13 Amazing Things We Learned From the Halo 5 Trailer
By Lance Cartelli on
Spartan Locke got his own teaser trailer, just like Master Chief. Locke is a new character that should give us a fresh perspective on John-117.
Locke shows up on Master Chief's radar as an ally
Enemies appear red on the radar in Halo, but in Locke's case, he appears yellow. Yellow indicates a friendly in the Halo series.
Master Chief statue
A statue for John-117 is built in his honor on the battered planet. At one point, Master Chief was clearly lauded in his return.
A scorched world
It appears that the war has come to Master Chief's world. In the ravaged land, the only thing left standing is the statue.
Master Chief's statue is different in each trailer
The Master Chief trailer shows the statue dedicated to him has part of its head missing. Could this be symbolic of John's loss of Cortana?
Dual playable characters
In your hunt for the truth, Halo 5 looks to borrow from its predecessor, Halo 2, with two protagonists.
Spartan Locke blames Master Chief
Spartan Locke's version of the truth is that he attributes the war-torn world to Master Chief's betrayal.
Master Chief's wound is fresh
In Agent Locke's trailer, Master Chief is seen laying on the ground with a huge hole in his left shoulder. Due to the smoking coming from his now non-existent shoulder, the wound must be fresh. Maybe it was from Locke?
Master Chief and Spartan Locke face off
Both trailers build to a conclusion of a showdown between Master Chief and Spartan Locke, but is there a bigger bad guy out there?
"Duty and honor above all"
While Master Chief suffers from an apparent gunshot wound, you can clearly see his statue engraved with the words "duty and honor above all." Fitting for the Halo hero.
The UNSC Infinity has seen better days
The Navy warship that Colonel Lasky was left in charge of at the end of Halo 4 isn't doing so hot. The ship's on fire from whatever attacked the planet.
There's an old saying, there's two sides to every story--and then there's the truth. With both trailers premiering an hour after each other, is one of the depictions the truth?
Finally, a release date
The long-awaited release of the Xbox One exclusive Halo 5: Guardians was confirmed for an Oct. 27 release at the conclusion of both trailers.
