Halo 5 Guardians preview: 343 could be taking Halo's multiplayer to its zenith

It is safe to say 343 Industries' tenure with the Halo series has been a bit rocky so far. In 2012, Halo 4 proved to be a perfectly fine but underwhelming continuation of the main series, while 2014's Master Chief Collection was nothing short of a disaster at launch – taking months to reach a working, playable state.

The team is yet to really make the series its own but from what we have seen so far of 2015's Halo 5: Guardians, it appears to be growing more at ease and more confident with the licence bestowed on it by Microsoft after Bungie hightailed it to go and make Destiny with Activision.

Zenith "the time at which something is most powerful or successful." I had to check that one up but apart from that, I completely agree. Warzone alone looks amazing!

After playing the beta I completely trust 343s ability to make the game amazing.

I was done with Halo after reach didn't play halo 4 and was convinced it had got stale due to not enough risks taken in gameplay but 343 took the risks and I think it's paid off

Well it will be the most powerful in terms of engine or graphics used...and console it's on.

Successful is still up in the air, but I don't see why this won't be a great seller for the XB1.

My finely honed halo spartan instincts are ready.

Something that I'vly got me excited for the game was the diversity in power weapons. It's no longer just the BR rules all. I saw in the tournament and clips that the pistol is now a 4 shot, along with the assault rifle being a good option as well, and now news of the shotgun being very powerful.
I know its small, but that is something that bothered me with old halo. One gun (Battle Rifle) shouldn't rule a whole map.

I'm excited about Halo E-Sports to be honest. This seems to be the first title sense Halo 3 that could play a major role in that space again.

I love watching the pros go at it.
