In the new Hunt the Truth episode, which marks the 10th run of Microsoft and 343 Industries’ viral campaign for “Halo 5: Guardians,” Master Chief’s image rises from the ashes. Fictional investigator Benjamin Giraud is now keeping watch after he dropped the big bomb related to his research on Master Chief. After the disappearance of Mshak Moradi, the hacker who had been helping Giraud with his research and FERO being MIA, daily life has become a paranoia trip for Giraud.
Freshman senator Del Rio wasted no time in pushing his own advocacy by using the Biko incident to turn the tide and the image of the Master Chief following Giraud’s revelation. However, one of Giraud’s sources, Rey, has stumbled upon a very interesting cover-up, this time involving Biko. It involves a second video on the supposed assault in Biko—and the fact that Master Chief is actually a hero in the picture.
Developer 343 Industries also has something for fans before the awaited event. Gamingbolt spotted Josh Holmes’ statement over at the TeamBeyond forums, where he discusses some of the playlists that can be expected for “Halo 5: Guardians.”
For the most part, the developer plans to put quality over quantity in terms of choosing the game types for the latest “Halo” iteration, Holmes said: The goal is to end up with a core set of game types that will be meticulously created for fan enjoyment.
“The focused approach means that we are building a core set of game types and polishing them to be great,” said Holmes in the forums, as quoted by Gamingbolt. “The key of course is to make sure that we have the right core set.”
However, even though the number of game types is not the main concern for 343 Industries, it does not mean that these will be limited only to what comes out at launch. Holmes reassures fans that post-launch content for “Halo 5: Guardians” will be substantial compared to previous Halo titles. These plans will be laid out in more detail at E3 2015.
For now, Halo fans who also have the “Halo: The Master Chief Collection” can look forward to content recently released. Announced over at the Xbox Wire, the new content comes in the form of “Remnant,” a re-imagined version of Relic, the multiplayer map in “Halo 2.”
At the same time, the Halo 3: ODST campaign will also be launched in its enhanced version at 1080p and 60fps. Players can get both Remnant and the new campaign. The former is offered as a free game content update. The latter is free to players who had logged in to the Xbox Live account to play “Halo: The Master Chief Collection” between Nov. 11 and Dec. 19, 2014, when problems plaguing the title were at their worst. For those who are not eligible for the latter content, it is now available on the Xbox Store for $4.99.
