Halo 5

WATCH: The Halo 5: Guardians Opening Cinematic Trailer is a Thing of Beauty

If you’re still holding out on purchasing an Xbox One, this Halo 5: Guardians trailer may be the nudge you need to run out and get one.

This opening cinematic is definitely focused on making everything look as epic as possible and while you can’t help but feel a little disappointed to realize that any actual gameplay won’t hold a candle to Fireteam Osiris’ stylized orbit drop and mountain shoot-out, this is one video that is sure to have Halo fans chomping at the bit to get their hands on the game. Even more incredibly, series protagonist Master Chief is nowhere in sight, which indicates how confident developer 343 Industries is in their decision to divide the story between the iconic Spartan and Osiris.

Halo 5: Guardians drops October 27th exclusively on the Xbox One and it’s looking like it will do the series proud. That being said, we’re still upset about the split-screen debacle
