'Halo 5' Player Created Playable Battle Room Based On “Ender's Game” Movie
Players of "Halo 5" have used the game's Forge feature to express their creativity. Players have already produced stunning game environments such as Harry Potter's Quidditch match, entire Star War ships and lately, the zero gravity battle room of the "Ender's Game" movie.
The playable "Ender's Game" based Battle Room was created by a "Halo 5" player and Redditor Aurelien-131, reports Game Spot. For those unfamiliar with the Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game" novel or its movie version, the Battle Room is a training facility for children recruited by the International Fleet.
In the Battle Room training in "Ender's Game," the selected children are trained in space battle tactics. Two or more teams enter the Battle Room through gates on opposite sides. The goal is to infiltrate the gate of the enemy or hit all enemies, whichever comes first.
There are also obstacles scattered across the zero gravity room. They are meant to simulate planets or stars and can be used as a cover for anyone. The players don suits with thrusters which automatically stop or freeze a player in place when he is hit while each player is supplied with a non-lethal gun that only stops the suits of the players.
Aurelien admits he ran into some problems while he was making the Battle Room in the "Halo 5" Forge. Since there are no gates in the game, Aurelian solved this minor problem by placing a stronghold at each base in lieu of the gate. In the end, he managed to create a playable map that is stunningly similar to the mechanics of the Battle Room in the movie and novel.
The addition of the Forge tool in "Halo 5" last year is welcomed by all players. What's even more exciting is that 343 Industries plans to add more options and content to Forge, such as the Warzone Firelight update that might be available later this month.
