Damn Arbiter, you’ve been lifting bro.
It was bound to happen, it would seem as though this is the natural order of things in gaming nowadays, but I can honestly say that at this point I’m beyond caring. So fair warning, here there be monsters and Halo 5 Guardians leaked footage.
I’m going to say that I called it when it came to Locke’s job being the Spartan hunter, going after the Spartan. Naturally this introduces an interesting dynamic into the game, we have Agent Locke and his team of Spartans, trying to accomplish their mission. There’s the shipmaster (whether or not he’s important isn’t known) who distrusts Locke.
There’s The Arbiter who (despite rocking a new suit of badass armour) still clearly is aware of (and probably has a deep respect for) the Chief. That of course leaves good old John 117. 343 Industries have been rather quiet about the Master Chief’s role in the game, much to the dismay of gamers.
The footage is grainy and does indeed have some major audio issues, but I’ll be damned before I say that this game doesn’t look pretty when you’re viewing cut-scenes.
