Microsoft has released the box art for Halo 5: Guardians with an animated promo video.
The design establishes the “Master Chief vs. Spartan Locke” theme. There is also the addition of two four-person fireteams that you see in the video. Each one is led by one of the game’s main characters.
Microsoft describes them as “new Spartans,” and it makes me think that maybe there’s a chance that a 4-player co-op could be included in its campaign this time around.
Halo 5: Guardians continues the story of the Master Chief, and introduces a brand new central character to the Halo universe – Spartan Locke (as seen in the liveaction series “Halo: Nightfall”). Peace is shattered when colony worlds are unexpectedly attacked. And when humanity’s greatest hero goes missing, Spartan Locke is tasked with hunting the Master Chief and solving a mystery that threatens the entire galaxy.
Halo 5: Guardians will be released on Xbox One on October 27th, 2015.
