According to franchise director Frank O'Connor, 343 Industries "will do better next time", stating that the studio had learned a lot from the experience of creating such a thrilling and diverse game (''Halo 4''){{Citation needed}}. He also said that he and the rest of 343 Industries look forward to meeting expectations with ''Halo (Xbox One)'' as a "next-generation" title.

''Halo (Xbox One)''<ref name="Twitter.com Xbox">[https://twitter.com/Xbox/status/344182593647964160/ '''Twitter''' - ''Halo 5'' as hash-tag (#Halo5)]</ref> was teased during Microsoft's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2013 press conference. It opens on another planet with a large desert plain and a heavily cloaked figure walking across the sand hills. As the figure treads the sands, rocks suddenly start to float; and then they drop. After that, the sands in front of him begin to open up, only to give rise to a gargantuan, but unknown silver, bird-like figure with orange lights that holds a design similar to Forerunner technology. The cloaked figure holds out his hand, revealing a faded-deteriorating green, armored arm; and then the figure opens his hand, revealing the A.I. Data-core matrix chip that once held Cortana, now attached onto a dog tag chain. Then, the figure opens its "wings" and releases a large pulse, which knocks off the hood off of the cloaked figure, thus revealing him to be [[John-117]]. As the large figure rises from the sand, John clenches the AI chip in his fist and turns his cracked visor to the monstrosity before him. And then, the screen blackens, and the title of "Halo" appears. Also, "2014; Your Journey Begins On Xbox One" and the 343 Industries logo appear after the title fades away, which foretells the year of release.

Regarding the trailer featuring a cloaked John-117 walking slowly through the desert, Microsoft Studios vice president Phil Spencer said, ''“There was no ambiguity in not putting a number after the game. For me, what we showed wasn’t the game. Nobody should be confused on that. I didn’t really want to try to show something that was clearly a thought piece by the studio around where Master Chief is in his journey, and then drop the name after it and be somewhat disingenuous about that being the game. But I did want Bonnie [Ross] to come out and say 'First-person shooter. Master Chief.' Because they'll get the questions- 'Hey, is this ODST? What are you guys doing?'. Bonnie [Ross] comes out and reaffirms that 343 is building this game. It’s Master Chief. It’s a first-person shooter at 60 frames per second. It’s coming in 2014."''

{{Main|Spartan Abilities}}
  +
In ''Halo 5: Guardians'', [[Armor Ability|armor abilities]] are replaced with [[Spartan Abilities]].<ref>[https://twitter.com/quinndelhoyo/status/476055619951026177 '''Twitter''' - ''Quinn DelHoyo'']</ref> Spartan Abilities are distinct from Armor Abilities,<ref>[https://twitter.com/PlutonForEver/statuses/477247164653907968 '''Twitter''' - ''Bonnie Ross'']</ref> in that they are not limited by cooldowns or pickups. Rather, they are base player abilities which can be used by all at any time, similar to [[Dual Wielding]] or [[Boarding]]. The seven Spartan Abilities are:
  +
*Thruster Pack: Similar to Thruster Pack from ''Halo 4'', except now there is movement in any direction.<ref name="Spart">[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asLGIAQMoik '''Youtube:''' ''Halo 5: Guardians Beta - All 7 Spartan Abilities (Smart Scope, Charge, Etc.)'']</ref>
  +
*Ground Pound: While in air, you can slam down into the ground, potentially killing anyone below.<ref name="Spart" />
  +
*Clamber: If you miss a ledge, you can pull yourself up.<ref name="Spart" />
  +
*Slide: While sprinting, you can slide.<ref name="Spart" />
  +
*Charge: While sprinting, you can slam into an enemy.<ref name="Spart" />
  +
*Sprint: Sprinting like in ''Halo 4'', but after a certain amount of time, you will achieve the perfect velocity to activate the previous two abilities. Sprinting will stop shield recharge.<ref name="Spart" />
  +
*Smart Scope: A zoom function that applies to all weapons. Each weapon has a different degree of zoom.<ref name="Spart" />
  +
  +
===Campaign===
  +
The campaign is roughly twice as long as ''Halo 4''{{'}}s campaign.<ref>[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6arpQvRRFM '''Youtube:''' ''Halo 5 Guardians: New Gameplay Footage - IGN Live: Gamescom 2015'']</ref>

