New Halo 5 Trailers Confirm October Release Date

New trailers further hint at the convoluted ties between Master Chief and Spartan Locke.


Microsoft has unveiled two new trailers for its upcoming sci-fi shooter, Halo 5: Guardians. Posted on the official Xbox YouTube account, the trailers confirm the game's release date of October 27 this year on Xbox One.

The Xbox twitter account also posted tweets accompanying each trailer, with the text stating that they are two sides of the same story. One features Master Chief (embedded above) and the other features newcomer Spartan Locke (embedded below), who refers to Master Chief as "the one who was supposed to save us all."

Last week Microsoft launched a "Hunt the Truth" teaser website for Halo 5: Guardians offering vague new details about the upcoming game. The site poses the question, "Who is the real Master Chief?" with an audio recording that parodies the popular Serial podcast.

It has been confirmed that Agent Locke would be a playable character in Halo 5, and that Cortana will make an appearance in the game. Halo 5: Guardians is in development at 343 Industries exclusively for Xbox One. Producer Josh Holmes recently confirmed that the game will use dedicated servers for all multiplayer, including custom games.
