We still have almost two whole months to wait until Halo 5 drops onto store shelves, but the people at Microsoft are stoking the already white-hot fires of anticipation by releasing the game‘s opening cinematic online. It’s just a few minutes long but it showcases the scope of the game as well as the characteristically strong visuals players will enjoy.
Unlike cinematics of yore, the one that will open Halo 5 boasts a full-on action sequence that aims to be as satisfying as one in a feature film, and it’s all just an appetizer for what Microsoft claims will be the “most ambitious, robust and epic Halo campaign experience.”
