Microsoft has released a new cinematic, detailing the opening of the game's second mission centering around the Blue Team, led by their legendary commander Master Chief. As the team is sent to board a research facility held by the Office of Naval Intelligence, they're tasked with preventing the contents of the facility from falling into the vile claws of a renegade Covenant faction. In the opening cinematic, following the stressed Master Chief causing concerns among his team, they embark onto the vessel through a field of asteroids, soon finding themselves in conflict with the Covenant forces that dwell within.
For anyone who already purchased Halo 5: Guardians they'll be able to start pre-loading the title onto their consoles. This is means for rejoicing, me thinks, as numerous Halo fans have been waiting for Halo 5: Guardians to drop -- and some have not been patient about it. The title doesn't come without taking up a chunk of data though as 46.2GB is the space it'll be using. That's just the beginning too since gamers can anticipate that it'll end up reaching 60GB which means space might need to be cleared off your console for it.
It's sad to say but for anyone who was looking to get a little bit of old school action from Halo 5: Guardians they might be disappointed. Unfortunately, Big Team Battles will be left out of Halo 5: Guardians from launch. Josh Holmes, executive producer of the title, announced on Twitter that the game would not have 8 on 8 play modes -- at least from the get go. However, Halo 5: Guardians will have Warzone which will include 12 on 12 AI battles, a size that the titles have not previously seen. While gamers might have been looking forward to a sense of familiarity from the new Halo installment at least there will be something to hold them over for the time being -- and that's aside from everything else Halo 5 has to offer.
Halo 5: Guardians will be having microtransactions introduced to the title, and 343 Industries touched based on how much it will actually cost in order to get premium cards. The way microtransactions will work are through REQ Packs -- which for those who are unfamiliar have REQ Cards in that grant either single-use or permanent items. All players will start with 54 REQ Cards and 7500 REQ Points. Said points can be used to purchase REQ Packs, that will be similar to boost packs essentially.
