"A Hero Reborn" Halo 5 ViDoc Analysis

Halo 5: Guardians Halo 5 343 Industries IGN

A 12 minute documentary of Halo 5: Guardians released today on IGN's Youtube channel.
You can watch the whole thing here (or view the embedded version below). The ViDoc weaves through a myriad of ideas, backstory, and behind the scenes footage while numerous 343 Industries employees have concurrent "mini interviews".

Noteworthy things from the video include (the corresponding images will be linked via #):
  • The introductory cutscene for the ViDoc's name, which might actually be in the game. It shows Locke climbing up some sort of rocky cliff (or getting up? His BR is laying on the ground beneath him, so he could have fallen) while the screen pans up to a view of Chief standing atop the hill. # # #
  • Yellow Gauss Hog, Yellow Mongoose, a Yellow "Wargoose" or Gungoose (seems to have weapons attached to it's hood. It's currently unconfirmed on what it is), a crashed Pelican colored yellow, and an AI character (construction worker?) driving a Mongoose. These might be possible construction themed vehicles. # # # #
  • A dev working on a 343 Industries themed Assault Rifle. #
  • Chief touching Cortana's chip, which vanishes afterward, and a apparition of Cortana. This is from the Blue Team level that has been shown before. # # #
  • An Elite presumably working on a parked Banshee with it's wings & hood raised. #
  • Development model of the Wraith (it's still the actual model that's in the final game), and some weird looking Tank in the background. #
  • Mini Forklift. #
  • A wall in Campaign that can be destroyed by a Shoulder Charge (it's the cracked wall underneath the destroyed stairs). #
  • Chat bubbles over team characters heads when they talk (possibly the same bubbles seen in game chat in Online Coop). # #
  • First Person view of the revive mechanic. # #
  • AI friendly Elites. #
  • First Person view of Locke ordering Spartan Tanaka to pick up a Scattershot. # #
  • Shade Turret. #
  • Anti-Air Turret? #
  • Captain Lasky. # #
  • Buck holding an unknown Magnum variant (his personal sidearm?). #
  • Dr. Halsey. #
I have compiled an extensive album of around 103 images from the ViDoc here. Though it certainly is not all of the obtainable screenshots.

Finally, the ViDoc itself can be viewed below if you declined to click the IGN link at the beginning of this article.

Thanks for reading! :rambo:
