't want to show the gameplay until E3. Then you will see actual gameplay trailers.

These cinematic trailers are just for hype and story, and they've been there for as long as I can remember. If they were totally replacing gameplay trailers then it would be a problem, but for now they want to keep the gameplay a secret until E3 so why doesn't it make sense to you.

mhunterjr1184d ago

I feel you, but this wasn't a gameplay trailer... Halo cutscenes have historically used in game asset... The This looks to be along that same vein...

tuglu_pati1184d ago

Highly doubt this are ingame graphics.

Father Murder X1184d ago

EA does that with Madden every year. Same with the Battlefront trailer. They never show gameplay.

NuggetsOfGod1184d ago


It will be a shooter. You aim and shoot.
With low aim assist.

Kal0psia1184d ago

This would remind me of how they've shown off Sunset Overdrive's reveal trailer or Hideki Kamiya suggesting to gamers to study Scalebound's trailer to get a good idea of how the game assets will be. So in a sense this may very well be possible gameplay mechanics.

It seems open-world esque with destruction and wall climbing? Also is that Locke's own personal aircraft he's jumping out of? Hmmm, looks interesting.

Regardless, there is no way that MS's flagship title is going to look poor.

And as gamers we all know that trailers look nothing like the actual gameplay. It has been proven over and over again.

And if there has been one thing Halo has been known for is tight control, terrific story, fun gameplay, not it's graphics.

Well Halo: CE and Halo 2 were visually outstanding for their time. With Halo 3, Bungie dropped the ball in terms of visuals.

Halo 4 changed that and 343 delivered an outstanding looking game. But I think they had to sacrifice a big part of the sandbox element in the campaign to achieve that.

This could look incredible but I reckon the campaign will take a hit in terms of resolution and possible frame rate if it is going to look as good as this (or as close to what we think the in-game bits are).

"This could look incredible but I reckon the campaign will take a hit in terms of resolution and possible frame rate if it is going to look as good as this (or as close to what we think the in-game bits are)."

Maybe 240p at 15fps. Otherwise, it won't be close. We've seen what the MP looks like already, use that as your metric, not this.

Septic1184d ago

The MP in beta form is hardly the best means to gauge the SP for Halo 5. Yeah you can make a judgement on the MP of Halo 5 from the beta but look at Halo 4 as an example of amazing visuals in the campaign and more average ones in the MP.

TheCommentator1184d ago


The game runs on DX12. The beta was on DX11. It is mp vs sp as well. No more accurate than using this trailer in my opinion.

Halo2ODST21184d ago (Edited 1184d ago )

Well they damn better not sacrifice the sandbox elements in halo 5 for the sake of graphics. Gameplay should come first, not cosmetics. I'm just saying that having fun should be more important than how pretty the game looks. Also halo isn't only known for it's graphics, it's known for it's big vehicle sections, gunplay, mission design, story, music

mhunterjr1184d ago

I think halo3 looked great when you consider all that was going on onscreen...

GMR_PR1184d ago


"The game runs on DX12"

Is this even confirmed? i dont think that is the case.

Yeah. Bungie never pushed graphics but that changed with Halo4/343i though. Halo 4 still looks great till this day. I think Halo 5 will be awesome Story, Graphics, Gameplay, Sound and MP.


You beat me to it.

magiciandude1184d ago

The excellent art style is also a part of the equation. Most FPS games I've played don't deliver a very inspiring atmosphere.

Trekster_Gamer1183d ago

Actually you can include graphics as well. Halo 4 still llooks looks fantastic !!!

BallsEye1183d ago

Going through Master Chief Collection with my wife, starting from Halo 1. Just reminded me how halo games are amazing even compared to best todays titles. Why? THe sandbox and AI. While we have amazing looking games like The Order or Ryse, AI there is so poor it gives very little joy compared to halo. Even Destiny is a Joke compared to Halo CE. I won't go into details, the ones who played it, know what I'm talking about. This game just more feels real than any GPU destroyer, despite graphics.

Halo 5 is 343i's redemption. I personally loved halo 4s campaign more than bungies story and had great visuals but dropped the ball on the multiplayer and mmc was a bit of a mess for a while but played beautify when it worked. Hopefully we see halo 5 launch smoothly and be as impactful as halo 2 was to bungie. Im sold story wise, Hunt the truth is proving to be very intense dispite already knowing the backstory.

Eonjay1184d ago

I don't see how this is an issue. In game assets can literately be anything.. so why not. So the same assets used in cutscenes can be used in game. I'm not sure what the question here is.

headblackman1184d ago (Edited 1184d ago )

im a huge halo fan and my limited edition copy is already preordered and paid for


OpieWinston1184d ago

I've been waiting to pre order my collectors until they announce what's in it... I want to see that statue, and then I can go to my Microsoft Store and preorder it XD.
