The Sprint: The Road to E3 Episodes 1-4
Halo just released the sprint series update for the Road to E3, the playable demo and Warzone showcase that we saw this past week. These videos are well worth the watch!
Truly makes myself appreciate the work that 343i has put into this game so far. I’m very pumped for October to see the finished product.
Halo 5 Guardians: Limited Collectors Edition First Look
According to Gamezone, the box art for the limited collectors edition of Halo 5 has been leaked by Gamestop Italy.
For the $99.99 Limited Edition version, you’ll the game “plus new digital content” and “exclusive items wrapped in a uniquely designed steel book.” The $249.99 Limited Collector’s Edition throws in a commemorative numbered statue from 343 Industries.
All of the items state “For Display Only” so the packaging is possibly going to change.

Will Halo 5 be the Best Selling Halo Game Ever?
This is a great article from Richard Bowman at Shady Tales. Fantastic read and makes a damn good point. Article in it’s entirety is below.
The Halo franchise is one of the most profitable in today’s gaming market with a staggering 60 millions combined copies sold world-wide, earning various spin offs and even branching into the lucrative mobile market, first with Halo Spartan Assault followed by its sequel Spartan Strike. So it would seem that Halo 5 Guardians success would be a sure thing, another record breaker for Microsoft and 343 and all would be business as usual for the Master Chief. However, everything might not be quite as clear cut as it used to be for Spartan 117, as in recent years the Halo series has started to show a few cracks in its armour, the competition is now stronger than ever, and even the most hardcore fans enthusiasm has started to fade following a few lack lustre releases and PR nightmares for 343 industries.
Let’s take a look at the numbers
Halo 5: Guardians Cover Art
The pieces of the puzzle have been put together and officially been released by Microsoft. It appears to have been a continuation of the #HUNTtheTRUTH campaign.
As stated in the original article, this appears to be the cover art for the game. Interesting enough I think this is the most “busy” box art for a Halo game that we have seen in a long while.
#HUNTtheTRUTH Red and Blue Team
If any of you have been following the Halo 5 buzz lately, you’ll most likely notice a few images floating around that look like armor pieces. 343i and Microsoft have been running an ongoing campaign for Halo 5 by emailing pictures to people. Someone recently discovered that these make up into a larger image as a promotional material.
Chief Canuck from Read Up Live! has been compiling these images and the full image is almost complete.
Even though it’s not 100% completed, you can see most of the image already. Here are a few more from the image so you can get a better look.

Yesterday was a bonanza if you were looking for some answers about Halo 5.
Josh Holmes, 343’s studio head for Halo 5 Guardians, took to twitter and answered several fan questions about Halo 5 Guardians. Below are those questions and answers:
I’m actually a little bummed about this. I liked how ODST’s campaign was. But it’s certainly not a deal breaker. After all, the previous campaigns with Chief have all been linear.

Yesterday a Twitter user asked Josh Holmes, Studio Head for Halo 5: Guardians, about a special edition H5 Xbox One. Josh replied with the following. Pardon the quality as the original tweet was deleted, but I was able to get a screencap.
Not 100% sure why this particular tweet was deleted. Could have been that Josh let the cat out of the bag too early. More updates to come
