Halo 5’s New SPARTAN is Called Agent Locke

In speaking with Eurogamer during this year’s E3 last week, Halo 4 developer 343 Industries’ boss Bonnie Ross revealed the name of the new character that’s featured on the cover art for Halo 5: Guardians .

Also appearing in the announcement trailer for Halo: The Master Chief Collection , this new SPARTAN character is referred to as Agent Locke. According to Ross, Locke plays a “ key role ” in Halo 5 , specifically in Ridley Scott’s digital series, entitled “ Halo: Nightfall ”.

Halo: Nightfall , a separate series to what Steven Spielberg is helping to produce, will tell Agent Locke’s origin story. The first episode of this series will release alongside Halo: The Master Chief Collection on Tuesday, November 11. Subsequent episodes will release in the weeks after the game’s launch.

Halo: Nightfall , as explained by Ross, is meant to provide information on Locke so when you end up with Halo 5: Guardians you have an idea of the background of this new character.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection , which began as a rumor back in May , will include all four games from the main Halo series– Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary , Halo 2 Anniversary , Halo 3 and Halo 4 –on one disc.

To top it off, each game is said to be rendered in 1080p and will run at 60 frames per second . The Master Chief Collection is slated to release on Tuesday, November 11 this year–just about exactly 10 years since the original Halo 2 initially launched–exclusively for Xbox One.
