So I was on a different topic (talking about how we want 343 to keep big secrets from being revealed during E3) and I posted what would be the perfect Halo E3 (at least for me).
What do you guys think about it?
Please share your own ideas (maybe 343 listens to some of our dreams :D)
Here is mine:
What I wish for Halo 5’s E3 presentation:
The room is dark for a few moments. Suddenly, half the room lights up in blue, the other one in red.
A monk chorus starts chanting Halo’s iconic melody… Suddenly a number 5 appears on screen.
A small fraction of the cut scene from the first mission begins (one or two minutes) followed by a quick 2 minutes gameplay montage full of action and mystery (provided by some voice over with no context). Finishing with a new animation of the big cover art for Halo 5 while we listen to the “There are two sides for every story” line.
Someone from 343 Industries appears on stage while the big cover art is still on screen. He/she talks about how this game will be awesome, etc. He/she then talks about how Halo’s multiplayer is truly important for 343 and finishes his/her time on stage with the words “This is Halo’s next gen multiplayer”. Just as he/she finishes his/her line, the cover art image (that remained on screen) breaks with a cool animation that reveal a quick multiplayer trailer where they show fragments of:
Cool Spartan customization
New game types
Use of Spartan Abilities
Classic Halo mode
A successor for Spartan Ops
A closing ground pound unveils, through a transition animation, (I’m trusting a lot in the animators’ skills :D) the Halo 5 Xbox One console. We see it just for some brief 1.5 seconds (that’s more than enough for the internet to take pictures of it, don’t worry) and then we see nothing but “October 27th 2015”
The room goes black again, everybody trying to dry their wet pants. After 5 long seconds of absolute darkness, a Sangheli character violently assassins an enemy Spartan. The audience hears the, now famous, line: “Assassination!”
Xbox logo appears on screen and everybody listens: “Only on Xbox One”.
