Halo 5 is coming in October. Are you ready?


Halo 5: Guardians has been slapped with a release date of October 27.

Microsoft and 343 Industries also released a new trailer to mark the news; check it out below.

“The Master Chief. Spartan Locke. Who is the hunter and who is the hunted?” Microsoft said in a press release.

According to the platform holder, the new trailer sets up “up one of the most epic showdowns in entertainment history – pitting the legendary Master Chief against the UNSC’s top manhunter in Spartan Locke.”

“The first spot, titled All Hail, highlights Spartan Locke drawing down on the compromised Master Chief, questioning his legacy and motives,” Microsoft said.

“The second, The Cost, shows the Master Chief with the upper hand over an injured Spartan Locke, delivering a powerful manifesto about the true price of being a hero.

“Which version is true? Who is the hunter and who is the hunted?”

“We wanted Halo 5: Guardians to be the game that pays off the epic promise of the Halo universe in scope and scale and drama,” said 343 boss Bonnie Ross.

“We want to amaze players with the sheer size of the worlds and battles they’ll experience, even as they question everything they thought they knew about its heroes, marvels and mysteries. #HunttheTruth is only the beginning and we can’t wait to debut the game to Xbox fans around the world at E3 this June.”
