Given that earlier this week we had the launch trailer for Halo 5: Guardians get released to the world and review copies of the game making their way out there it was only a matter of time before we had some real gameplay to see. In fact, and I am hoping that 343 Industries does take them all down, I have a feeling that we are going to get all kinds of Halo 5 videos here in the coming week to help sell the game. Not that the Xbox One needs any help selling Halo to the fans but I am sure that Microsoft will take whatever is offered up. It would be stupid not to as they lead into October 27th when Halo 5: Guardians officially launches.
All of that aside though, as I mentioned it looks like some gameplay has been placed online and it covers about the first half hour of Halo 5's campaign mode. It also looks like the launch trailer was made up of pretty much the opening cinematic scene as that does seem to dominate the footage that was in there. Of course this is a good thing as it would have been really dumb to show more of Halo 5 than that in the launch trailer and not keep the rest of the campaign a huge secret until all of the fans were able to get there on their own. Just as a good story based game should be and if you take away the multiplayer that is what Halo 5: Guardians is at the end of the day.
I won't go into too much more detail on the following footage for Halo 5. Partially so those who don't want a second of it ruined won't have anything spoiled and partially because there is so much going on that if you do choose to watch it will be better shown off in the gameplay and not my words. No matter the case it does look like 343 Industries has put a lot of love and care into Halo 5's gameplay and world so all of those Halo shouldn't be let down. Unless the practice is a lot different than the preach here. It can't be…can it? Hopefully not…
Halo 5: Guardians — First 30 Minutes
Did you watch the footage for Halo 5: Guardians here or is it being skipped by you so you can experience it first hand? Does it look like 343 Industries has made their magnum opus with Halo 5 or will there be a lot of room to expand and perfect later on? Are you still watching the above video and letting me talk about this for no reason right now? Go ahead and answer all of that down in the comments and discuss until Halo 5: Guardians is released. If there are any further updates or tidbits of news out of Microsoft on this we will have all those updates here for you so be sure to keep checking back in for more on Halo 5.
