During the post show portion of Microsofts press conferences at Gamescom, Bonnie Ross, the Studio Head at 343 Industries revealed a few interesting points about Halo 5. However the interview didn’t reveal many facts that we didn’t already know, lets keep in mind that its her job to keep the hype train moving, but it did confirm some lingering suspicions about the Beta trailer that we saw at the conference.
The trailer which tells us about a 4v4 arena match was all running in engine, which is nice. Now, it’s worth noting that this doesn’t mean that the game will match the graphical fidelity of the pre rendered portions of the trailer. Not by a long shot. But the game is certainly boasting something powerful under its hood. And it looks lovely.
She also goes into full tease mode, mentioning that there’s “a lot going on with Halo 5”. This seems to be less of a tease about the game and more a blatant statement of fact, meaning she can’t say any more without giving away information. It’s up to you to make that call. I personally want to see Halo make the jump back to PC. Seriously, make that happen.
