With the release of Halo 5: Guardians just around the corner, details about the game and it’s story has been few and far. What we do know is that we’re going to be expecting a big battle between series mainstay Master Chief and his Blue Team as they attempt to defend themselves against the newcomer Agent Locke and Fireteam Osiris who have been tasked with hunting down our heroes.
While that sound cool, we have to wonder, why Locke, what makes him such a badass? Hopefully this 5-Minute Gameplay footage from the campaign mission “Swords of Sanghelios,” which features a player-controlled Locke and AI controlled Fireteam, might explain that.
What we do see in the trailer, is just a small portion of the entire mission, which features a vast environment, new with new movement abilities including a devastating ground pound move.
Halo 5: Guardians is set to launch on October 27th exclusively for Xbox One.
