Halo is Microsoft’s flagship franchise, and in anticipation for Halo 5: Guardian’s release on October 27, Microsoft has released the three-minute opening cinematic for the game. In the clip, the Spartan Locke along with the rest of Fireteam Oasis set out on a rescue mission to recover a high-valued target. The beginning of the clip starts out with a debriefing of the mission, and then suddenly bursts into a minute and a half of non-stop action. Graphically stunning, the cinematic showcases the sheer prowess of the Xbox One with Fireteam Oasis combating Covenant and Promethean forces in epic style.

While you wait for Halo 5: Guardians to be released, check out the cinematic for yourself.
