“Halo 5: Guardians” fans will be glad to know the latest "Halo" title is not just for show. In fact, it’s worthy to be the headliner for Microsoft's next lineup of games.
Microsoft revealed the new trailer for "Warzone," the multiplayer campaign for “Halo 5: Guardians.” Complete with in-game scenes, Warzone is described as a place where anything can happen. According to Microsoft, it is the biggest and most ambitious thing ever done in "Halo," as seen in the trailer below.
Polygon adds that the multiplayer online mode has been built from the ground up, so it is tailored for the Xbox One through and through. The Warzone will allow 24 players into the mode to explore a map that is reportedly four times bigger than previous maps. All this will run at 60FPS for the Xbox One, with the graphics showing the improvement and upgrade from past "Halo" games.
Another aspect of “Halo 5: Guardians” is the four-player co-op experience. The new feature allows the team to work together in taking down a new enemy, reports Venture Beat. The co-op will have two teams, the Blue Team and the Osiris Team, spearheaded by the rivals Master Chief and Spartan Locke.
The unveiling at Electronic Entertainment Expo 2015 is not the only promotion for “Halo 5: Guardians.” Ford has also partnered with Microsoft in creating a one-of-a-kind Ford F-150 that has been outfitted to become the Halo Sandcat. Apart from modifications, the overall look of the vehicle is one that "Halo" fans are familiar with, reports Digital Trends. It looks a lot like a UNSC vehicle, with the "Halo" olive color.
Moreover, there is an Xbox One and two controllers included in the vehicle, with the front seats showcasing displays for gaming. While this is predominantly a marketing ploy, Microsoft has yet to announce if it will be given away after the E3 event.
Finally, the latest episode of Hunt the Truth is also out, and it’s looking bad for fictional journalist Benjamin Giraud. This viral campaign has taken fans by storm, delivering episode after episode loaded with news about the coming game. “Halo 5: Guardians” is set to launch Oct. 27.
