The opening cinematic for Halo 5 is insane

What are you doing the week of 27 October?

You're going to want to cancel it. Then take a few days off work. Pull a sickie if you have to. You're just going to want some free hours to pour into Halo 5: Guardians - if the new opening cinematic is anything to go by.

Centring on the franchise's newest hero, the sequence screams along at break-neck pace, with Spartan Locke and the rest of Fireteam Osiris touching down on an ice-covered world amidst a Covenant and Promethean battle. Their mission? To obtain a 'high value' target.

Ambitious, epic, we're hoping this Halo lives up to the hyperbole it's generating so far.

Halo 5: Guardians arrives on Xbox One on 27 October
