With the launch of Halo 5 Guardians getting closer by the day, now seems like a decent time to show off the opening cinematic for the game. So that’s exactly what has happened!

Featuring Fireteam Osiris, the elite team comprises of:

  • Spartan Jameson Locke – Before he was a Spartan, Locke was an ONI Acquisitions Specialist – an expert in tracking, asset recovery, and elimination of high value targets
  • Spartan Olympia Vale – A child prodigy, Vale’s innate skill in languages led to a career as a Navy liaison with the Sangheili post-war
  • Spartan Holly Tanaka – After surviving the glassing of her homeworld, Tanaka joined the Army, looking for a chance to save others from the same fate
  • Spartan Edward Buck – During his service as an ODST, Buck’s personnel profile suggested “if he were any better he’d be a Spartan”

Watch below as the team receives UNSC orders to recover a high value target and deploy to take on Covenant and Promethean forces in a fierce action sequence – the start to the most ambitious, robust and epic Halo campaign experience yet.
