Halo 5 Guardians Xbox ONE

The first person shooter, alien / human warfare video game Halo 5 Guardians releasing to Xbox ONE exclusively on October 27, 2015 which was originally debuted by the cryptic theme of war logs through viral campaign has been known as one of the console’s main selling points (60 frames per second has also been confirmed) even before the Beta testing occurred showcasing the game’s new multiplayer format changing up the formula of gunplay in the online battlefield between players. 343 Industries has been developing this game for potentially upwards of two years as the earliest conceptual work on the game began while Halo 4 was being produced.

Microsoft’s augmented reality headset HoloLens has been rumored as a consideration for technological breakthroughs in observing the game of Halo, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet how far this ends up going and if the feature makes the final cut before release. Early adopters will want to keep an eye on it though, Minecraft HoloLens was displayed recently from Microsoft at E3 2015 as well during a live presentation. Check out Mega Ran’s E3 2015 Wrap Up!

Halo 5: Guardians Earns a T Rating


The fifth numbered entry in the Halo franchise has been rated “T for Teen” by the ESRB, Gamesradar discovered today. All previous Halo titles — with the exception of Halo Wars, Spartan Assault and Spartan Strike, have been rated “M for Mature”.

The content descriptors reveal the game will feature blood, mild language, violence. It appears the violence in Halo 5 has been toned compared to its predecessors; its official rating summary mentions occasional blood-splatter effects, while Halo 4‘s lists “Large blood-splatter effects” and describes a gory scene. You can read the full rating summary for more detail.

Halo 5 Rating Summary:

This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of a super soldier (Locke) searching for a missing character. Players use pistols, machine guns, grenade launchers, and futuristic weapons to kill alien and human enemies in frenetic combat. Battles are highlighted by realistic gunfire, explosions, and occasional blood-splatter effects. Characters can also use “assassinations” to kill characters by snapping their necks, or by stabbing them with bladed weapons. The word “a*s” appears in the dialogue, as well as occasional taunts/insults (e.g., “I have copulated…with your genetic progenitors!”; ‘Your father was a filthy colo and your mother was a hole in the wall!’)

Halo 5: Guardians launches on October 27, 2015, exclusively for Xbox One.

Halo 5: Guardians – Multiplayer Beta Impressions


Art By VGWallpapers
Halo 5 Guardians is the next installment of the highly successful FPS series and marquee Xbox Franchise will be making its way to the Xbox One later this year. 343 Industries recently gave Halo Fans who purchased “Halo The Master Chief Collection”  a chance to participate in the multiplayer beta for the game to give players a feel for the game mechanics and control scheme. Halo 5 Guardians’ Multiplayer Beta takes what players loved from the games previous entries and meshes it with things gamers expect from the modern FPS Shooters as well as stream lined a lot of the game mechanics they introduced Halo 4. Players can now jump, hover, boost, ground pound and shoot seamlessly with skipping the beat. The pace of the game is dramatically increased and the maps are refined for fast pace yet tactical gameplay. The weapons and gun play in the game are highly updated and no one weapon can decimate your opponent unlike in previous entries making aiming and shot placement even more critical than before especially in the 4V4 multiplayer modes. The targeting and scopes have been greatly improved allowing players to point and shoot with out a huge recital in the middle of the screen. The Assault Rifle, DRM, and Pistol make their return as well as some of the Covenant and Promethean weapons for the previous game. The player assassinations and take-down’s are back as well as kill reversals for those critical moments right before a player’s death. 343 has also brought player customization back allowing you fully customize your Spartan’s looks, color palate as well as your Clan Tag but the load out option has been locked for the Beta. 343 has allowed players to change their button layout so if you don’t like the new default you can change it however you like to player the game. Halo 5: Guardians looks like it will uphold the legacy of the series iconic mulitplayer mode and maybe even take it a step further. The beta does has some visually hiccups and it does take a while to join in a match at times but when you join a game you stay inside the current match. Halo 5 Guardians looks like it is on the right path and now its up to 343 Industries to follow through and finish their work on the game the data that the gain in this session as well as feedback from the community then couple that with the massive single player the company has promised us Halo 5 might just be the FPS of the year for 2015. Check out our video impressions of the Multiplayer Beta below and keep it locked to RGN for all your Halo news.

Halo 5: Guardians Announced for 2015


Earlier today 343 Industries revealed that Halo 5: Guardians will be available exclusively on the Xbox One in the fall of 2015.

The announcement was made by 343’s general manager Bonnie Ross in a blog stating the future of the Halo franchise. “Halo” games have pushed the Xbox forward, showcasing the console and its ecosystem in entertaining and innovative ways. 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.”

Ross explains that Guardians is a “bigger effort” than part 4 and that “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.”


Ross also went on to hint at 343 industries plans for next month’s E3. “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.”

Sounds exciting. Stay tuned to RGN for all things Halo as we get closer and closer to E3.
