Microsoft is producing a live-action web series called "Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn" that introduces a new character and ties into the plot of Halo 4.
The company doesn't want the project to be viewed solely as a marketing stunt. "We wanted to do something unique from a narrative standpoint that's big in scale," 343 Industries director of franchise business management Frank McCloskey told Variety.
Over the course of five 15-minute episodes, "Forward Unto Dawn" tells the story of a young UNSC cadet who runs into Master Chief early on in the struggle between humanity and the Covenant and uses the legendary Spartan as an inspiration to rise through the ranks and serve as an officer aboard the UNSC Infinity.
"Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn" will air on Machinima.com and the official Halo Waypoint in the weeks before the game launches on November 6.
That's awesome! I've always loved the live action Commercials for the previous games and thought they should expand that into something more. Guess I should also finally pick up my copy of Glasslands and start reading that soon.
I wish we could watch them a little sooner than right before the game launches, oh well.
love the HALO...
Yea you had me at live-action web series... The premise does sound intriguing.
I enjoyed the previous live action Halo videos,so these should be great too.
Well then, I guess this is as close to a "movie" as we're ever going to get. Bring on the awesome!
I hope they start coming out sooner rather than later, its like everyday I look for new info but I cant find anything
Sounds great. I've really enjoyed all the media from past Halo games; extended trailers, webisodes, etc. The Halo 3 "Believe" commercial is still my favorite commercial of all time.
Now this sounds interesting. And why am I not surprised it's going to air on Machinima.
I LOVE MACHINIMA
this will be entertaining. Take it for what it is. A promotional tie-in piece for the game.
