Xbox E3 starts off its show with a bang as Bonnie Ross from 343 Industries takes the stage to welcome all the fans and talk about what Xbox is going to do for 2015. Build from the ground up Halo 5: Guardians is going to be the first Halo adventure first on Xbox One.

A trailer starts as we hear Spartan Locke and Buck, from ODST, talking about their hunt for Master Chief. We get to see Locke traveling to the covenant home world to search for him. We get to see game play from the Spartan fire team and Agent Locke's ability to track down Master Chief. They arrive just in time to see Chief escape and the tower to crumble forcing them to run for their lives through an ever changing environment. Adding to the mix Prometheans enter the battle as the spartan group move forward. We get to see a new crossbow weapon that seems to be of covenant origin. A special new promethian arrives and ends the gameplay trailer. We are then treated to a slew of different scenes that look to be not only across planets but also focus on all of the different main alien races and factions.

Halo 5 will have drop in and drop out co-op as you play as either Chiefs Blue Team or Locke's Fireteam Osiris. This gameplay will also carry over to the multiplayer with maps as large as 4 times that or previous halo maps. In these warzone multiplayer matches not only will you be facing another team but also the environment as you have to fight aliens in the monumental battlefields.

What do you think of this new adventure for the Chief? Are you excited for Warzones?
