November 15th 2016 will mark the 15th anniversary for the critically acclaimed space shooter, Halo! Halo was conceived back in 2001 by the developer Bungie and focuses on a war between humans and an alliance of aliens known as the Covenant. Halo has spawned 5 main games and 5 spinoffs within the 15 year span.
Tomorrow, November 15th, the developers of the newest installment (Halo 5: Guardians) will be hosting a livestream at exactly 3:43 PT on their Twitch channel here! The following was posted to the official Halo website:
HALO 5 “ANNIVERSARY THROWBACK” PLAYLIST
Battle on some of your favorite Halo: Combat Evolved maps re-imagined in Halo 5 thanks to Forge and a number of super talented community builders! I’ve seen Uny working on these maps and they look fantastic. I also know there’s excitement building externally and I want to manage your expectations by clarifying that this is Halo 5 gameplay on sweet Forge re-creations of classic maps with the Halo: CE pistol as the starting weapon.
What kind of birthday party would it be without goodie bags for attendees!? I don’t want to spoil the surprise but I think you’ll dig it.
PLAY WITH 343
Throughout the day members of the 343 team will be online playing in Halo 5’s Anniversary Throwback playlist with anyone and everyone who cares to join us. Next week I’ll publish the gamertags you’ll want to watch out for (and you’ll recognize us by the official 343 emblems we’re rockin’.) We’d also love for you to join our official “Halo Club” on Xbox Live! – 343 Studios
An Anniversary trailer was made for the special occasion and that can be viewed below:
