Microsoft's Xbox Wire has confirmed the launch of Halo 5: Guardians as the 27th October. The game is to be launched worldwide, as an Xbox One exclusive title, on that date. However Microsoft and 343 Industries have replaced the question concerning the release date with a plot puzzle. It has published a pair of game trailer videos showing alternative endings for Halo 5: Guardians, asking who will be the hunter and who will be the hunted?

Halo fans are being asked by the Xbox Wire to #HunttheTruth. The two live action plus voiceover trailers show very different outcomes. During the game players will "question everything they thought they knew about its heroes, marvels and mysteries," so it's hard to know what is the truth as things stand. Beyond the epic drama, 343 Industries intends to "amaze players with the sheer size of the worlds and battles they’ll experience," and the scope and scale of the game.

All Hail: Spartan Locke draws down on the compromised Master Chief, questioning his legacy and motives.

The Cost: shows the Master Chief with the upper hand over an injured Spartan Locke, delivering a powerful manifesto about the true price of being a hero.

If, after watching the above videos and much chin stroking, you can't work out the 'truth' you might be relieved to know that all will be revealed on the run up to E3 in June. Interested Halo fans need only stay tuned to the 'Hunt the Truth' episodic narrative audio series published on HuntTheTruth.tumblr.com every week.

Years ago I was disappointed that halo stopped being made available for PC's.
It was a good game.
If I go and spend money putting together a good PC gaming system, why should I have to then fork out more to buy a less capable console?
Plus, after a pile of bones in my right hand got fused (mouse is comfortable but console controls are impossible to use) I do not find playing on any console machine anywhere near as easy and as enjoyable as playing on a PC. Not for one minute am I picking on console players (to each his own), I am picking on the companies and their restrictive policies.
And I find it ridiculous that, of all companies microsoft, should be so stupid as to restrict it's sales in this way.

Well, whether it's stupid or not depends on sales, I guess.

MS want to sell consoles. To do that, they have to have high-end games that will motivate people to buy the console so as to get the exclusive games.

So, whether it's stupid depends, from their viewpoint, on how much PC-gamer revenue they lose, compared to how many console and console-game sales result, and that's long-term, not just over one game.

Personally, I'm in a similar position to you, except that not only can I not get it for PC, but apparently I can't get it for my Xbox 360 either. MS apparently expect 360 owners to buy another console.

And yes, before anyone says it, I know that sooner or later, old consoles have to be replaced because technology and performance has moved on a lot, enabling better graphics, performance, etc. It's no less annoying, though.
hahhaa ill hunt the truth hahaaa and the truth is this game will look and be nothing like the trailer ;)
