First, Star Wars: The Force Awakens blew my mind. Then Star Wars Battlefront. Then Batman v Superman. And, a rumored after credits scene for Age of Ultron.

Today? A new trailer for Halo 5: Guardians.

Watch Agent Locke take on a Banshee some Elites and a few Jackals in the trailer below. Is that the Covenant homeworld, Sanghelios?

The GameStop trailer also teases a Spartan Locke armor set for those who preordered. Yeah, no one cares. We want some more info on what’s going in the trailer.

First, is that Sanghelios? It looks like it.


Second, where does Locke keep all his thrust fuel? Seriously, that’s some fast paced action shown off in the trailer.

I’m a Halo fan through and through. Any trailer gets me pumped. But, there are a couple of things I didn’t like. Whoever uploaded the video should be fired. Is it janky on anyone else’s computer or just mine?

When did Spartans turn into the Hulk? Spartans have always been stronger than regular people, but Locke just busted through a wall and tossed a Banshee around. Ahh, whatever. It looks awesome.

I know one thing, I’m ready to see more.

As for in-engine or CGI for the trailer? Battlefront’s in-engine trailer has everybody guessing what’s possible with graphics. I’m going with CGI for this trailer. Some of the dust effects in the trailer look a bit too good for in-engine.

Let me know what you think of the trailer? Do you think Halo goes that far with fast-paced action, or was it just for the trailer?
