The mysterious story that has been keeping the Halo fan base interested for so long, is being potentially spoiled by a line of toys, presumably putting profit over consumer interest. The line of toys includes Spartans, Elites, Warthog’s, Phaeton Gunship’s and more. The developers have confirmed that there is a Forerunner of mysterious origins that’s larger than the Didact and that the the much loved Spartan laser will be making a comeback, though it looks as though it has a new lick of paint. Perhaps this means there will be weapon skins?
Not only that, Locke’s Armour is of the “Gen2 Hunter” pattern, which further cements his assumed role of the hunter, and that post conflict, the humans and elites entered into an agreement of “select joint training engagements” between Thel’s Elites and the Spartan forces.
As for the artbook, which will surely be loaded with spoiler content, it’s either set to release this fall or the Amazon date is wrong. Halo 5 Guardians releases exclusively for the Xbox One later this year.
