Halo 5 Goes Gold, Gets "Gameplay" Trailer

Posted By: The GamerDating Team - October 12, 2015

Halo 5: Guardians went gold last week so 343 Industries and Microsoft celebrated by releasing a trailer today. It is nearly 3 minutes and listed as a “gameplay trailer” but mostly includes in-game cut scenes - notably a confrontation between Master Chief and Spartan Locke. No spoilers in the trailer - but watch out, Eurogamer is reporting that they are out there already.

Oddly, the most talked about part of the trailer in the few hours it has been out is their song choice. Action sequences are scored not by an orchestra, but by Muse’s “Knights of Cydonia.” It seems a fitting choice with the lyrics but a definite departure from what Halo fans are used to. Chat with us on Twitter @GamerDating and tell us your thoughts.

Halo 5: Guardians will release on October 27th, of course, only for Xbox One.
