Halo 5 cover art reveals more about the game

The Halo 5: Guardians cover art has been unveiled, revealing new information about the game.

Building the hype around the Xbox One-bound title, 343 Industries has revealed the game’s box art ahead of the October 27 Halo 5 release date.

For the covers of Halo 4 and Halo 3, it was Master Chief that enjoyed the spotlight on his own. But for Halo 5: Guardians it’s a different affair.

As you can see in the image above, and in the animated poster version below, there’s some sort of showdown between mysterious new Spartans.

In the mini trailer, we see Master Chief and Agent Locke facing off, but both of the chaps have a team of new Spartans behind them — four a piece.

If you look closely, you can see that at least one of the new Fireteam members is female.

According to the Xbox Wire post, these new Spartan Fireteams “play a crucial role in the showdown between Master Chief and Spartan Locke.”

“Who are these Spartans? This and many more mysteries will be uncovered as we draw closer to the world premiere of Halo 5: Guardians at E3 2015. Join us as we #HUNTtheTRUTH,” explained Microsoft.
