New Halo 5 Fathom map footage reveals one of the two available whales

If we know anything aboutHalo 5's Fathom multiplayer map it's that it promisestwowhales. That's a couple more than almost any other online game.Unfortunately, it's impossible to tell from the footage whether this is Timmy the Whale (named after creative lead Tim Longo) or that other whale no one liked enough to name.

The Fathom map's been seen before, but this video gives us a good look at its cramped underwater design in action. It's a UNSC base at the bottom of the sea built to try and recover Covenant tech from a sunken Sangheili carrier and while it's got some wide spaces it obviously lacks some of the height and openness you'd get if you were on dry land.
