The Galaxy is threatened, and only one man will be the hero of Humanity...
One of the biggest upcoming releases for the Xbox One this year is the ninth instalment in the Halo franchise, Halo 5 Guardians. With a release date of October 27th exclusive to Xbox One, the latest in the Halo series originated by Bungie is developed by 343 Industries in the wake of their split with Microsoft and the development of Halo 4. Halo 5: Guardians follows on from the Reclaimer Saga started with Halo 4, once again following the story of The Master Chief, locked in a blood feud with new playable character Jameson Locke; a Spartan ONI Agent hell-bent on bringing about the Master Chief’s destruction as traitor to humanity. Has the Chief - John-117 - haunted by the events in the previous games and no longer the young Spartan he used to be, finally fallen from grace as Hero of Humanity? Could Halo 5: Guardians herald the end of a 14-year reign of the Xbox gaming icon, and see the Master Chief finally brought to his knees?
Bring the fight to the enemy at the head of Fireteam Osiris as agent Locke or delve deep behind enemy lines with Blue Team as the Master Chief. Will Agent Locke succeed on his mission, or will the Chief stand firm against the odds? Can you uncover the truth?
