It appears the control scheme will be different in the full version of Halo 5: Guardians. It doesn’t sound like a big change, but it will feel slightly different than the beta.
Studio Head for Halo 5: Guardians, Josh Holmes, answered a fan’s question on the game’s controls on Twitter. Holmes said: “It’s changed pretty dramatically from beta. In a good way IMO“.
Holmes also answered another question on Twitter regarding the slide mechanic in Halo 5: Guardians. He said: “It’s highly situational so it gets used less than the other abilities.”
From the sounds of that, it looks like people won’t be able to spam the slide technique in Halo 5: Guardians. It can only be used sometimes when it’s the right situation to use it.
If you were happy with the control scheme from the recent Halo 5: Guardians beta, you may be in for a slight surprise when the full game comes out later this year. It doesn’t sound like a huge change, but the controls might feel slightly different from the beta.
People that have played the beta for Halo 5: Guardians will know the game feels different from the older games. It feels faster and there are way more abilities for you to use too.
Halo 5: Guardians is an Xbox One exclusive due out in late 2015.
