Halo 5 Opening Cinematic Online

Reading Time: 1 minute

Microsoft released the opening cinematic for the highly-anticipated Halo 5: Guardians this morning. It’s a 3 minute, 36 second thrill ride that lays out the basic story for the game–a team of Spartans needs to penetrate behind enemy lines and rescue a scientist from the Covenant–but more importantly shows off its incredible graphics. Also: Nathan Fillion.

Halo 5 will be available exclusively for the Xbox One, and is set to be released on October 27. The game is available for pre-order today, along with Limited Edition version that includes codes to upgrade your Spartan and a Metal Earth Guardian statue. For the truly hard-core fan, $250 will get you the Limited Collector’s Edition that includes a Master Chief statue. And finally, if you want to upgrade to the Xbox One so that you can play Halo 5, there’s a Console Bundle that includes everything from the Limited Edition, along with a 1TB custom Xbox One console.

More details about the game can be found on the official site.
