Halo 5 Blowout Extravaganza


-20+ maps at release, 15+ free DLC maps added by June of next year

-Squad Commands will be in for AI teammates, apparently similar to Republic Commando (343i Creative Director Timothy Longo was the Lead Designer on Republic Commando back when he worked at Lucas Arts). Commands include attack, picking up a specific weapon, driving a vehicle, using a turret, and reviving a downed teammate.

-No splitscreen co-op, but drop-in/drop-out online co-op is available, allowing additional players to play as AI squad mates. Each chaarcter will have a different starting loadout and unique HUD. The old co-op respawn mechanic has been replaced, you now have to revive downed teammates. A gold subscription isn't required for online co-op.

-All multiplayer Spartan Abilities are also available in singleplayer. Ground pound has been moved from a right stick click to holding down the right bumper.

-Locke's Team is called Fireteam Osiris. Members are Edward Buck (introduced in Halo 3: ODST), Holly Tanaka (introduced in Halo Escalation), and Vale Olympia (new character that will be introduced in an upcoming book named "Hunters in the Dark").

-Singleplayer map design is less linear, there are alternative paths through levels, including some that are more stealthy, such as sneaking through a vent in order to flank a group of enemies.

-A brand new Multiplayer Game Mode is in development, no details yet, other than that it uses all aspects of the Halo 5 sandbox (Big Team Battle replacement?)

-Locke's team has access to a new system caled ATS (Artemis Tracking System) which can be used to search for clues, useful for hunting Blue Team. This system will also make finding alternative routes through levels easier than it is for Blue Team to find them.

-Joe Staten has no official role on the Halo dev team, he's working on other MS Studios games, though he is writing a new Halo book that will be released in December.

-The audio team is not reusing any sounds from Halo 4, they're re-recording everything in order to better take advantage of next-gen technology.

-Beta feedback has reen used to redesign certain aspects of the multiplayer, for instance the map Empire has seen some changes, such as certain entry points into the bases being closed off.

-New symmetrical multiplayer map that features an underwater research facility. Heavy red/blue coloring for easy navigation and callouts.

-Cortana's "ghost" will appear some in Halo 5. Apparently caused by Chief's memories of Cortana.">"><img src="

Around the Network

We're open? Excellent work Slade!

Will try and find the E3 bingo card at some point but one "off the wall" prediction will be the announcement of a new game, either a sequel to, a remake of or a spiritual successor for, Lost Odyssey.

We can dream.


Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Woo hoo! Excellent job as usual Slade!

Welcome to the hype club Microsoft fans.

Please enjoy your stay. ^_^

Banjo Threeie



Microsoft announce the acquisition of Remedy (I have a hunch)
