Players who have already invested in an Xbox One console, just can’t do without the upcoming Halo 5 Guardians.
Microsoft’s most beloved exclusive franchise, Halo has been around for over a decade now and has helped the company sell so much of their Xbox 360 machines. Now, a new one named the Guardians is all ready to get launched in October. The company had an impressive E3 2015 conference during which they introduced the game’s mechanics as well as the war zone multiplayer demo. A lot of work has been put into the title and if you have been wondering, how they have managed to make such an awesome game, this behind-the-scenes video is an apt example. It is actually a series of videos that you could watch on their YouTube channel.
Making Halo 5
When they were preparing Halo 5 Guardians for E3 2015 reveal, the developers and the event organizers had to overcome a lot of obstacles. They have discussed every hurdle that they came across in these four videos which shows them busy with work. The team also rehearsed the multiplayer matches including the ones where they organized every player to be part of the war zone.
It is not easy to create the war zone, because the entire multiplayer match is filled with at least twenty four different players and there are many AI opponents to fight. 343 Industries who were behind the development had to organize the team, allow them to enjoy the title, but at the same time choreograph their movement to make it look good when Microsoft showcases it on the big screen in the Electronic Entertainment Expo event floor.
Building the Universe and Characters
A lot of work, including many motion capturing sequences have undergone to make sure Halo 5 Guardians is captivating as possible. The second and the third video focus on creating the universe, with characters played by real life actors. It brings a sense of depth into the narration and makes the storyline relatable, as if players are watching a movie. The designers also explain the phase during which they designed how the suit, the HUD and the overall world looked in Halo 5. They have a lot of comparisons to make to ensure that it didn’t resemble what was on Halo 4. Besides, it is going to be the first title in the series to make its way to the new Xbox One console and everyone wants to make sure it is worth it.
