You Must Watch the Halo 5: Guardians Opening Cinematic for Xbox One

Halo 5: Guardians Opening Cinematic

Microsoft has release the stunning Halo 5: Guardians opening cinematic trailer for Xbox One that shows Spartans fighting like you’ve only read about up until this point.

In the trailer, Fireteam Osiris receives orders to retrieve a high value target whose name many of you will already be familiar with. The quartet arms up and then jumps from a ship, through Covenant ships, and right into the middle of a massive battle on a snowy mountain.

This is the first time we’ve seen Spartans truly use their brute strength and speed in the Halo video game series. 343 Industries is tapping into the Halo books more so than any previous game in the franchise and if you weren’t excited for the new Halo 5: Guardians campaign yet, this trailer should change your mind.

Here’s a breakdown of who comprises Fireteam Osiris, followed by the amazing trailer.
