We get both another trailer and a Multiplayer trailer. The trailer main theme was the Cairo Station jump at the end of the Halo 2 mission, Cairo Station. The first trailer reveals who our mysterious ONI Spartan is, named Agent Locke, speaking to none other than Keith David himself (a.k.a. the Arbiter)! Basically, it seems like Locke is out to find the Master Chief and in some occasion, comes to meet the Arbiter to find information of some sorts.
We see a glimpse of what Halo 5 haves to offer for multiplayer, in the beta at least. War games lore seems to be back as well as abilities but here's the catch, it's know called "Spartan Abilities". We also see a SPARTAN using a Thruster Pack to knock down the blue team (Yeah! Suck it blues!) and a "slam" ability. There is also a BR with no scope. In the "Halo 5: Guardians poster, we see Mr. Locke with a BR that includes a scope.
Well there's that hefty news we got today. I'm going to relax as Waypoint states "HALO E3 NEWS - DAY 1" and that means Day 2, more stuff! If I missed anything, write it under the comment I'll create as soon this is done. A poll will release at the end of the E3 news for Halo. Sayonara!
