Yesterday was a bonanza if you were looking for some answers about Halo 5.
Josh Holmes, 343’s studio head for Halo 5 Guardians, took to twitter and answered several fan questions about Halo 5 Guardians. Below are those questions and answers:
I can’t wait to find out more about this. I for one am glad both are back in. The progression/unlock system to me seems to be something similar to both Reach/Halo 4. Once you attain a certain level you’ll unlock armor variants. At least I’m hoping so. I liked the way it was in Reach where you could pick which armor you wanted to unlock if you had enough credits.
One thing I hope happens is that unlocking armor happens SLOWER than Halo 4, but faster than Reach. I unlocked everything in Halo 4 in, IIRC, 40 days. In Reach it took me 9 months.
This is another thing I want to see and I know many others do too. What might the statue be? Chief? Locke? Both? The ‘Guardian’ construct from the E3 2013 trailer? I think once that is revealed, we’ll see a jump in orders for the limited edition.
Now if you wonder what that is, my friends over at Halo Archive think they have the answer and I am agreeing with their surmise.
Pictured at left is the hologram seen on the Halo 3 map Epitaph. On the right is a ‘guardian’ or possibly a guardian sentinel. Looking at those two images and the one above, you can see a CLEAR association. Well, I can anyway…
And to follow that up, Josh even lets loose that there will indeed be a limited edition console. Man, I hope I have enough money saved for that, to replace the one I have that got fried by electricity back in February!All in all, some great questions and even better answers!
