The music of the Halo franchise is one of its defining factors. Halo 4 had a good soundtrack outside of the game, but it still wasn’t “Halo”.

Well, if you’re ready for a true revival of the franchise, you best listen to the newly released piece of music below. Dubbed “The Trials”, this one song from the soundtrack on offer gives us a feel of both new and old, and it is wonderful. If it’s any indication of what’s to come with the rest of the soundtrack, then composer Kazuma Jinnouchi has my full and undivided attention.

Halo 5: Guardians releases on the Xbox One on October 27th. Stay tuned to OnlySP for a full review of the game once it’s available.

Let us know what you think of it in the comments section.

  1. This song is so awsome. It has all the halos if you listen. I want the whole thing already.

  2. oh man. the nostalgia kicked in good. also glad kazuma’s still using elements of his 117 track from halo 4.

  3. 343 are making this yeah? Shouldn’t that suck every drop of hype out of this instantly then? Or are you going to fall for an average game by this studio for a 4th time?

    1. A good chunk of the people working at 343 are former Bungie. They listened to the feedback if you played the beta. Every studio deserves a second chance (I’m not counting MCC as a fault).

    2. 4th time? That is interesting considering this is their second game. They helped on Reach but that was largely Bungie. Halo 4 was a rush job and is more on Microsoft than 343 (Halo 4 campaign was great. I could not care less about MP). Halo MCC was divided between like 2-3 different other gaming companies who were hired to do the work while 343 did Halo 5. Also, another rush job thanks to pressure from MS. Plus, that game was far too overly ambitious trying to smash 4 (now 5 with ODST addition) games into 1.

  4. Yeah, a song is totally going to make me want to play a game I’ve never cared about.

  5. Yeah, a song is totally going to make me want to play a game I’ve never cared about.

    1. Kind of a redundant statement there. Why would you bother listening to a song from a game you don’t care about?

      1. Or better yet, why is he here to begin with if he isn’t remotely interested in the game to begin with? Fanboys be fanboys.
