With this summer’s Gamescom and E3 all wrapped up, all Xbox owners can do now is wait for the final release dates to some of the biggest titles of the year that Phil Spencer and the Xbox team have been boasting is the best first-party content year ever. Many are certainly looking forward to Forza Motorsport 6 (September 15th), Rise of the Tomb Raider (November), Fable Legends (supposed to be in 2015), but most are looking forward to the return of the franchise that started as the first big exclusive for the original Xbox, Halo 5: Guardians.
The fifth installment in the Halo series is set to launch October 27th, but Gamespot found a partial leak of Halo 5: Guardians’ soundtrack and screenshots of the menu for the new multiplayer mode Warzone, which was announced at E3.
In all a little over 15 minutes of game music was posted by the YouTube user Halo Memes. The music features the iconic Gregorian chant dating back to the original game but includes some new well composed additions. Overall it is sounding great. The YouTube user also said in his post that the music was available in the main menu after the Halo 5 beta randomly received an update, but was not playable. The music is said to be composed by Kazuma Jinnouchi, who composed numerous track for Halo 4 as well as Metal Gear Solid 4 and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.
The screenshots of the Warzone menu don’t reveal much information about the game, but they do show the extensive customization of your Spartan in multiplayer, down to your avatar’s armor, emblems, weapons skins, even their stance. The rest of the screen captures are posted below.
Gamespot reached out to Microsoft to confirm the authenticity of the leaks, to which Microsoft responded, confirming leaks and calling them “unfortunate.”
