Microsoft released a new video recently for the opening cinematic of upcoming Halo 5: Guardians. The cinematic begins with a mission briefing for Spartan Locke and his team on the recovery of Dr. Halsey who is being held being enemy lines. It then jumps right into action (literally) and features the team of Spartans from the UNSC Infinity tearing through Covenant and Forerunner troops as battleships crash and explode behind them.
The epic battle sequence is missing a key figure though. Spartan 117, Master Chief, is no where to be found in this trailer. Disappointing to fans that wish to know more about where the Master Chief is in the beginning of Halo 5: Guardians. We already knew that Spartan Locke would be one of the main focuses of the upcoming Halo sequel and this opening cinematic seems to solidify that notion. We’re still interested in how the story will unfold, but can’t help but wonder where the Master Chief is.
