Halo: The Master Chief Collection was one of the big reveals at Microsoft’s E3 conference, compiling all four of the main Halo entries into one package for the Xbox One. Now a new trailer has been released narrated by Thel Vadam, aka the Arbiter, and an ally of Master Chief. In this trailer, titled Terminal, he talks about his rise in the Convenant forces, how he is known as the destroyer by humans, and how he is a friend to Master Chief.
However during his monologue Arbiter says something rather striking, about events that could turn Chief against him.
“How well do you know your friend, human? And what will you call me when you learn the truth of what I have done?”
The terminals in the Halo Collection will explore more of the pasts of different characters, and through here it may be that players may learn some horrific events Arbiter took part in before he was given that title. It may even set up something for the character who could make a return in Halo 5, after not being part of Halo 4.
