Barely a month to go before the arrival of the much-awaited first-person shooter, "Halo 5: Guardians," a video game exclusive to the Xbox One. In the run up to its release, the game's developers have been sharing short video trailers that give some hints as to the game's storyline and what else is in store for the game's fans. According to a report in Tech Times, the latest trailer that was shared showed a very grim scenario.
Set in the year 2560, the trailer showed a city in ruins and people living in fear amidst "political quarrel, destruction and sorrow." One particular scene in the trailer featured how the game's hero and protagonist, Master Chief, gets buried under the city's rubble, which is further confirmed by the dimming of his visor. The death of Spartan 117 is later on announced to the rest of the city, with civilians and ex-soldiers listening on.
The trailer confirms an earlier pronouncement by the game's Executive Producer that "Halo 5" will be the last hurrah of the game's protagonist Master Chief. more >>
