Spartan Locke and Master Chief Face off in Microsoft's reveal of Halo 5: Guardians cover art. But who are these mysterious Spartans below?

Microsoft have today, revealed the cover art for their upcoming smash hit Halo 5: Guardians. The cover art features, as expected, the Master Chief and Commander Locke facing off. What we didn't expect to see were the Spartan fire teams below.

These fire teams according to Microsoft will "play a crucial role in the showdown between the Master Chief and Spartan Locke."

It seems that each character will have their own loyal following. The chief will command serving Spartans that have either fought with him or heard of the legendary Spartan hero from a far. Soldiers who are fighting for truth and not propaganda.

I imagine Locke will command the new breed of Spartan, the mission is always; follow orders, execute authority without question. Locke will not tolerate any sentimental thoughts when it comes to treatery.

But what is going on in Halo this time around? Can Master Chief really be a traitor? (add your thought in the comments)

So, lets break it down, Microsoft have released two trailers that are titled 'Hunt for Truth.'

The first trailer is titled “All Hail,” which highlights long serving Spartan Locke hunting down the now seemingly compromised Master Chief. Apparently Commander Locke is tasked with hunting down the heroic chief. Locke will be a playable character in Halo 5. How much of the game we will play as Locke is unconfirmed at this stage.

The second trailer from the 'Hunt for Truth' campaign is titled “The Cost,” which shows Master Chief with the upper hand over a critically injured Spartan Locke.

The chief narrates as the trailer plays out, he is delivering a powerful manifesto about the true price of being a hero. Two sides of the coin indeed! But who is telling the truth?

... Goosebumps Much!!

Microsoft have refused to comment further upon the identity of the mystery Spartan teams but what they have said is that all will be revealed come June, when we all head down to E3!

Halo 5: Guardians is going to be absolutely colossal. 343 and Microsoft have collaborated beautifully on this title. The advertising and teasing of division within the ranks is stellar. Taking time with a title is encouraging, this latest Halo will certainly give fans a truly immersive gaming and cinematic experience.

I think Halo 5: Guardians will create a world that will surpass any other possible gaming experience.
