Watch the Halo 5: Guardians opening cinematic


Enough military speak to sink a fleet

Halo 5: Guardians is on the horizon, and so 343 Industries has given us a peek of the game’s opening cinematic.

It’s got your usual Halo stuff: Covenant, people in absurdly big armour, and lots of holograms. The four-Spartan team who you’ll be able to play as are sent off on a mission to recover an important individual, while also making sure a lot of Covenant die.

It also features Edward Buck, played by Nathan Fillion, who is returning from his first appearance in Halo: ODST (the best Halo game, in my opinion).

Halo 5: Guardians launches on October 27 for Xbox One.
