The Halo 5: Guardians launch is right around the corner, and 343 Industries recently unveiled the opening cinematic to the game, featuring Fireteam Osiris. In the cinematic, the group receives UNSC orders to recover a high value target and deploy to take on Covenant and Promethean forces in a fierce action sequence – the start to possibly the most ambitious, robust and epic Halo campaign experience yet.
The elite team comprised of:
Spartan Jameson Locke – Before he was a Spartan, Locke was an ONI Acquisitions Specialist – an
expert in tracking, asset recovery, and elimination of high value targets
Spartan Olympia Vale – A child prodigy, Vale’s innate skill in languages led to a career as a
Navy liaison with the Sangheili post-war
Spartan Holly Tanaka – After surviving the glassing of her homeworld, Tanaka joined the Army,
looking for a chance to save others from the same fate
Spartan Edward Buck – During his service as an ODST, Buck’s personnel profile suggested “if he
were any better he’d be a Spartan”
The cinematic was directed by 343 Industries and created in collaboration with some of the video game industry’s leading creative talent, such as AXIS Animation, Profile Studios and Warner
Halo 5: Guardians is available on 27 Oct, check the opening below.
