Halo 5: Guardians drops October 27, 2015. Just over two months from now, we’ll get our gritty mjolnir mitts on it. In the meantime, the ‘net is full of videos and information, for those not concerned with spoilers. Check out several videos below, Wargames followed by a Campaign sneak peek, shared by Vincent Torre over at Casually Competitive Customs on FaceBook, a closed group primarily consisting of talented Halo Forgers.

I’m really digging the parkour elements of Halo 5, and appreciate the return of ledges and other tricky playspaces that will allow us to creatively navigate the new maps, by hiding, sneaking past battles to reach an objective, and flanking the enemy.

In the fourth video below, see our first view of the War Games map, Colosseum, featuring gameplay by pro teams Epsilon ESports vs Optic Gaming.
