You can almost certainly bet on it. I've given up on the idea that sprint will be removed in future Halo games. Armor Abilities less so. Perks I am expecting them to remove in Halo 5 as those were the worst addition to Halo 4.
Sprint i dont mind as much as the perks. armor abilities are perks though you know that right? Also classes need to go as well among many other minor details that are important.
Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta requires the Halo: The Master Chief Collection game disc. Limited Time Beta Starts: December 27, 2014; Ends: January 22, 2015.
Like an action sack right from the start, playground for different things while the main multiplayer stays clean? The screens on the sides of the map are a cool touch.
They had the world in their grasp at the mention of 60fps, dedicated servers then lost everyone with 'new spartan abilities.'
Wait they claimed 60 Fps on dedicated servers. Oh boy the scrutiny they will if get. If that claim is not held up.
That trailer was mostly CG, if not all of it.
Halo 5 beta is going to be fun... should run throughout December, 6-8 maps, 2 arena maps, 2 forge maps.
BTW, the maps are going to be huge.
Watching the trailer over and over again I think they revealed two Spartan abilities. Probably these aren't "perks" based on what Frankie said, but probably usable by every player as standard movement tricks.
- Crouching while sprinting will result in a "slide"
- Jumping from big heights and then maybe like double-tapping B will result in a "ground slam" forcing other players in an area away.
Just some thoughts ...
I personally don't want any type of "spartan abilities" to me it's not why I played Halo. I never wanted custom load outs and different "perks" and abilities. That's what CoD was popular for. I like that Halo the only difference from player to player is skill, not finding a perk to try and exploit.
please, no CoD loadout/perks bullshit (AKA tactical package and support upgrade in halo 4), no armor abilities bullshit, no ordnance drop bullshit.
if they are dead set on "spartan abilities" so be it but it better not be a mere rebranding of armor abilities.
just give the fans what they want, no dumb fluff that takes away from the game
oh, and no sprinting please.
