Keep in mind that the statue can be split and the two characters placed in a face-off. This further indicates that there might be another story waiting for us. In a Softpedia article, Eric Will and Jeff Christy, the user interface artists for Halo Waypoint declared that the various HUD elements will be used in order to make the Spartans special.
At the same time, they will come with a lot of built-in differences between Spartan IV and other older generation variants. In the community update page for Halo Waypoint, Eric Will admitted to being ‘probably biased’ and declared that the story in Halo 5 Guardians is quite dynamic and ambitious and according to him, the best story in the entire franchise.
The Spartan comrades are living, breathing people who possess a voice. He further added that there is a lot more that they wanted to do with the player being immersed into the Spartan fantasy and wearing the armor. This time, Halo 5 Guardians will have the presence of multiple Spartan comrades. There is John, Linda, Kelly and Fred, who are previous members of the Blue Team. They are originally Spartan II soldiers and they accompany John for the first time in Guardians.
In other news, new gameplay footage from Halo 5: Warzone discovered from YouTube depicts the use of a Plasma Pistol and it seems like this is quite the neat weapon that players should use.
Stay tuned for more updates on Halo 5: Guardians!
