Dev Talks On Minor Features In Halo 5: Guardians

by Damian Seeto

Studio Head for Halo 5: Guardians, Josh Holmes, has now answered a few fan questions about the game on his official Twitter account.

Holmes’ first answer about Halo 5: Guardians is that the game is unlikely to have an active reload system. The active reload system is something you can see in the Gears of War series. Holmes said that it would “take a lot of balancing” in order to have it in Halo 5. However, he said it’s something that they could consider including in Halo 6.

Holmes also reassured fans that the audio mix in the full version Halo 5: Guardians will be improved. A fan didn’t like the sound of the audio when he played on the beta a few months ago. He felt the sound of footsteps were too quiet. It looks like the audio will be fixed when the real game comes out, so fans shouldn’t worry too much about it.

Lastly, Holmes confirmed that the spectator mode will be returning in Halo 5: Guardians. This shouldn’t surprise anybody as the spectator mode has always been very popular in the previous Halo video games.

Halo 5: Guardians is an Xbox One exclusive and will be available worldwide on October 27th, 2015.
