Surprisingly, Master Chief is nowhere to be seen in Halo 5: Guardian’s opening cinematic.
Microsoft has released the first 3 minutes of Halo 5, and it centers around co-protagonist Jameson Locke rather than the Spartan that fans have come to know over the course of the first four games. Both Chief and Locke will be playable in Halo 5, but this new cinematic trailer shows off Locke and his squad as they descend upon the battlefield.
Halo 5: Guardians is coming to Xbox One on October 27th, and will launch alongside a custom console based on the game. For more on the latest installment in the shooter series, check out our preview of the Halo 5’s Warzone multiplayer mode.
