“The HELIOSKRILL is a work of art crafted by a Sangheili prodigy inspired to test her skill against the best that humanity could muster.”

“Spartans with Marine experience prefer NIGHTFALL armor when stationed on inhospitable worlds, due to its best-of-class life support.”

343 Industries advises that the images shown here are early hi-res armour images and are not fully representative of their in-game versions. They’ll be less shiny and more “worn” and “weathered” in-game, making things more realistic.

What do you think of these armour sets? Excited to see more?
