Today, at the start of the Microsoft press conference, Bonnie Ross kicked things off with Halo 5: Guardians. They started off by showing Locke’s side of the campaign. The player controlled Spartan Locke and Fireteam Osiris as they were hunting down the Master Chief. His Assault Rifle was found without ammo with the use of the Artemis scanner. A new weapon, called the Plasma Caster was shown; it’s similar to the Concussion Rifle. A new Promethean flying vehicle was also debuted. Also, the Covenant were indeed speaking English and said some humorous lines. It seems that Master Chief is being accepted by the prometheans, and the story will only get more interesting from there.
Josh Holmes showed of Warzone as well, the mysterious new multiplayer mode from the Game Informer unveil. It’s 24 players and A.I. fighting each other in a massive battle. It appears that Pelicans may even be controllable.