===Multiplayer===
  +
Multiplayer in ''Halo 5: Guardians'' is split into two main play styles: the classic [[Arena]] experience, and the new 24-player game, [[Warzone]]. [[Big Team Battle]] is not present in the game at launch, instead it was replaced with Warzone, however it was added post-launch.{{Ref/Website|RefName = NoBTB|URL = http://uk.ign.com/articles/2015/08/18/big-team-battle-will-not-be-in-halo-5-multiplayer-at-launch|SiteName = IGN|PageName = Big Team Battle Will Not Be in Halo 5 Multiplayer At Launch}} Spectator mode is allowed within multiplayer matches.<ref>[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzq2Wl0l7rg&list=UUptNOWTizPKjnHYLydzUWbw '''Youtube:''' ''Halo 5: Guardians - EPIC Competitive Features Revealed'']</ref> There are over 20 multiplayer maps at the launch of ''Halo 5''.

In addition to the limited edition case and disk, the bundle includes a 14-day Xbox Live trial, [[Halo: The Fall of Reach Animated Series]], a [[Warzone]] [[Requisition|REQ bundle]], dossiers on [[Blue Team]], [[Fireteam Osiris]] and [[SPARTAN-IV program|Spartan]] [[Jameson Locke|Locke]]'s orders, and finally a metal model of a [[Guardian]].

  +
===Limited Collector's Edition===
  +
{{Main|Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector's Edition}}
  +
The ''Halo 5: Guardians'' Limited Collector's Edition contained, in addition to the Limited Edition collectible content, a statue of [[John-117|Master Chief]] and [[Jameson Locke|Agent Locke]]. This statue can be pulled apart from its default state, to present the pair as enemies rather than a team like is presented by default. It cost $249.99.<ref>[http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/Halo-5-Guardians-Limited-Collectors-Edition-for-Xbox-One/productID.313091600 '''Microsoft Store''' - ''Halo 5: Guardians'' - Limited Collector's Edition]</ref>
  +
  +
Controversially, the Limited Collector's edition originally contained a digital download code rather than a physical disk. This was intended to allow purchasers of the Limited Collector's edition to pre-load the game. In response to a fan uproar at the lack of a disk, [[343 Industries]] stated that they were looking for a solution to satisfy those who want a disk.<ref>[http://www.gamespot.com/articles/fans-upset-250-halo-5-ce-only-includes-digital-cop/1100-6428800/ '''Game Stop''' - ''Fans Upset $250 Halo 5 CE Only Includes Digital Copy, But 343 Exploring Solutions'']</ref> Later, they confirmed that customers would be able to opt to have a disk rather than the default digital download code.<ref>[https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/community/blog-posts/halo-community-update-7-17-15 '''Halo Waypoint''' - ''Halo Community Update 7.17.15'']</ref>

===Digital Deluxe Edition===

A Digital Deluxe edition was also available for pre-order before the game's release.

In the earlier iterations of the game, [[Fireteam Osiris]] was actually supposed to be [[Fireteam Majestic]], composed of [[Olympia Vale]], [[Holly Tanaka]], [[Jameson Locke]], and [[Gabriel Thorne]].<ref>[https://www.artstation.com/artwork/BaL9z '''Artstation:''' ''Halo 5: Guardian Beta Menu Concepts'']</ref>

====Beta====

At least one known version of the game exists, the ''[[Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta|Halo 5: Guardians]]'' [[Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta|Multiplayer Beta]]. This version includes different menu systems featuring a different background and different music, armor descriptions feature the manufacturers, [[Empire]] had slightly different pathing, and armor colouring was able to be individually selected.<ref>[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YstBP7LLDUM '''Youtube:''' ''Halo 5 Beta Tour - Armor Customization, Menu, Gameplay, Settings'']</ref>

{{Quote|There was no ambiguity in not putting a number after the game. For me, what we showed wasn’t the game. Nobody should be confused on that. I didn’t really want to try to show something that was clearly a thought piece by the studio around where Master Chief is in his journey, and then drop the name after it and be somewhat disingenuous about that being the game. But I did want Bonnie [Ross] to come out and say 'First-person shooter. Master Chief.' Because they'll get the questions: 'Hey, is this ODST? What are you guys doing?' Bonnie [Ross] comes out and reaffirms that 343 is building this game. It’s Master Chief. It’s a first-person shooter at 60 frames per second. It’s coming in 2014.|Phil Spencer, regarding the teaser trailer<ref>[http://au.ign.com/articles/2013/06/25/microsoft-on-halo-5-halo-2-anniversary '''IGN''' - ''Microsoft on Halo 5, Halo 2 Anniversary'']</ref>}}

