Halo 5 - Spartan Locke

Halo 5: Guardians doesn’t release for another 4 months, but that’s not stopping Microsoft and GameStop from getting the hype train rolling.

GameStop has released a new trailer for the title via their YouTube channel. The new video is mainly poised to show off the Spartan Locke Armor Set, which is available to those who preorder the next Halo title through GameStop. But it also does a great job of showing off how badass Spartan Locke will be in Halo 5: Guardians.

The trailer is about a minute of UNSC’s Spartan Locke kicking ass and taking names. Jumping out of ships, jumping onto vehicles, destroying said vehicles. Taking down enemy after enemy as he continues his hunt of the elusive Master Chief.

Halo 5: Guardians hits the Xbox One on October 27th. It is Microsoft’s 9th installment within their revered Halo series. The title’s official synopsis goes as follows:

Peace is shattered when colony worlds are unexpectedly attacked. And when humanity’s greatest hero goes missing, Spartan Locke is tasked with hunting the Master Chief and solving a mystery that threatens the entire galaxy.

We’ll have much more on the Halo 5: Guardians in just over a month as it’s sure to be a highlight of Microsoft’s E3 conference in June. Checkout the clip for yourself below.
