Halo 5: Guardians will be the GameInformer magazine cover of July

You've played the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta. Now it's time to uncover the mysteries behind the story.

We went to 343 Industries to get the first hands-on with Master Chief's campaign. As you can see from the cover imagery, the Chief is now accompanied by the legendary Blue Team in both single-player and four-player co-op. Linda, Fred, and Kelly were abducted when they were six years old alongside John to be turned into Spartan-II super soldiers. This tight-knit squad grew up together and battled through many adventures in the expanded fiction, but this will mark their first significant role in a core Halo game. With the loss of Cortana in Halo 4, Blue Team steps up to interact with Chief, appear in cutscenes, and accept commands from him in single-player. In co-op play, everyone takes on a specific member, each with a different loadout unique to their specialty.

Buck confirmed for Halo 5. Thank you!

OpieWinston1280d ago

Much like Halo 4... The future Halos will be what Microsoft Studios turns to and says "Those are our best looking games".

Remedy is the only studio they fund that comes close to this detail.

Nosred1280d ago

These graphics are insane I can not wait to play.

They ingame or they cut scenes? I thought the Witcher 3 faces were good those faces are on another level again!

GusBricker1280d ago

Damn, Nathan Fillion doesn't even look that good on Castle.

Septic1280d ago


If the in game models truly look like that, then oh my days.

KionicWarlord2221280d ago

Jesus. Hype levels are going into overdrive now. Bring on e3.

DragonbornZ1280d ago (Edited 1280d ago )

Sweet. Baby. Jesus. Lookin damn good and at 60 fps too :o
Gat dayum!

@OpieWinston Indeed, which I was kind of skeptical of since they'e going for 1080p 60fps. I know Halo 4 looks great on 360, but they had more to work with graphically since it was at 30 fps. They did it again tho, as this looks really great!

@Moldiver I remember em, but fanboys, not fans mayne.

343_Guilty_Spark1280d ago

Honestly those are best looking character models I have seen all generation. 343i knows graphics.

Simply stunning!! Wow!!!

Fin_The_Human1280d ago

Was that second image Charlie Sheen?

4Sh0w1280d ago (Edited 1280d ago )

Damm, you guys just don't understand how bad I want this game. Shiiii I miss the Beta, I would have gladly paid to keep the damm thing until Halo5 launched.

vvvEdit chritocolus, that's some great info, Wow, if I could I'd kiss 343 devs right now.

Bigpappy1280d ago

Could you ask the mod's to let me use the 'F' word a few times in this tread?

More info courtesy of Reddit User "Dieklobrill"

GameInformer Info: Halo 5 will launch with over 20 multiplayer maps. 15 more maps being added by June 2016 - for free!!!!

Just got the Gameinformer digitally. Scans are not allowed, so just take that piece of info for now :)
They decided to give away all future maps for free to not divide the community. THANKS 343 for listening!
completely new "epic" multiplayer mode to be presented at E3. They are working on this mode for more than 3 years. Sounds like a huge Big Team Battle mode. It does "incorporate all aspects of the Halo sandbox for the very first time ever".
Drop-in/drop-out 4 player co-op in campaign.
in singleplayer, you can give your mates stratetic commands.


OpieWinston1280d ago (Edited 1280d ago )

All future maps for free? Now I have to buy the CE.... I was wondering why there was no War Games Pass.

Halo 5 is going to be the Halo 2 that 343i makes. It builds their fanbase.

So if this is true they'll either have a two parter presence at the press conference like last year... or they'll be revealing Multiplayer mode on Xbox Daily.

Giving commands really fits with Tim Longos background.
My dream may actually come true of having Halo 5 be like Halo meets Republic Commando.

Overload of Halo maps.... Not making it easy for me to wait till October 343!

christocolus1280d ago

The more i hear about Halo5 the more i love the game. E3 is too far away.

KionicWarlord2221280d ago xbox one owners will be EATING very good this fall and beyond.


IVanSpinal1280d ago

Thanks for that beautiful info. Now im sooo happy

Septic1280d ago (Edited 1280d ago )

+ bubs!

Omg that has made my day. Please be good !!

Rookie_Monster1280d ago (Edited 1280d ago )

Thanks Christocolus,

You are one of the few legit gamers on this site that totally deserve all your bubbles as you constantly give us great information on Xbox related materials for the xbox fans on N4G. Keep up the good work. But since this is N4G, you gotta have a disagree from some known hater regardless of how great and important this information is. LOL

Uncharted 4 is going to have competition with those inengine facial models. Also a mix between Halo and Ghost Recon sounds really cool.

Halo2ODST21280d ago (Edited 1280d ago )

They are 2 very different games! I'm not saying any of them are bad, just different genres

OpieWinston1280d ago

Bare in mind Tim Longo is the CD of Halo 5.

He was the CD of Star Wars: Republic Commando/Tomb Raider Reboot.

spicelicka1280d ago

Hoolyy shitt I'm shivering from excitement!! If those are in-game models, good god those are some amazing graphics!!

Halo2ODST21280d ago

If so, then halo 5 won't have any sandbox areas for scarab fights or just big battles, it happened in Halo 4, hope they don't do this again!

Moldiver1280d ago

there were no scarabs in H4 because the covenant were no longer the main foe. certainly not a technical reason for it.More of a design and story one. Besides, if you remember the first halo 5 trailer where that big robo-phoenix looking thing comes out the sand, thats as good as any indication that we will be fighting some larger than the screen foes.

WizzroSupreme1280d ago

Can't wait to see if they'll be having another public beta after or during E3.