==Trivia==
 
==Trivia==
*At the end of ''[[Halo 4]]'', the pedestal containing [[Cortana]]'s [[data crystal chip]] was destroyed, most likely destroying the chip in the process. But because it was shown in the [[:File:Official E3 2013 Halo Teaser for the Xbox One|Teaser Trailer]], this remains open to speculation.
+
*The [[Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta|''Halo 5: Guardians'' multiplayer beta]] was accessible through ''[[Halo: The Master Chief Collection]]''.<ref>[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqD2MkOwDcU '''YouTube''' - ''Xbox E3 2014 Media Briefing: Halo'']</ref>
*According to Microsoft Studios' Phil Spencer, "''The upcoming Halo game is a genuine entry in the sci-fi franchise; the series is no longer a trilogy, but now a saga.''".<ref name="Ign">[http://www.gamespot.com/news/microsoft-new-halo-for-xbox-one-is-legitimate-6410554 '''Gamespot''' - The new Halo "Reclaimer" trilogy is no longer a trilogy. Now a "saga."]</ref>
+
*Exclusive content unlocked in ''Halo: The Master Chief Collection'' will carry over to ''Halo 5: Guardians''.<ref>[https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/games/halo-5-guardians '''Halo Waypoint''' - ''Halo 5: Guardians'']</ref>
**Even after that being said, most fans still refer to it as ''"Halo 5''" or ''"Halo Xbox One"''. The reason for this is that it is a placeholder name.
+
*''Halo 5''{{'}}s Theater mode writes replay files to the dedicated servers as the player is playing. These files can be accessed in real-time, enabling players to spectate others live.<ref>[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdLc3smbH8o&t=885 '''YouTube''' - ''Halo 5: Guardians GAMEPLAY - E3 2015 Interview'']</ref>
*In the section of the trailer in which John-117 slowly raises his head after clenching his hand into a fist (i.e. the 1:45 mark of the trailer), it appears that the track played during this moment is a remake of the ''[[Halo 3]]'' track ''Movement'', as both tracks have similar orchestra attached to them. This has yet to be confirmed or denied by [[343 Industries]].
+
*''Halo 5''{{'}}s internal development code name for the AI companions was "Musketeers."<ref>[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6FzQS3Yx-M '''YouTube''' - ''Halo 5 ViDoc: A Hero Reborn'']</ref>
  +
*''Halo 5: Guardians'' is the first ''Halo'' first-person shooter to be given an ESRB rating of T.

Halo 5: Guardians is a Halo game that was announced during Microsoft's E3 2013 presentation as the second chapter in the John-117 storyline of the Reclaimer Saga and the sequel to Halo 4. It was released on October 27, 2015.[7]

CampaignEdit

Characters and SettingEdit

Jameson Locke and John-117 are both playable characters in Halo 5: Guardians. The teammates of both Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris are also available for other players to play in the co-op campaign.[8][9]

GameplayEdit

Spartan AbilitiesEdit

Main article: Spartan Abilities

In Halo 5: Guardians, armor abilities are replaced with Spartan Abilities.[30] Spartan Abilities are distinct from Armor Abilities,[31] in that they are not limited by cooldowns or pickups. Rather, they are base player abilities which can be used by all at any time, similar to Dual Wielding or Boarding. The seven Spartan Abilities are:

  • Thruster Pack: Similar to Thruster Pack from Halo 4, except now there is movement in any direction.[32]
  • Ground Pound: While in air, you can slam down into the ground, potentially killing anyone below.[32]
  • Clamber: If you miss a ledge, you can pull yourself up.[32]
  • Slide: While sprinting, you can slide.[32]
  • Charge: While sprinting, you can slam into an enemy.[32]
  • Sprint: Sprinting like in Halo 4, but after a certain amount of time, you will achieve the perfect velocity to activate the previous two abilities. Sprinting will stop shield recharge.[32]
  • Smart Scope: A zoom function that applies to all weapons. Each weapon has a different degree of zoom.[32]

CampaignEdit

The campaign is roughly twice as long as Halo 4's campaign.[33]

MultiplayerEdit

Multiplayer in Halo 5: Guardians is split into two main play styles: the classic Arena experience, and the new 24-player game, Warzone. Big Team Battle is not present in the game at launch, instead it was replaced with Warzone, however it was added post-launch.[34] Spectator mode is allowed within multiplayer matches.[35] There are over 20 multiplayer maps at the launch of Halo 5. At least an additional 15 maps were added post launch, before June 2016.[36]

