De­vel­oper: 343 In­dus­tries Pub­lisher: Mi­crosoft Stu­dios Out: Q4

Although the some­what botched launch of The Master Chief Col­lec­tion back in Novem­ber won’t have done 343 In­dus­tries’ rep­u­ta­tion any favours among gamers, the de­vel­oper has the op­por­tu­nity to make up for things with Halo 5: Guardians this fall. Pick­ing up where Halo 4 left off as the mid­dle part in the new Re­claimer Tril­ogy, Guardians should prove to be a key part in the di­rec­tion of the se­ries’ fu­ture, and 343 has al­ready shown that it’s more than ca­pa­ble of build­ing upon the fine ground­work laid down by Bungie on the game’s orig­i­nal tril­ogy. Play­ers who picked up The Master Chief Col­lec­tion will likely al­ready have had their first taste of Guardians’ game­play thanks to a meaty beta served up by 343, where they’ll have noted some ma­jor changes to the game’s me­chan­ics, in­clud­ing the re­moval of Ar­mor Abil­i­ties and their re­place­ment with Spar­tan Abil­i­ties, while eight maps have al­ready been con­firmed, with many more to follow in the near fu­ture.
