Leading up to the release of Halo 4, Microsoft has produced a 5 part live-action web series: Forward Unto Dawn.
The flashback episodes will follow the Master Chief and a young UNSC cadet, Thomas Lasky, who grows up to become the captain of the UNSC Starship Infinity. If you’ve seen the Halo 4 trailer, you’ll know that this same ship crash lands on the new alien planet, right alongside Chief.
Forward Unto Dawn will be a compelling series, “filling-in” new fans on the back story and will provide cinematic glory for the uber-nerd fan hordes.
Episode 1 premiered on Friday. My favorite part was, of course, the warthog.
Halo 4 drops on November 6.
