It’s this month, less than 30 days away, that we get our hands on what could be the best Halo game we have seen to date. Halo 5: Guardians is the evolutionary leap forward for this franchise and could see it jump back into the spotlight as the Xbox’s premier first-person shooter. 343 Industries have promised they have learned from their mistakes and crafted this new experience with a huge chunk of fan feedback. With a beta earlier this year and, more recently, hands on playtime at conventions we here at This Gen Gaming are very excited about the future of this much loved franchise. Here are our top 5 reasons to be excited for Halo 5: Guardians.
This gamemode made up a huge amount of the marketing material for this game earlier this year. Before 343 started talking about Locke vs Chief, the big thing that everyone was talking about was this player vs player vs environment mode, looking to take the best of Halo’s iconic campaigns and innovative arena multi-player and splice them together for the ultimate experience. You can expect to see all of the usual multi-player with excellent additions like boss characters, AI enemies and allies and an excellent requisition system allowing you the perfect weapon for every situation.
We got a little bit of hands-on with this mode at EuroGamer and although it had a few balance issues that appeared to need fixing, it was a fun mode that once you’re used it, you’ll spend hours with your team having a great time killing AI and other spartans.
