Chief looks great. I like the lighter green color compared to the darker colors from 4 and 5.

That sound of the shield powering up made me smile.

Seems they are also looking to take the music back to its roots, too.

There are screen captures showing that this takes place at least three years after Halo 5.

How did he end up in space ?

He tried to relive his glory days from Halo 2 where he goes into space with a bomb but because he's really old now it didn't go so well.

Sounds like the Master Chief I know.

Meh. I'm really glad they ditched the H4/H5 armor, but I'm not a fan of the color scheme. The lighter color just emphasizes how all of 343's armor look like plastic. I was actually kind of okay with the newer Chief armor after they ditched his hideous orange visor plate and gave him the proper gold one. Maybe this will grow on me though.

I think part of the problem for me too is that the armor is brand new? Which... what? There's a three year time jump and presumably they just lost a war with Cortana, so how the fuck does he have brand new armor? It doesn't even seem to make sense in canon, but it also just looks bad? Like cheap CG that's way too clean, like the fucking Red vs Blue CG characters. Compare this to his H3 armor, which is full of bumps and dents and dirt and grime and those 2007 graphics look so much better and realistic than this.

To complete my negative nancy tirade, this trailer is the worst Halo trailer for me. I think Halo has a near universal track record for fantastic trailers, but this one didn't hit the mark for me. The bit where he's watching his wife and little girl is cheesy, but that's okay. That kind of cheese usually works on me. But it sounds like she's talking to a tickle me Elmo doll or something instead of an actual kid. The responses are just so fast they feel pre-recorded and it really took me out of the scene. Also Chief felt like a fucking robot. Even his """bad ass""" line fell flat. Bad trailer, hope the game is better.

It will be interesting to see how this trailer actually relates to the story line. Remember halo 5’s initial reveal trailer? He was in a hood and cloak walking up to a guardian on a snowy mountain. None of that happened in the game.

I agree with bandit. I only watched the trailer because the Halo series has had some dope ass trailer (halo 3 and halo 3 odst respectfully) but this trailer was meh.