Main article: Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition

Including collectible items such as a limited edition game disk and a steelbook case, the Halo 5: Guardians limited edition is available for pre-order before the release of the game. In addition to the limited edition case and disk, the bundle includes a 14-day Xbox Live trial, Halo: The Fall of Reach Animated Series, a Warzone REQ bundle, dossiers on Blue Team, Fireteam Osiris and Spartan Locke's orders, and finally a metal model of a Guardian. The edition costs $99.99.[76]

Limited Collector's EditionEdit

Main article: Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector's Edition

The Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector's Edition contained, in addition to the Limited Edition collectible content, a statue of Master Chief and Agent Locke. This statue can be pulled apart from its default state, to present the pair as enemies rather than a team like is presented by default. It cost $249.99.[77]

Controversially, the Limited Collector's edition originally contained a digital download code rather than a physical disk. This was intended to allow purchasers of the Limited Collector's edition to pre-load the game. In response to a fan uproar at the lack of a disk, 343 Industries stated that they were looking for a solution to satisfy those who want a disk.[78] Later, they confirmed that customers would be able to opt to have a disk rather than the default digital download code.[79]

Digital Deluxe EditionEdit

Main article: Halo 5: Guardians Digital Deluxe Edition

A Digital Deluxe edition was also available for pre-order before the game's release. It cost $89.99, and contained a digital download of the game itself, a REQ bundle, and Halo: The Fall of Reach Animated Series.[80]

DevelopmentEdit

IterationsEdit

Early ConceptsEdit

In the earlier iterations of the game, Fireteam Osiris was actually supposed to be Fireteam Majestic, composed of Olympia Vale, Holly Tanaka, Jameson Locke, and Gabriel Thorne.[81]

BetaEdit

At least one known version of the game exists, the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta. This version includes different menu systems featuring a different background and different music, armor descriptions feature the manufacturers, Empire had slightly different pathing, and armor colouring was able to be individually selected.[82]

MarketingEdit

This section requires expansion.

Xbox One RevealEdit

Halo (Xbox One) was confirmed to be in development for the Xbox One during the Xbox One Reveal event on May 21, 2013.[1]

E3 2013Edit

“There was no ambiguity in not putting a number after the game. For me, what we showed wasn’t the game. Nobody should be confused on that. I didn’t really want to try to show something that was clearly a thought piece by the studio around where Master Chief is in his journey, and then drop the name after it and be somewhat disingenuous about that being the game. But I did want Bonnie [Ross] to come out and say 'First-person shooter. Master Chief.' Because they'll get the questions: 'Hey, is this ODST? What are you guys doing?' Bonnie [Ross] comes out and reaffirms that 343 is building this game. It’s Master Chief. It’s a first-person shooter at 60 frames per second. It’s coming in 2014.”
— Phil Spencer, regarding the teaser trailer[83]

Xbox WireEdit

On May 16, 2014, Bonnie Ross, General Manager of 343 Industries, announced on Xbox Wire that the Halo game will be named Halo 5: Guardians and will be released in Fall 2015.[84] Bonnie also announced that Halo 5: Guardians will run on a new and more powerful engine.

Hunt the TruthEdit

Main article: Hunt the Truth

On March 19, 2015, Frank O'Connor tweeted a link to a Tumblr page called Hunt the Truth.[85] On the page, there was countdown that had ended on March 22, 2015 at 1:00am UTC and had an image of the word "Traitor" engraved onto a bullet.[86] The page revealed to be about a journalist and war photographer, Benjamin Giraud, who is trying to find the truth about the Master Chief.[86]

TriviaEdit

  • The Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta was accessible through Halo: The Master Chief Collection.[87]
  • Exclusive content unlocked in Halo: The Master Chief Collection will carry over to Halo 5: Guardians.[88]
  • Halo 5's Theater mode writes replay files to the dedicated servers as the player is playing. These files can be accessed in real-time, enabling players to spectate others live.[89]
  • Halo 5's internal development code name for the AI companions was "Musketeers."[90]
  • Halo 5: Guardians is the first Halo first-person shooter to be given an ESRB rating of T.

NotesEdit

  1. Sister ships are always the same class. The Undiminished Entelechy was, as such, a CCS-class battlecruiser, but simply substituted to be a different class in the simulations: "for captains and admirals alike who are looking to gain any tactical advantage they can, both on the ground and in space. How might the events of Alpha Halo have been different if the Fleet of Particular Justice had been made up of different ships in the Covenant arsenal?" - Grimbrother One, Canon Fodder
