Where'd this come from?

Ooooh, looking forward to seeing this!

If Microsoft put in an FoV slider, and let you reduce the size of the gun so it didn't take up half the screen, I'd be all over this game. I haven't played an FPS on consoles (for more than 5 mins) since TimeSplitters on the PS2, no idea how people play like this, you have no peripheral vision, everything constantly sneaks up on you.

That drifting parallel park right at the start was pretty great, I've got to say.

Oh, nice!

Can't wait, man. Can't wait. This seems as frantic as the best of BTB.

This mode reminds me of Planetside. That being said, it looks interesting.

Edited by Player1

Doing hw while listening to this video instead of watching and by golly it sure does sound like a MOBA. Seems like a great idea, can't wait to get my hands on it.

Posted by ShadowSwordmaster

This looks really cool now I see this.

Posted by AMyggen

This video is making this mode looks a lot more fun that it did at the actual press conference.

Looks fun! I've always been more into the traditional arena-style halo multiplayer, but this looks like a really good time with buddies.

Hahaha, MOBA-Beetlejuice. Brilliant.

It's really cool that they're having both radically different playstyles in the same game, simply separated by game modes.

This looks great! Very cool way to innovate using ideas from a bunch of different past and present multiplayer games.

Never had any issue with FOV personally. And nothing sneaks up on you if you become very familiar with the radar. Halo has always had a really great radar system. Unless they're crouching I know where everyone around me pretty much at all times.

Then again, even when I do play FPS's on PC I never touch the FOV slider. Never felt the need to. Default is always fine for me. I understand that it's a real big issue from others though. Espcially for those who get motion sickness.

Halo 5 looks fantastic I cannot wait to play it. The beta was a ton of fun and this mode looks great.

Edited by Meizzner

that new vehicle The Phaeton looked really cool

Edited by Itwastuesday

We should have the option, it doesn't impact performance like people will tell you, it just stops motion sickness. When I look at this video all I notice is how it looks like you're looking through two toilet tubes, you're not getting full vision like a human.

Wait... so Dan would no longer like this (even though he just said he had enjoyed it), if he found out it was a MOBA? Really? I hope this was a joke ( I never know with Dan). If not this seems really juvenile.


I mean be your own person and like what you like, but to suddenly disregard something you are enjoying your time with simply because a genre title was associated with it. seems.

He threw away like ten bags of what he called the best mac and cheese ever because he found out it had sour cream in it.

Posted by johnnymcginley

The format for the videos have been great from E3, capturing footage of them playing then analysing it.

Actually makes me think they should sometimes do this normally for more complicated games...

Edited by Dasin

@teaoverlord: Right. Sorry, I`ll let it go and move on with my life. I should not try to deconstruct Dan. Thanks!

Load of shit. This isn't halo.

Edited by JJBSterling

This is really selling me.

Apparently a Halo 5 Xbox One is coming, which I'm surprised they didn't show during the conference, so I might end up picking that up just to play this.

It's obviously a joke, come on.

Reminds me of the onslaught gametype from Unreal Tournament 2004 with a couple of MOBA mechanics mixed in. I like onslaught, so I am down with warzone.

Posted by ChalkCharmer

Well played Drew! It was really nice to watch a skilled player commentate well with two other voices. Very cool. Looks like a game I will be enjoying online quite a bit.

Yes, it's actually Halo 5. There have been 4 others and 3 (more?) non-numbered games. You're welcome to play those if you don't want iteration.

Actually, it is! If you don't like this mode, you can play normal arena multiplayer with traditional 4v4 and weapon spawns on map.

Edited by Badfinger

This looks a lot like UT Onslaught with extra AI.

Which is to say perhaps the most interesting thing I've seen about Halo maybe ever.

Posted by bcc

This may be a chicken/egg thing, but the aesthetics of this map remind me a LOT of Planetside 2.

Posted by valeo

Echoing everyone else; reminded me heavily of UT Onslaught, except with slightly lamer vehicles.

Looks fun, though.

Posted by KgKris

This makes Destiny look even shittier than it already is.

Posted by Sunjammer

After playing so much splatoon it kind of drives me nuts to see this kind of stiff sticky aiming

Brad 'Moba Beetlejuice' Shoemaker.

Posted by AMyggen

MOBA Beetlejuice made me laugh.

Posted by KaneRobot

Looking forward to this. Seems really well done.

Posted by combustion_man

Phaeton looks like a mini Nebuchadnezzar

Posted by Jolt92

As a pretty big Halo-fan and Halo 5 skeptic this seems really good. I'm gonna get this, hopefully the multiplayer works.

Posted by Kairu_de_Large

If I get a Xbone I will play it, but it's not exactly high on my list of priorities currently. I still really do not like the look of the aim down sights, it just seems clunky and feels so out of place in a Halo game. Everything else was fine, it looked like a Halo game. I just hope the story is decent, because so far from the preview stuff it just isn't grabbing me. I just don't see a justification for the story continuing past Halo 3 tbh.

Posted by TheAcidSkull

Still the most anticipated game for me.

Posted by Robaota

Weirdly really looking forward to this, lapsed as a Halo fan since 3 - but this looks pretty great

Posted by Tsuchikage

The beta was great. This looks like that on a bigger scale, so I'm assuming this will be a lot of fun. It's not quite the really epic Halo multiplayer I was anticipating, though.

Posted by rmanthorp

E3 Unfinished from the show floor? I had no idea. That's RAD!

Looks like Dan is still hell bent on refusing to give mobas a fair chance. I get that they're not for everyone, but the way he makes zero attempt to understand what's enjoyable about them and then proceeds to act like they're the worst thing ever is really obnoxious.

This mode looks cool. If I had an Xbox One, I'd seriously consider buying the game just for this mode.
