Remember how Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition added terminals throughout the game, which revealed new story details from the point of view of 343 Guilty Spark and provided a connection to the then-unreleased Halo 4? Well, in an interview with Eurogamer, 343 Industries’ Bonnie Ross said the remastered version of Halo 2 will contain similar terminals that build up to the story of Halo 5: Guardians. These terminals, however, will come from the point of view of Thel ‘Vadam (the Arbiter).
That’s not the only thing that will fill the gap to Halo 5, either. Nightfall, Ridley Scott’s live action series, will feature the new Spartan character, Agent Locke. It will tell Locke’s backstory, so you get to know and understand him. She hinted that the Halo TV series produced by Steven Spielberg (separate from Scott’s series) will be connected to Halo 5, as well, but we aren’t sure how.
Even with the emphasis on Locke, the Master Chief is still the main character, and Halo 5 is still his story. It’s starting to sound as though the Arbiter will have a big role, though, and we can’t wait to see what form that will take.
If all that isn’t enough content to pave the way to the next game, the Master Chief Collection will also have a new prologue and epilogue that will “tie you up and leave you on the doorstep of Halo 5.” What do you think these new scenes will be like?
