Halo 5 Reveals its Teaser.

Over the weekend Xbox’s YouTube page posted this video. It displays a sniper bullet engraved with the word traitor smashing through a spartan helmet. Attached to the video was a link to a Tumbler page containing a countdown clock marked for March 22nd 6pm.

Last night they revealed exactly what they had hidden up their sleeve.
When the countdown finished it provided a link to a sound cloud file titled “Hunt the Truth. Episode 00 Primer”. With the caption:
“What began as a high-profile hero story quickly turns into a full-blown investigation. Sources claim they know the “real Master Chief”: The boy, the soldier, the hero…the traitor? But who’s telling the truth?

The audio contained dialog from fictional war journalist Benjamin Giraud, who has been tasked with investigating Spartan 117, Master Cheif.

I’m assuming this is the first of an episodic series, that will slowly unveil some clues about Halo 5: Guardians. This is an interesting way to get the fans of Halo more intrenched in the story before the games release.
The series will be release weekly and its unspecified how long it will continue for. It would be nice to see this narrative explored in the full game, as a little extra content for the hardcore fans. We’ll know exactly how much these audio logs effect the story when the game releases this fall.
