The new trailer for Halo 5: Guardians dips into a pre-order bonus you can get from gamestop. By pre-ordering you will get the exclusive Spartan Locke Armor Set that is shown in the video. Aside from being a pretty sweet looking armor, the more exciting thing is probably that we get new footage and get to see potential in-game footage and get a better idea of how the final will look like.
If this trailer is any indication, the game is headed in a good direction without a doubt. But like gameondaily.com states, and i agree, there are probably some in-game assets in here, but effects like dust, explosions,… seem clearly pre-rendered. While we shouldn’t be too far away from cut-scenes that are truly rendered in-game and look like this, it still stands out in trailers like this.
But looking back at the graphical fidelity of Halo 4 on the last gen, the next evolution of Halo should get pretty close to these scenes.
