Halo 5 Guardians: New Progression System, Warthogs, Limited Edition Controller and More

343 Industries has been more than willing to answer questions that you might have about Halo 5 Guardians recently. Which is why they have been doing just that in the last couple of days.

Josh Holmes the head of Halo 5 Guardians development at 343 Industries revealed a couple of hours ago that the game was going to get a themed Xbox One. If that was not enough news for the day, he has a lot more to share with you!

If you head over to the official Twitter profile of Holmes, you will see that he has been answering tons of questions that were thrown at him by the community.

I’ll just dig in and let you know of everything one by one. Firstly, the game is obviously not open world – unlike the rumors suggested. Moving on, since the game is getting a themed console, a limited edition controller should alsoo be in the line right? Well, it is.

Not that you wouldn’t have expected it, but E3 2015 is going to bring us the full fledged experience of the final product – that is also when you get new details about the Halo 5 Guardians multiplayer.

Moving to specific questions, he was asked “will ground pound crush a warthog into oblivion,” and his answer was that “not w/ a single hit. But if the warthog is sufficiently damaged it makes for a dramatic killing blow.”

More importantly, he discussed SR and progression system of the game:

Still have SR, plus CSR in Arena. Also a new progression/unlock system that we’ll be talking about in the coming months.

He was also asked to relate the movements and verticality depicted in the Locke trailer with the game’s campaign. In his reply Holmes said that “the Campaign and MP have both been designed around the Spartan Abilities,” so I hope we will be able to see all those moves in the campaign too.

Last but not the least, if you were expecting to get your hands on another Halo 5 Guardians Beta, you are out of luck – they don’t have it in the plans.
