Halo 5's multiplayer is something I'm already excited about. But when you watch clean, 60 frames per second footage of really good players absolutely wrecking shit, that excitement goes to a whole new level.
This footage was captured by Unyshek, a player who calls himself the Halo professor. He's pretty good. Good enough to completely dismantle the team he's up against in this video. Just by watching this video I'm starting to get a feel for how Halo 5 will play in the wild. I love the movement, the potential for escape, the shooting. I have a feeling 343 Industries has really nailed it here
Why am I excited about Halo 5's multiplayer? Mainly because it seems designed for exactly the type of Halo I enjoy: competitive, balanced 4v4 MLG-style arena play.
Halo 4 really lost its way trying to innovate (or imitate) in the wrong direction. Halo 5 has stripped things back and seems to have successfully reinvented the core of the multiplayer experience. That really excites me. Can't wait to play more.
