Halo 5: Guardians – Making of Warzone Multiplayer ViDoc – E3 2015

Brand new Halo: Guardians ViDoc focused entirely on the development process behind the new multiplayer game mode called Warzone. Warzone is a 12 vs 12 experience that also features friendly and enemy A.I. combatants. It combines the best elements of Halo gameplay and incorporates the entire sandbox into one epic multiplayer experience. It’s epic Player vs Player vs Environment action!

Halo 5: Guardians at E3 2015

343 Industries kicked off the Xbox E3 Press Conference and revealed a cinematic trailer, a mission from Spartan Locke’s campaign, and the brand new multiplayer mode Warzone.

The BATTLE OF SUNAION mission demo shows Spartan Locke and the rest of Fireteam Osiris hunt down the Master Chief as the Arbiter fights off Covenant forces as this is their last stronghold. Locke’s team encounter new Promethean enemies: the Solider, and a Captain variant of the Soldier. They also encounter a brand new Forerunner air vehicle, the Phaeton – which is driveable in both campaign and multiplayer.

We witness a brand  new weapon called a Plasma Caster. The demo ends with a Forerunner like boss called the Warden Eternal.

Warzone is a brand new multiplayer mode where it’s 12 vs 12 and also features tons of AI enemies and marine allies.

Halo 5: Guardians Announced

Halo 5: Guardians

And with 23 days till E3 2014 we finally have a name. Halo 5: Guardians. Bonnie Ross, 343 Industries Studio Head has announced that the game formerly known as “Halo on Xbox One” is in fact Halo 5: Guardians. All of this at an ungodly hour in the morning… for North America at least.

Bonnie Ross wrote,

Making a “Halo” game that runs at 60 frames per second, on dedicated servers, with the scope, features and scale we’ve been dreaming of for more than a decade, is non-trivial.  It’s a task that we, at 343 Industries, are taking very seriously to ensure we deliver the “Halo” game that fans deserve, and a game that is built from the ground up for Xbox One.

Halo 5 Gaurdians is the next installment in the legendary saga of the Master Chief.  In the tradition of every “Halo” game since its debut in 2001, it is a massive and exciting project.

Halo 5: Guardians” is a bigger effort than “Halo 4.”  That applies to the content and scope of the game, as well as the technology in what’s now a brand new and more powerful engine.  Certainly there are some core elements carried over from prior games, but we’ve invested a huge effort in retooling our tech to take full advantage of the Xbox One’s hardware and ecosystem to create worlds and experiences worthy of next-gen.

It’s a game that will hopefully demonstrate the talent, learnings and abilities of the 343 Industries team. A game that will incorporate the things we learned from “Halo 4” about technology, aesthetics, performance and scale – and perhaps more importantly, understanding and embracing a community of gamers who love what lies at the heart of this game, and the limitless potential of the “Halo” universe.

And 2015 won’t simply be the year of “Halo 5: Guardians,” it will also be a year that offers us a unique opportunity. The opportunity to invite old friends and new audiences into that universe through the “Halo” television series, launched as a unique collaboration with Steven Spielberg and some of the finest creative minds in the business.  A series that will stand alone, as well as complement and enrich the game experience.  We’ll have more to share on the “Halo” television series as we near its projected fall 2015 release


To clarify, Halo 5 Guardians will be released in fall 2015 as well as Halo Television Series by Spielberg. Leaving people to question, is the highly rumored Halo 2 Anniversary still on the table for this year 2014? 2014 marks the 10 year Anniversary for Halo 2. And a popular NeoGaf leaker stated that Halo 5 would come out in 2015, another Halo Live Action series would exist aside from Spielberg’s series (Ridley’s Scotts project), and many non-Halo leaks have turned out to be true. Could we see a Halo 2 Anniversary with a Halo 5: Guardians Beta? Only time will tell…

Your Journey Begins in 2014

Many fans noted that I was very deliberate with my phrasing on stage at E3 last year. I spoke about a “journey,” rather than a destination – and that journey definitely begins in 2014 with a giant leap, rather than one small step. We’ll give you much more information about our plans for this year at the Xbox E3 2014 Media Briefing on June 9, and we’re confident that “Halo” fans will be pretty excited about the special plans we have in store.

So until E3, I’d like to express my gratitude to our massive and varied Halo community, whose energy, enthusiasm, criticism and kindness are the driving force behind what we do and what we hope to achieve in “Halo 5: Guardians.”

Halo on Xbox One News Coming at E3 2014

Halo Xbox OneA recent tweet from Microsoft’s Phil Spencer has revealed that 343 will unveil Halo news at this years E3 and apparently not during Microsoft’s Spring showcase.

Halo news will be coming at E3. 343i has a great plan in place, will be cool to share with everyone.

Jessica Shea, Senior Community Manager for 343 industries replied to the twitter thread with “Good things are coming,… Oh yes, they’re coming… !!

In 2012 we got some of our first looks of Halo 4 at the spring showcase prior to E3 2012 -and many people have expected the same events to occur for the upcoming Halo title for Xbox One but it appears this may not be the case.

Many people are speculating that we might see a Halo 2 Anniversary announcement at E3 since Halo 2 was released 10 years ago and 343/Microsoft personnel has seemingly been hinting at all things related to Halo 2. Others still think we’ll be getting an announcement for the continuation of Master Chief in Halo 5. Perhaps we’ll have both announcements, because in the end we don’t know what “Halo on Xbox One” really is.
