Firefly actor Nathan Fillion will reprise his role as Gunnery Sergeant Edward Buck in Halo 5: Guardians, it was announced this week as part of Game Informer's extended coverage of the upcoming shooter.

No Caption Provided

Buck previously showed up in Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach, but the character looks better than ever this time around, as you can see in the image embedded here.

In Halo 3: ODST, Buck was an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper, meaning he had no Master Chief-like super abilities. But now we see him wearing Spartan-like armor.

Game Informer's reveal trailer also shows that Buck is part of Fireteam Osiris, the squad led by Agent Locke and charged with hunting down Master Chief.

We're expecting more Halo 5 news at E3 next week, but for now, check out some recent stories below.
