343 Industries have revealed an early look into the story of Halo 5: Guardians via GameInformer.
Making up Master Chief’s companions through the story are the Blue Team in both single-player and four-player co-op. Blue Team is made up of Linda, Fred, and Kelly who were also abducted when they were six years old alongside John (Master Chief) to be turned into Spartan-II super soldiers. Each Spartan comes with their own loadouts and specialties.
As we know from previous footage, Master Chief has gone AWOL after losing Cortana in Halo 4. Linda, Fred and Kelly have also been declared AWOL by the UNSC and Spartan Locke and team are tasked with bringing them back.
Spartan Locke’s team has the slightly cooler sounding name of Fireteam Osiris which is made up of familiar and new Spartan-IVs. One of the familiar faces is Halo 3: ODST’s Gunnery Sergeant Edward Buck, who is played by Firefly actor Nathan Fillion.
Halo 5: Guardians is due for release on Xbox One on the 27th October 2015 and we expect to see more at E3 next week.
