Are you ready!? At Comic-Con International: San Diego today, 343 Industries unveiled the first footage of Halo: Nightfall. Produced by Ridley Scott and written by Prison Break's Paul Scheuring, Halo: Nightfall is a five-part digital series that will be available via X-Box Live in November.
"Halo: Nightfall introduces a pivotal new character, Jameson Locke, a legendary manhunter and agent with the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), Earth’s most powerful and secretive military branch. When he and his team are caught in a horrific biological attack, they unravel a plot that draws them to an ancient, hellish artifact, where they will be forced to fight for their survival, question everything, and ultimately choose between their loyalties and their lives."
No sign of the Master Chief in this trailer, whether or not he will show up in this mini series is still unknown for now. Also to note this is NOT the Halo project that Steven Spielberg is producing, it is still a separate series that is supposedly still in production. What more can be said from this trailer...well just watch and see for yourself.
Halo: Nightfall takes place between the events of Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians, Halo: Nightfall is Locke’s origin story which will lend insight and understanding into the character he becomes in Halo 5: Guardians
