Halo 5 Guardians Master Chief Ad

The hunt begins Fall 2015 with the release of Halo 5: Guardians where the truth is never what it seems.

The story is too old to be commented.

just crazy.
so curious about the campaign now.

MelvinTheGreat2124d ago

Safe to say everyone's mind is blown at this point. Hell i was even suprised the commercial aired during the walking dead

badz1492124d ago

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.

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.

GenuineGamer2124d ago


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.

LonDonE2124d ago

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.

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.

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!

4Sh0w2124d ago (Edited 2124d ago )

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.

AngelicIceDiamond2124d ago

"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.

Gotcha52124d ago (Edited 2124d ago )

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.

nix2124d ago

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.

JonnyBadfinger2124d ago

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!

garrettbobbyferguson2124d ago (Edited 2123d ago )

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.

AngelicIceDiamond2124d ago

MS gettin the campaigne goin for this game reaally early. Must be the biggest Halo if that's the case.

kraenk122124d ago

Or they are just advertising the console because there is nothing else for the next few months.

christocolus2124d ago

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.

Bigpappy2124d ago

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.

BinaryMind2124d ago

Yeah, let's play the same game twice. Sounds like a riveting campaign.

OC_MurphysLaw2124d ago

I am inclined to think there are going to be player choices that will impact direction of the story kinda like Mass Effect 3

BecauseImBatman2124d ago (Edited 2124d ago )

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...

Thefreeman0122124d ago

good shout out sir, smart money is on your synopsis for sure

GenuineGamer2124d ago


I hope you are right because that sounds awesome!

Shelkm2124d ago

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.

BecauseImBatman2124d ago (Edited 2124d ago )


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 ?

AngelicIceDiamond2124d ago

@Bat Great Synopsis indeed. A way different take on any of the previous Halo's so far.

cl19832124d ago

It's going to be like halo 2 with a converging story line.

Chief its you? masterchief join to the darkside =(

nicksetzer12124d ago (Edited 2124d ago )

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.

GCO Gamer2124d ago

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.
