Halo 5 Guardians E3 2014 trailer screenshot breakdown.


Okay, I’ve had a little time to get some screenshots from the trailer to break it down a little for you good folks.

The sequence opens with this shot of an arena in space.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.46.26 PM
The lights come on.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.46.30 PM
The scoring screens light up. Will that happen in the game???Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.46.36 PM
Below we see one of the Red’s gloves. Does that look armored to you? Partially. Seems more like a leather glove though.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.46.50 PM
So below we see one of the Blue’s reloading his weapon.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.47.11 PM
Not the emblem on his chest as seen below highlighted by a red circle. I wonder if this is an emblem you can pick?

The AR is back. You can tell by the ammo count on it. Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.47.32 PM

Note below that the same emblem seen on the chest is also on the helmet.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.47.38 PM
You can see it in the red circle on the right. Also note the number ‘8’ on his helmet.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.47.38 PM v2
An emblem on the Red’s helmet.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.48.00 PM
And a number ‘5’ as well. Recurring theme here.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.48.00 PM v2

Now at this point, I’m thinking this is just a base set of armor, much like the Warrior armor of Halo 4’s promotional trailers. This armor looks a lot like the Recruit armor of Halo 4.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.48.06 PM
Reds going to match up against Blues.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.48.15 PM
Again note the number ‘2’. Now on the shoulder. So are these uniform throughout? Will every Red team be 1-4 and Blue team 5-8? Or are those also emblems that we can choose? Curious.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.48.15 PM v2

The next few pics show the Reds being thrust into the arena via lifts.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.48.21 PMScreen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.48.26 PMScreen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.48.30 PMScreen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.48.37 PMWill that be how we enter each map? Or is this just special for the trailer???

Now let’s looks at the “new” abilities shown in the trailer.

Below that looks very much like Thrust. You can tell by the blue jet streams coming from the Red’s back. That’s not new. Hmm?Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.48.55 PM

Now below a Spartan was running the did a Power Slide to come to a top. So is this Sprint or a Power Slide? If it is a power slide, it doesn’t seem much like an ability. Then again, is will give you a moment of cover if you do it right, as seen above.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.49.11 PM

The next five are a sequence of what I’m dubbing a ‘Power Slam’. Yes, those blue jets are still there, but the action used by the Red is much different. It’s not lateral but vertical.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.49.31 PMScreen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.49.34 PMScreen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.49.37 PM

Love those particle effects above. Also note how the surrounding Blues go flying from the slam.Screen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.49.41 PMScreen Shot 2014-06-09 at 7.49.43 PMGreat stuff. I can’t wait to see these talked about more by 343. I’d like a clearer definition of what these abilities are and what their names are.

What is your take on them? Let me know by replying below.

  1. Also note for the “Power Slide”, after the slides occurs, the Blue Spartan actually stops (Still crouched) for a brief moment, looking at a Red Spartan in the open.
    Cover System in Halo 5?

  2. Looks like 343 is focusing more on the Spartans and their “War Games” especially with the numbers (like the numbers for a sport team-343 probably want Halo to be very competitive again) . The slide and the ground slam reminds me of Crysis though (another great sci-fi game): go to 0:55 and 2:49
