Halo 5: Guardians is a first person shooter developed by 343 Industries and published by Microsoft Studios. It is the eleventh game in the franchise, and the sequel to Halo 4. It is supposed to be the prequel to Halo 6, and it is exclusive for the next-gen console Xbox One. Everybody knows that if there is a saga that can sell the Xbox by itself, it is undoubtedly Halo. If there is a noticeable feature of the saga, is that it has always kept the quality of its games to the highest levels of its generation. The saga offers a very deep and rich universe, and high quality gameplay (either in the multiplayer online modes or in the main campaign).
The storyline of this game, as mentioned, is the sequel to Halo 4, and it has the well-known Master Chief as the main character. After the events of Halo 4, John-117 (Master Chief) decided to leave the UNSC in the quest for answers. The ONI is worried about what the Spartan can do to obtain those answers, and for this reason, they send the Agent Jameson Locke (Spartan-IV) to hunt for him and figure out what John is looking for.
In regards to the graphics, Halo 5: Guardians is displayed in 1080p, and by the time, the game has a frame rate of 60 fps. This means that it will take the most of the next-gen console Xbox One to show the players the true capability of the system. The sound effects make everything sound as if it was a real combat because even the tiniest sound have been recorded and added to the effects. This way, bullet impacts, steps, reloading actions, and everything you can imagine has its own sound.
I have good and bad news for the players of the saga. In my opinion, it is good news, but there is always someone who does not like the changes and who prefers the classic features, and what I am about to say is completely new, at least in this saga. Once you download this release, you will see that the first great new feature is the appearance of a Jet Pack. I have said "in this saga", because the Jet Pack is not something new in sagas such as Call of Duty or Titanfall. It will be equipped by default in all the players, and it adds a plus in mobility that will allow you to easily avoid the shots and escape a grenade, for example.

The sprint from Halo 4 is available in Halo 5: Guardians, but this time, it is unlimited and the speed increases while running. If you are running, you can perform a melee charge against an enemy and you will hit your enemy quite hard. You are free to use a slide movement that will allow you to slide in the floor and crouch. This move is very useful to change your covering without being too exposed. You are also free to use the movement Ground Down. It is the ability to jump from an appreciable height and hang in the air for some seconds while you prepare an aerial charge. In that time, you aim where you want to charge and thereupon, you are shot.
Finally, the last great new feature is something that other shooter sagas have had since several installments ago. Of course, I am talking about the ability to aim. Halo 5: Guardians have added a system of aiming and zooming in almost all weapons. You can use a trigger to aim, and the other trigger to shoot, as in the other FPS of the market. However, for those fans of "No Changes Please", you can keep on shooting from the hip, and it will be as efficient and useful as always.
