The aerial screen will launch into the sky on October 26 at approximately 7:30PM and progress down the coastline from Curl Curl to Coogee before making its way back. The screen will allegedly be visible from over three kilometres away. One lucky Halo fan will be playing the game from helicopter above Sydney's Bondi Beach. The fan will be chosen from "consumers who have pre-ordered Halo 5: Guardians or the Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition Console Bundle from MSStore.com.au."

Halo 5: Guardians will launch on October 27 exclusively for the Xbox One. The game will introduce a new multiplayer mode called WarZone, which supports up to 24 players. Need to brush up on the events of the previous Halo before diving into Halo 5? Xbox recently released a video which summarises the events of Halo 4 in 117 seconds.

Halo 5 will also have a day one update at launch, which weighs in at 9GB. You can also check out our unboxing video of the game's Xbox One bundle and collector's edition to see what it includes.
