Halo 5 main character is Agent Locke, says actor

[/img]The star of upcoming TV series Halo: Nightfall claims his character Agent Locke will be the main protagonist in Halo 5: Guardians, rather than Master Chief.

In an interview in X-One magazine (subsequently posted on Reddit), actor Mike Colter - who plays Agent Locke in the TV series - says he is the star of Halo 5.

“Yeah, I’m a playable character in Halo 5,” he claims. "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.

“I’ll have some cool weaponry, and some cool abilities, because by that time I’ll be a Spartan IV.”

While Colter didn’t give any further information on how much of the game is spent controlling Agent Locke, he did also give some hints that suggested at least part of the campaign involves searching for Master Chief.

“What’s not known, is whether I’m a friend or foe,” he 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.”

Agent Locke was revealed in June as the main character in upcoming live-action series Halo Nightfall.

Episodes of the series will feature on the Halo Channel, an “all-new interactive digital network” for Xbox One and PC which lets users watch original content, explore the Halo universe and join up with friends.

If he is the main protagonist instead of John, then there is seriously something going wrong with the halo series. Oh well. I am still getting it because I want to see how the master chiefs story plays out.

No you just want to play it. If you were only interested in the story, you would just watch youtube of the game or read the lore.

Anyways I was severely disappointed in Halo 4 (which I ended up not even buying after I pirated) so I will not be getting this one either.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I don’t just buy the Halo games to play them, I buy them to experience the story of the the Master Chief. He has such an amazing back story and it branches out into other storylines such as Halo 3: ODST, and Halo: Reach. But all in all I do not want to experience the Master Chiefs story through someone else’s youtube, but rather experience it for myself. And if that means I have to play the game in order to experience it, then that is how it is.

But I do not need some mr know it all who thinks they know me to tell me how I want to do things or tell me how I should do things.
