When it comes to changes to the Halo multiplayer formula, I'm usually a bit of a Debbie Downer. But I have a sneaky feeling that 343 Industries may have nailed it this time. I can't really explain why, but I'm really liking the look of Halo 5 so far.
Which is strange because I really feel as though 343 Industries borked Halo 4 multiplayer in a very big way.
This time round however, 343 has really gotten the pro gaming community involved in a very big way, right from the start. Ex-Halo pros like Ghost Ayame and Strongside are actually part of the 343 team now and everything I hear out of that camp suggests that competitive play has been a big focus this time round. For me and my own personal tastes? This is exactly what I want to be hearing.
Can't wait for that beta.
