Microsoft insists Master Chief still important to Halo 5 [potential spoilers if you haven't yet payed halo 4!!!]

Post  Fatboy Geezer on Tue Oct 07, 2014 7:31 am

Microsoft has responded to the recent debate about the main character of upcoming Xbox One first-person shooter Halo 5: Guardians.

Earlier today an interview with Mike Colter, who plays Agent Locke in the game, hit Reddit - via Imgur.

"Yeah, I'm a playable character in Halo 5," he said. "Once Halo: The Master Chief Collection is released, and then Halo 5 comes out shortly thereafter, you're basically going to be playing a game with me as the primary character.

"I'll have some cool weaponry, and some cool abilities, because by that time I'll be a Spartan IV."

Colter's comments sparked a discussion about Halo 5: will it revolve around fan favourite Master Chief, as previous Halo games have? Or will it be new character Agent Locke, set to star in upcoming live action series Halo Nightfall, who takes centre stage?

We don't know how much of the game you'll spend playing Locke compared to how much time you'll spend playing Master Chief, but responding to a request for comment from Eurogamer this evening, a Microsoft spokesperson insisted Master Chief plays an important role in the game and confirmed he is a playable character.

"As we've said before, Locke plays a primary role in Halo 5: Guardians," the Microsoft spokesperson said.

"The Master Chief remains an integral part of the game's story and as a playable character."

That doesn't give away much, so we return to the interview with Colter, who teased more about how Halo 5's story will play out.

"What's not known, is whether I'm a friend or foe," Colter said. "The relationship between Master Chief and Jameson Locke is going to be interesting. Because what's the outcome?

"Is he dead or alive? Because that's usually what a manhunt comes down to, dead or alive, but you won't know what the purpose of finding Master Chief is [right away].

"Or what will happen if we do find him, what condition he will be in, and where he's at mentally. But I'm sure that'll be a plot twist in Halo 5."

Here's my speculation: POSSIBLE HALO 4 SPOILERS AHEAD.

Following the events of Halo 4, which saw Master Chief changed in some way, the disenfranchised super soldier goes AWOL. Agent Locke is sent to find - and secure - the UNSC's prized asset. You play Locke while on that search.

After you track Master Chief down - probably on some mysterious Forerunner world - some secret is revealed and you switch to play as Master Chief, who joins forces with Agent Locke in a bid to finish the fight. Again.

Nice find mate. Really don't won't to be playing as anyone else except the Master Chief. Master Chief is Halo, can't have Halo without Chief in my opinion. Still looking forward to the Master Chief collection and Halo 5.

I enjoyed both Reach and ODST, I think a different perspective on the Halo universe would be ok but the core of the franchise will always be with Master Chief

Much as I love Master Chief but I think they got it right if they want to expand the Halo universe. How many Halo games can they make with just Master chief in it.

Possible spoiler from Halo 4

I reckon he's has gone rogue because he still looking for that old female doctor who made Master Chief and Cortana, since UNSC let her down. Sorry cant remember her name right now. Master Chief basically said screw you guys I am going rogue so I can find her. Can't wait to see how the story planned out.

Same for me mate, couldn't agree more. Although I did enjoy playing as noble 6 in reach.

!Potential spoilers!

Stee01, not sure he has gone 'rogue' as such but he was genetically changed by his fight with the Didactic at the end of 4, plus I think he is going to find Cortana

Spoiler Alert for Halo 4.

That is true Fatboy Geezer, the Diadact has changed him in a way. But the only way he is going to find Cortana is to find Dr Halsey. Because she made Cortana like she started the whole Super Spartan thing. Didn't Dr Halsey joined up with convenants at the end of Spartan ops? So that's why I think he has gone rougue. To be honest I don't really know has Master Chief gone rogue. I got no evidence to back it up, if he has gone rogue.
