Halo is back, making its new-generation debut and really giving the Xbox One a run for its money in Halo 5: Guardians.

After a lifetime of war and (SPOILERS) the loss of someone close to him, Master Chief is suffering. He's fighting on, but he's a haunted warrior. New and greater enemies threaten humanity's position in the universe, but visions are distracting him from his mission and drawing him towards a distant world...

It's not just about the Chief, however. Spartan Locke has been dispatched to track down our errant hero. As a more advanced Spartan IV he has the technical edge over the Chief, but the chances of the longstanding series protagonist going down easily are slim indeed.

The game makes use of the Xbox One's powerful hardware to provide epic, richly-detailed visuals, and seeing how the series looks on the new generation hardware will surely be a high-point for long time fans.

The big addition arguably comes in the game's multiplayer, however. Warzone is a new, massive-scale multiplayer mode that supports up to 24 players, along with friendly and enemy AI constantly dropping in and out to keep mixing things up. For Halo purists there's also Arena mode, which represents the series' pure, skill-based four-on-four combat.

Throw in four-player co-op throughout the campaign and there's plenty here to get Halo fans excited!
