The upcoming Halo game for the Xbox One has got some facts and rumors under it’s belt. I am going to discuss what is possible, what is fact, what is pure speculation, and what is wrong. Now let us get into it.
Halo on Xbox ONE’s Title: Some people, well most people, think this game is Halo 5. 343i and Microsoft have both stated that this title is not Halo 5. After some going back and forth within the press, I would have to believe them at their original comments and say it is a game that takes place Halo 4 but not before the Halo 5 story arc. I have found a rumor suggesting that the new Halo game will Reclaimer which fits the Reclaimer Saga ordeal.
Halo “Reclaimer” Story: We do not know really anything about the story but I have my educated theory’s. First off the game will either take place between Halo 4’s ending and sometime between Spartan Ops or after it. Or it could take place right after Halo 4 like a week or so which is doubtful but possible in my mind. Now what is Master Chief doing on whatever world or structure he is on? I think this part could either take place within the first 3 hours or in the middle of the game.
What the giant machine is could be three things, The Didact’s war sphinx which I think is unlikely due to leaked concept art of it looking smaller and different. It could be Medicant Bias a ancient forerunner AI who is in working in the background events of Halo 2 and 3, also he may be responsible for the events of Halo 4. Another option is the least likely of it not being in the game at all and possibly being just promotional or apart of the TV show.
The story will most likely involve heavily into Master Chief’s progression as a human being which we saw briefly touched upon in Halo 3 and more touched on in Halo 4. You could say this game is like the epilogue to Halo 4 and the intro to Halo 5 in a sorts. More like a continuation of the Halo Reclaimer Saga.
Halo Mutiplayer, 60 FPS, Dedicated Servers: Halo will finally be a crisp 60 FPS with online dedicated servers. This will be a big change for the Halo series. The fact they are considering making Halo multiplayer more cinematic and bigger. For example rumors of 32 vs 32 or more with something similar to Battlefields commander mode in BF4. Of course traditional game types will remain with the return of firefight and most likely and redefined and improved Spartan Ops mode. Possibly even a campaign for your multiplayer character similar to Halo Reach.
This is all I can talk about right now concerning Halo on Xbox One “5” “Reclaimer” But in our dedicated Halo sections we will keep you up to date, see you star-side.
