As we’ve seen before in Halo’s expanded fiction, The Blue Team will be a huge part of Halo 5’s campaign, allowing squad commander chiefs to issue orders in combat and a four-player cooperative play. Chief, Linda, Fred, And Kelly, will have their own unique loadouts suited to their combat abilities, and will appear in the cutscenes as well.
Halo: Nightfall character Jameson Locke and his own team, Osiris, have been given the task of finding Master Chief and Blue Team after they’ve been declared AWOL by the military. Both stories will be present throughout Halo 5: Guardians’ campaign, with Osiris having slightly more advanced tech then Chief and his spartan allies. Additionally, a new underwater multiplayer map called Fathom has been announced.
Halo 5: Guardians will release on October 27 for Xbox One. Expect to learn more next week during E3 2015.
