343 Industries' Chris Lee says this is the studio's most ambitious title yet.
I already pre-ordered Halo 5 and October 27th can't get here soon enough I love how Halo has made the jump to PBR too the materials look so good
Same here. So psyched to play the campaign and Warzone. I've played all the entries in the series and I'm so hyped for this. I hope 343i delivers with this game. I need to see how this whole locke vs MC thing plays out especially the story behind the new spartans. Will locke die at the end? Probably. Or maybe he'll become the lead character in a spinoff title after this.
Someone actually down voted you for being psyched for a game? Regardless I'm just as excited as you are! Can't wait for 24 player multiplayer and a campaign built for current gen hardware :D
Don't get how it's using full Xbox one power and it dips to resolutions sub 720p and dips under 60fps. Are they making use of the extra power released from kinect? 343 still has some ways to go before coming close to filling bungies shoes. Just because they are working a major franchise like Halo doesn't mean they will get a free pass.
E3 demo was like Halo 4 remastered ...where is the leverage??
Yes! I'm charged up for the Campaign & Campaign Co-op. Still disappointed in the omission of Splitscreen Campaign Co-op, however, I'm getting the Forza Motorsport 6 XBOX ONE; my daughter & I will Campaign Co-op on 2 XBOX ONEs. I still feel for the homessage that can't do the second as myself & others. I already have my Halo 5 copies of Legendary on pre-order for my kids. It's our most anticipated game!
Halo 5 is Microsoft's biggest franchise with the biggest development and budget ever for an Xbox game and is being programmed using cutting edge SDKs. The performance that 343i achieve will be the best possible for the Xbox One at this stage of the generation. Many third party games have had a lesser performance on XBO than on PS4. Overlooking the spec differences, dedicated fans have explained this by saying it is because the PS4 was the lead platform and less development time was spent learning the nuances of the XBO. Halo 5 is different. There is a lot of expectation on the game because whatever the resolution and FPS of it will be the best possible on the platform, it will be foolish to expect third party publishers to achieve better. In simple English Halo 5 will demonstrate the limit of the XBO hardware - so it better be good!
@sureshot Just another day on N4g. Let them downvote all they like. It's all they can do.disagreeing with my comment won't change my opinion about the game. Lol. @otherzinc Legendary edition? Nice.looking forward to the campaign.I usually co-op with my brother. @Pumblecook well said. Some people just want the game to fail. So sad. @dirkdaddy Smh. This again. The E3 demo is not the final thing. Frank o connor has stated this. They are still polishing the game. @breakpad Ok. -_-
So is it using DX12, because if not - it's not really leveraging the console's full power. Just saying....
It doesnt use DX12 and devs always say they are pushing based on their current experience with hardware. I ts not an entirely accurate statment but it is the most honest, based on their current level of how to best use the hardware and the API they are using. How would they be using DX12 when DX12 is not yet finalised as an API? they are pushing based on their current knowledge and API.
343 have built the game for XB1, they'd already be using the most recent API available or failing that write the assembly code themselves for their engine. The game would be running as well or better than DX12 would make it run. DX12 isn't going to garner any better performance than XB1's most flagship, premium title. This is Halo we're talking about, the biggest selling franchise Microsoft has, they're not going to hold back on this game.
"343 have built the game for XB1, they'd already be using the most recent API available" Not disputing that. But tha API that replaces the current one is DX12, which happens to perform better than the current API. And also is not finalised. Why do people have such a hard time understanding this? Im am not saying we are suddenly going to be seeing 4K gaming. Simply that based on the current API they have done the best they could do. but its not the API that gets the most out of the platform. That will undoubtedly be DX12. yes PC will see the big gains, but X1 will still see better gains than its previous APIs including the DX11.1 based code underpinning H5.
dx12 is not gonna appear on most things till decemeber, microsoft already mentioned that, so meaning the team is using whatever they have on the current level. either way this game be butter smooth, id be mad if this game start laggin bad...
You realize DX12 doesn't actually add power right? . . . just makes the development of games more streamlined.
Shhhh your ruining their idea that DX12 is some sort of secret sauce thats going to majorly boost the X1s power....Nevermind that EVERYONE be it MS or tech people keep stating that NO DX12 isn't going to do anything special for X1....
That's ok. Underpromise, overdeliver. Better than showing flawless, fake 1080p and 60fps, delayed until 2016, and only hit 30fps.
I'm pumped. October hurry
Can't wait to get my hands on warzone..looks like tons of fun
So pumped for warzone and 4 player coop!
I'm looking forward to the campaign more than anything... The Master Chief Collection made me respect the games even more, and I'm truly excited for Halo 5... The story is very good. Multiplayer looks promising too... The removal of loadouts is a fantastic idea. Halo 4 MP was and still is plagued by the BR... It's insanely hard to counter with any weapon that's not another BR... But regardless this is my top priority this year... It always used to be CoD, but now... There's a new Master for my gaming time... :)
Been waiting for a great Halo game to come around; haven't enjoyed the series since Halo 3 which was incredible on 360. Not very impressed with the graphics and doesn't look that much different than last gen. Also, some of the animations such as people jumping ledges, debris falling, etc. just do not look very polished. At least not polished enough to consider this built ground up utilizing the most power, etc. etc. Enemy disintegration did look pretty nice however. Still waiting for that exclusive system seller to pickup an Xbox One, this just isn't it.
And uncharted or Horizon is not enough for me to buy a playstation.
Im gonna wait to see what black friday has in store for us... but buying an XB1 just for this game seems completely justified to me.
@konston3647 Halo 5 and BC are 2 of the major reasons why many of my friends still on xbx 360 will be getting Xbox Ones this fall. I also have friends waiting for other black friday bundles but Halo 5 is top of the list. I'm sure there'll be some awesome deals i.e Fallout 4, TombRaider, Halo5, Gears ultimate, Forza 6 and even Ori&Rare Replay bundles. Its going to be an amazing holiday. I'm even considering selling my current console and replacing it with one of the better holiday bundles.
Can't wait! Glad it is taking advantage of the hardware. No doubt it will be splendid at launch. IMO MS have the best shooter and racer and action game this year in Halo 6, Forza 5, and Tomb Raider with Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 fighting for the RPG crown.
Halo 5 is going to be awesome. So many disagrees here to Halo 5 comments. Most likely trolls...
my preorder is already paid for :) i'll be at the gamestop midnight release for this one. GAME ON!!!
This is the only game to make me think about getting an xb1! Only reason im hesitant is i didn't enjoy halo 4 at all :( the campaign catered towards the book knowledge/extended lore etc which left me as a game player feel a bit lost with the plot unfortunately, and the multiplayer was a massive disappointment But it looks like they have taken a lot of this onboard and made an effort to improve the multiplayer rather than make it conform to the masses
If you played the beta you would know this already its good.
As above i dont have the system at this point, a mate at work really enjoyeed the beta so is swaying me but at the back of my mind i cant justify the console plus a sub to live for 1 game :( is MCC working online now, that may help me lol
One of the few games I buy at release as well as gears and forza.
Cant wait for this game!!
Halo 5 is gonna be awesome!!!
Kinger8938 yes MCC is working.Xbox one is better then people think buy one you wont regret it.
