Halo 5 is slinking out of the shadows with some rather hard hitting hints for the upcoming smash title. Nightfall's Agent Locke will not only be a playable character in Halo 5: Guardians but according to voice actor Mike Colter, he's head honcho and the main character with some serious skills.
In an interview with X-One Magazine, Colter revealed, "Yeah, I'm a playable character in Halo 5, Once Halo: The Master Chief Collection is released, and then Halo 5 comes out shortly thereafter, you're basically going to be playing a game with me as the primary character."
Who is Locke?
Lieutenant Commander Jameson Locke is a SPARTAN-IV super soldier and an Officer of Naval Intelligence. He serves under ONI's Section III as an Acquisitions Specialist, his duties include the retrieval of important objects from the enemy as well as the assassination and tracking of high profile individuals.
Locke is described as a competent soldier who takes a professional approach to combat situations and inspires loyalty in those under his command. However, he is troubled by some aspects of the organization he serves under.
"I'll have some cool weaponry, and some cool abilities, because by that time I'll be a Spartan IV."
Spartan IV is the same make of Spartan as those aboard Halo 4's UNSC Infinity, in case you're wondering.
We know from Halo: The Master Chief Collection is that Locke will be dispatched to track down John-117. A recap of Master Chief's most awesome, epic adventures basically:
"What's not known, is whether I'm a friend or foe," Colter teased. "The relationship between Master Chief and Jameson Locke is going to be interesting. Because what's the outcome?
"Is he dead or alive? Because that's usually what a manhunt comes down to, dead or alive, but you won't know what the purpose of finding Master Chief is [right away]. Or what will happen if we do find him, what condition he will be in, and where he's at mentally. But I'm sure that'll be a plot twist in Halo 5."
Lets have some plot predictions! What do you think? Let's hope this doesn't prove to be another Arbiter-style fanbase scandal.
