As promised, here’s the more comprehensive version of my experiences on day one of Gamescom, the press day. Press day is invaluable, as it means shorter queues, and the general ability to move around within the halls, unlike the packed second day. More on that in another post. For the scoop on the press day, read on.
My first day at Gamescom culminated in an ongoing experience involving beautiful graphics and fresh perspectives.
With Gamescom opening to the general public on Thursday, MS and 343i provided an incentive to play the Master Chief Collection by showing us some of the Halo 2 Anniversary maps, and some of the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer maps as well.
Beginning next week is one of the biggest events within the gaming calendar, Gamescom, held every year in Cologne, Germany. It Europe’s answer to the likes of E3, and will see Microsoft and 343i showcase the forthcoming Master Chief Collection, with stands available on the show floor where I’ll be able to get my hands on it.
How on earth did this slip under the radar? Halo Waypoint have announced a new Halo novel written by John Shirley that will cover the early days of the Covenant.
As the video finished its run, I immediately recognised the voice of the Arbiter, who appears to be aiding a guest, our mysterious ONI Spartan, Agent Locke. But there’s more.
