Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer details revealed

Developer 343, has begun to show details of Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer, by revealing abilities the Spartans will have.

Release Date: 11/11/2014

Halo 5: Guardians only on Xbox One.

Halo developer 343 Industries has shown off Halo 5's multiplayer in detail for the first time, revealing a bunch of new abilities for Spartans that will shake up the series.

All players will now have access to thrusters which can be used to boost jumps, change direction rapidly or even hover in the air. You'll also be able to deliver a “ground pound” attack from the air. Spartans can now grab ledges and climb up, as well as sprinting and sliding into cover. The game will also introduce Smart Scopes, something that has been part of Halo lore – Master Chief's pistol supposedly feeds information directly to his HUD – but has never been realised in-game.

“The goal from the beginning has been to offer an even playing field where all players have a consistent set of abilities,” executive producer Josh Holmes told VG247. “I think in Halo 4, with the armour ability system, with loadouts, you never knew what you were facing on the battlefield. That added a degree of randomness into the play experience, and I think to have a great competitive experience you need to have predictability and consistency. So that’s been a goal for us.”

Not all the features have been designed to empower you though. For example, while sprinting your shields won't recharge. “Part of the objective there was making sure players couldn’t simply disengage from battle and negate all the action that had taken place and avoid conflict resolution,” according to creative director Tim Longo. “So by linking sprint with shields it creates that compelling decision on the battlefield.”

Halo 5: Guardians is out in 2015. If you want to be among the first to play the multiplayer beta, you need to pick up The Master Chief Collection for Xbox One, out now.
