The new Terminal trailer for 'Halo: The Master Chief Collection' was just announced by 343 Industries and Certain Affinity -- the developers helming the upcoming Halo 5 video game.

Last weekend, both companies held a panel at RTX 2014 at Austin, TX, where they discussed details for the upcoming game, as well as introducing the newest trailer from the Halo universe.

Now available on YouTube, the trailer is voiced by the 'Arbiter' who originally fought for the alien Covenant, but defects over to the humans in Halo 2. Once a feared adversary, the 'Arbiter' becomes 'friend' to the series' protagonist Master Chief.

Few details were revealed in the trailer apart from implying that 'Arbiter' has secrets that threaten this friendship. It is possible that more of the 'Arbiter's' storyline will be fleshed out in the upcoming Halo game.

New features announced by the panel included the Coagulation map, which is one of six remastered maps from the original Halo games. Also, original multiplayer game types have been included.

A new version of the Mongoose ATV vehicle is being added that includes an optional forward-guns mount. This vehicle has been dubbed the 'gungoose' in reference to its added firepower.

Halo 2 will be given the 'Anniversary treatment' that includes new modes such as Ricochet from Halo 4, Race, SWAT, and Infection. When a fan asked if Halo 3 will be getting the same treatment, 343 Industries replied that it was not planning such upgrade.

Regarding release dates, 'Halo: The Master Chief Collection' will start appearing in stores on November 11, for $60.

'The Master Chief Collection' is an Xbox One exclusive that features a massive graphics and features overhaul of the first four games in the epic sci-fi franchise. Enclosed in a single Blu-ray disc, the anthology includes the remastered Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, Halo 3, and Halo 4.
