Halo 5: Two Sides To Every Story

A new Halo 5: Guardians trailer debuted last night during The Walking Dead. In it, Spartan Locke, a character who was introduced in the miniseries Halo: Nightfall and will be a playable character in the upcoming game, walks through a bunch of rubble to come upon a wounded Master Chief, all the while monologuing about remembering the Chief as a savior and not as a betrayer before he points his pistol at him.

What the hell is going on here?!? What did Master Chief do that allegedly caused all that destruction? And to make the waters even murkier than before, the end of the video directs you to a second trailer subtitled, "The Truth is Never What It Seems." In this trailer, their roles are reversed and just compounds the confusion.

In addition to the role reversal, the statue of the Master Chief has damage on it in this trailer, possibly implying this takes place after the first trailer and Master Chief somehow escaped Spartan Locke? Or perhaps it's more indicative of both players being playable and there being two different storylines instead of the combined but alternate storytelling of Halo 2 with Master Chief and the Arbiter? Who knows. The only thing we know for certain is that Halo 5: Guardians comes out October 27th.
