I see. What if we could visit locations from past games? Like Installation 04. Or 05? Or how bout other places like those in the books. If you give the players what they want. You need to include the whole fanbase and entice others to come in. That is why they are adding a Battle Royale "ability" in the multiplayer (as in a forgable Battle Royale. Not a prefabbed.) You need to include those fans that actually liked H5 and H4. You seem to only be considering those players, like myself, that have been playing since day 1. Yes, give us all what we want. Including the little kids who are new to the franchise. Those who like games such as Fortnite, PUBG, Apex Legends, COD, whatever. We want more people. If we maintain our current fanbase, we all will die and the game will no longer produce. We need the younger audiences. If this game is going to go on for the next 50 years or more, we need to let the game adapt. I love the idea they put forth. No BR unless you make one in a custom game. Simple and offers more than any other BR could. Make-A-Battle-Royale. In fact, I would love a 100 v 100 Slayer mode with A.I. ennemies too. Or a two team competitive Firefight. No killing other team... but a competition to get the most points in kills in Firefight. 2 teams of 4 kill A.I. adversaries for points, most points wins the round. Cool, right?I meant play it safe canon wise which is, of course, the context of the current topic. To play it safe in a canon/art/music context means to give fans what they want rather than go ahead and try to redesign things hoping that players will like it more than what they wanted. The first is playing it safe, and the latter is a gamble.HaloBungie343I wrote:I doubt a $500,000,000 game before marketing costs (Which can hit $300 Million or more. I do not know if that would include Outpost Discovery) would be considered a "Play-it-Safe" game. Seems more like a "Go-Big-or-Go-Home" game. As to the A.I., I can see a Durandal possibility. I have heard of that theory. I myself an not 100% convinced of that. The poem is called The Song of Roland. You can find a translated version here: http://www.yorku.ca/inpar/roland_crosland.pdf a student at the University translated it from Old French to Old English. Roland the A.I. I believe is not named after this Roland due to the clothing choice his avatar has made. A.I.s may choose their voice, avatar, and appearance. Roland chose a Pilot's clothing, an American English accent, and shows different forms of bravery than that of the Roland in the poem. While they were both were big players in battles, the Roland in the poem had a special sword made from three Saints' personal selves (blood, hair, etc.) and Mary (Mother of Jesus). These, combined, made the sharpest sword in existence. None of the saints, however, were Saint John. The Halo events can easily be referenced to Bible verses John 1:17 (For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.) Where Moses can be referencing the Librarian, and Jesus can be The Chief, and Revelation 1:17 (When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: "Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last.") This can reference how John was the First Spartan II. He is also one of the last. I believe the only living Spartan II's are Blue Team. (could also foreshadow Blue Team's deaths. Leaving John the last Spartan II) The poem never mentions Saint John. So, in my opinion, I find it difficult to believe This "Durandal" to be part of Chief. Not to mention the Coat-of-Arms for Roland was red with a yellow lion. No Blue was involved. A copy of Cortana would be good, in theory. I doubt Halsey would have done that. I feel she would be scared to do something like that. The only possibility pointing to Durandal is the letter D on the serial number for the chip. Remember though, any A.I. can enter a chip like that in the trailer. The chip could be a backup used for the actual Cortana. As she was under the Logic Plague, she may have messed up one of her Serial Numbers during the mission Cortana in Halo 3. The chip displays a D. Also remember one thing. That video at E3 2018. It was only an Engine Demo. Anything could be in-game, or just for show.I doubt that we'll be able to go other places than the halo, because keep in mind this is probably 343's "play it safe" game. Also I think the blue A.I. will probably be either a new one, a copy of Cortana (maybe), or the Durandal one. Durandal is mentioned in the poem that Halo references (I forgot it's name). Either way adding a Durandal character would be cool, since I also like Marathon.HaloBungie343I wrote:If this is truly Halo Infinite, would it make sense to do something similar to Destiny 2? Give you access to multiple worlds and rings? Possibly some space battles like Reach? So, Earth, Onyx, even the world mentioned in Halo: Renegades with all of that forerunner tech? Will we see or interact with Guilty Spark? (Yes, he is alive. Read the book I just mentioned.) Maybe he is the A.I. in the trailer? They are both blue after all.No one is sure if this is fact, but I’ve heard that in the Halo Spartan Field Manual that there is a GEN 3 of MJOLNIR armor, with GEN 1 being the classic (pre Halo 4) and GEN 2 being the newer (Halo 4-5). In the book GEN 3 is described as incorporating ideas of armor from GEN 1 that supposedly provide better protection. So this isn’t the same armor as before but it was designed to be similar. Other reasons for the armor change could be that since Cortana altered MC’s armor before Halo 4 that it should be swapped out to avoid her from somehow using it.SomeHaloFan wrote:What is with Chief’s Armor, Are we returning back to the Mjolnir Powered Assault Armor Mark VI? Also, in the trailer I see animals such as Rhinos, so is this taking place on a ring or back on Earth?
The game will apparently take place on a Halo, and no ones sure if there will be a level on Earth though I see it as unlikely.
At this point some answers are a combo of speculation and connecting the dots.
Another high probability would be the A.I. is Mendicant Bias. He is blue as well. He already is an A.I. He wants to right the wrongs he did. He overcame the Logic Plague, he is more powerful than Cortana, he is on Zeta Halo.
