The hunt begins Fall 2015 with the release of Halo 5: Guardians where the truth is never what it seems.
just crazy. so curious about the campaign now.
Safe to say everyone's mind is blown at this point. Hell i was even suprised the commercial aired during the walking dead
Mind blown? Seriously, how? It's just a short CGI ad with no action or whatsoever. I'm trying my best not to sound like trolling but although admittedly I'm not a fan, can you please tell me how this is anywhere near mind blowing? This is a 100% honest request.
@badz149 The hype is in the potential for how the story will turn out to be. If you've ever been hyped for a game or movie in your life you can understand. Obviously you don't know the story so you have no interest, but those of us who have been following the huge and deep story of Halo for so many years it's BIG DEAL! Also it tells us that the campaign might have two playable sides, one from Locke's side, one from Chief's side.
@badz149 Because its a teaser into what the campaign will be about. Not that hard to understand really it looks great. Gameplay at e3 probably if that's what tickles your fancy.
Agreed, MIND OFFICIALLY BLOWN!! defo i have now gone bananas! And was that the release date at the bottom? 27/10/15? lord all mighty i cant wait to smash through the Halo 5 single player. I have to say i LOVE MICROSOFTS HYPE MACHINE!! They really are masters at marketing thier big franchises and movig units. Its wierd, no matter how much i see people hating on the xbox one, no matter how many blunders ms has made this generation so far, no matter the fact that i always buy every platform every generation and so have lots to play, I JUST LOVE MY XBOX ONE!!! there i said it Seriously its a great little console, yes it has flaws as does EVERYTHING but regardless i find myself rooting for the underdog! I have this feeling that Halo 5 will be the first xbox one game which will truly show us how powerful the x1 is! I swear i spend more time gaming and using the media capabilities of my x1 the most vs my wiiu, ps4 and pc. Even now its a complete different console to what was launched and being in the preview program makes me realise that this console will be so much better over time, as am sure the ps4 will too. I think these consoles, the PS4,X1 WiiU are seriously underrated and being underestimated! With time i think we will see these consoles shine and give us some real gems. All i can say is with zelda wii u delayed, and uncharted 4 delayed Halo 5 is going to be my big fall game. Thanks ms for not letting us down!! Game on my fellow gamers, and remember All platforms are great.
@spicelicka.. im also a big halo fan specially halo2.. got all achievements for halo3 and currently waiting for halo5.. but in all honesty.. i wudnt exactly call halo's story "DEEP" specially how halo4 can be categorized as a "Filler" where it feels pretty obvious halo3 was the end of the story arc.. but still this indeed is pretty intriguing.. hope there is a much more deeper narrative this time around as im mainly a single player gamer and as much as i hate to admit that ive outgrown halo's tedious campaign i still want this one to transcend to the next level like i always wanted it to after halo2. there is so much lost potential with halo chief's abilities and character they can tap into. no one can deny Master cheif is one of the greatest baddasses in videogame history!
Whoa...I just saw the other trailer, now Im wondering what the hell is going on???? @spicelicka yeah seems like its guaranteed you will play as both, which now makes perfect sense given the "hunt for the truth" ads= I hope they feel different with some unique abilities. I also agree those who haven't been diehard Halo fans since the original may not get why this news is very exciting.
"I'm trying my best not to sound like trolling but although admittedly I'm not a fan," Well then Halo fans don't need to explain anything to you then.
So I guest it's true when Mike Colter spill the beans about his character Agent Locke having a big part in Halo 5 Guardians. Sounds like the campaign may have a 2 way plot twist to it, but my concern is will the Arbiter play a big part as well. Great job MS for placing Halo 5 commercial during The Walking Dead Season Finale. Now can we get an AMC app... they have some good shows coming.
so basically.. there are two sides to the story. if you watch the second one.. it is kind of mind bending. i wouldn't say - mind blowing though. if it was a PS exclusive, i would have still said the same.
Holy SHIT! As someone who has read all the books all the games, all the minigames i am gobsmacked! i am so hyped... i shouldnt have watched the trailer. this seems like the kind of story you get from the books. not the games. Speechless really. Bring it 343i i cant wait.
Now THIS, was a commercial!
Chief should have had a quarter of the speaking he did in this commercial. They've giving him an air of humanity he doesn't have which ruins his character. It's the reason why commercials such as this one I'm linking were so amazing. Those simple two words with his actions were much more powerful than that boring monologue. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
MS gettin the campaigne goin for this game reaally early. Must be the biggest Halo if that's the case.
Or they are just advertising the console because there is nothing else for the next few months.
I need this game now. I need it NOW.I cant take it anymore......
So we have got Locke's side and Chief's. Now we just need the truth.
I wonder if they will make you play both sides to find out what the truth really is? Guess I'll have to wait to find out. Will gladly do that.
Yeah, let's play the same game twice. Sounds like a riveting campaign.
I am inclined to think there are going to be player choices that will impact direction of the story kinda like Mass Effect 3
Isn't it obvious the truth is what you make of it... I think both Chief and Locke will be both playable characters and there will be multiple endings to Halo 5. "There are 2 sides to every story." - good vs bad is all a matter of perspective and not everything is so black and white. So this would lead me to believe there is multiple endings... and 343 have just shown us the outcome (not literally) of both. Perhaps there leaving it up to us to determine who the bad guy is and who the good guy is... Chief and Locke are two sides of the same coin. There is two sides, two truths, two stories, two characters...
good shout out sir, smart money is on your synopsis for sure
@becauseImBatman I hope you are right because that sounds awesome!
I hate to say it but there can only be one ending. The Halo Universe moves in one direction. The next game can't be based off of two endings / different deaths or whatever way this game goes.
@Shelkm Maybe your right maybe there is only one ending but that doesn't mean there isn't two paths to that ending, after all we don't see (or hear) either characters pull the triggers and the end of each Ad. There is no denying the emphasis on both of the characters and there different perspectives... "Two sides to every story" And the caption for the second trailer: "oןɐɥ# ɥʇnɹʇǝɥʇʇunɥ# ˙ʎɹoʇs ʎɹǝʌǝ oʇ sǝpıs oʍʇ ǝɹɐ ǝɹǝɥʇ " is a mirror of "there are two sides of every story #huntthetruth #halo" just like the Chief is a mirror of Locke in the first image they released last year: http://popcultureblog.dalla... Chief and Locke are two sides of the same coin. There is two sides, two truths, two stories, two characters... possibly two endings ?
@Bat Great Synopsis indeed. A way different take on any of the previous Halo's so far.
It's going to be like halo 2 with a converging story line.
Chief its you? masterchief join to the darkside =(
Holy .... crap. Things just got real. My hype level just rose through the roof. I hope this is a hint that Halo 5 is going to give players choices that will drastically change the outcome of the game. Sounds freaking amazing. Mass effect structure meets halo's legendary gameplay mechanics.
I'm confused, and I don't know if I can wrap my head around any of this. But, I like this video more so any the other one.
Saw both of these during The Walking Dead tonight. Can't wait for this game. I'm hyped!
The hype train is real
I got goosebumps
Whatttt in the holy hellll, they just took my mind and slapped it...then they took my mind AGAINN and slapped it!! Dufaq!
They totally messed with my head with these 2 trailers. Overall there is one thing for sure. I want Halo 5 now. October can't come soon enough.
So two different campaigns maybe? What ever it might be hinting at, this got me excited for Halo 5 now.
Only Halo can have this type of Marketing..
I'm so excited and I just can't hide it
It's safe to say I haven't been this hyped for any game before. Seeing the Halo story mature this far has been a hell of a journey. Halo 5 will be the best Halo in the franchise mark my words, coming from someone who's been with this series from day one. Will always be my favorite video game series of all time.
It has the potential to be epic. Im definitely hyped! Its gonna have two campaigns. You be able to play the story as Chief and Locke and get two different endings. This game is gonna be sick! I'm playing Lockes story first... well I hope.
I don't get the hate for Locke, to me he is really intriguing and his acting in the new trailer was phenomenal. Very excited to see how this story unravels. I'm convinced we aren't getting the typical 7-8 hour mostly linear campaign, I think we're going open world.
oh my god i am so ready
This is truly the only special xbox has going for it...this is why I have a xbox lol
Nope there are plenty of games to look forward to, just they are far away.
Really? Gears and Halo are only thing that are special to me...oh and Crack down....but that's it....quantum break will probably be playable on my pc in a year after launch just like Alan wake and Tomb raider will probably be on it after 3 months....there's really nothing else I want with my xbox...
WTF, I want Halo 5 now! That was awesome!
What took you so long (in my kojima voice)
"Kept you waiting, huh?"
Chief will totally kick Isaac Clarke's ass any day of the week! :P
u do get that locke looks awful lot like isaac clarke yea? it was a joke disagreeing folks.. i didnt mean the actual isaac clarke
ok im so dumb saw the old trailer by mistake... just saw the new trailer 3 times... and have to say.. cant help but get hyped about this!!
Well did not expect the old reversal there the switcheroo very cool .
This game will be amazing. I loved halo 4 i think 343 did a great job with it. And no doubt they have been listening to the community regarding multiplayer. I am very much looking forward to it :)
oh look at me i'm going Bananas lol
Great great ads...Agent Locke is perfect he is sarcastic deadly and upgraded.... I like his commercial more...weird?.idk...I love the new energy the new vibe and the mystery .....343 is doing a great job H5=10mil
Ooh, Halo 5: Guardians hype just got real! I can feel it, pumping through my veins! Go Halo, go Halo!
I am 100% down with this game!
Just gotta toss this out there... if MS has been this upfront and public about Halo 5 already AND Forza 6 already then how crazy is E3 gonna be for MS?
Gameplay on both is a big place to start.
I've not seen it yet, is it gameplay or just cgi?
Whose with me! Let's go halo!
A Halo 5 commerical... only to show the XB1 with MCC bundle. Hmmm... well played MS. The uninformed may think that Halo 5 is being bundled with the XB1 for $349 at this moment in time... well played MS. Pay attention kids and parents.
Well damn!! This trailer got me kinda hyped up.
