We’re nearing the end now, folks. Halo 5: Guardians is close to being in the hands of gamers, and the wait continues to be torture. 343 and Microsoft have added to that feeling by showing off the game’s opening cinematic, and it’s freaking awesome.
If you’ve ever wanted to see Spartans go up against the full force of the Covenant and kick ass, this trailer is for you. You get a great sense of the camaraderie between the four members of Fireteam Osiris–Jameson Locke, Edward Buck, Olympia Vale, and Holly Tanaka. You get to see their armor abilities in action, vehicle hijacking, and plenty more. The music does a great job of getting you hyped, and that final shot seals the deal. You know that bit in Age of Ultron where the Avengers just spring into action? That’s pretty close, without a doubt.
Halo 5: Guardians unleashes the Spartans on the Xbox One on October 27.
