Damn. Where’s a genetically enhanced super-soldier when you need one…


Microsoft announced earlier this year that two new shows based on the epic Halo saga would be coming to Xbox sometime in the near future, and now we finally get to see what that first series will look like. 343 Studios released the first trailer for Halo: Nightfall this week at SDCC, so you bet your sweet rocket launcher we jumped in our Warthog and procured a copy to share with you. Ok, so maybe we just pulled it off the internet, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting that we finally get to see what’s in store for all us Halo fans. Now the trailer doesn’t give away much, but it does do a great job of giving Nightfall a dark almost Prometheus vibe (hopefully it’s better then that epic let down though), and most importantly it looks and feels like the series really is part of the Halo universe. I’m sure we’ll get a better look at the show the closer we get to November, but for now it’s just nice to get even just a little tease of what’s to come.

Produced by Ridley Scott and written by Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring, Halo: Nightfall is a five part web-series that takes place between the Halo 4 and upcoming Halo 5 game. The show will introduce us to Jameson Locke, an ONI manhunter and all new Halo character that plays a huge role in the upcoming Halo 5. This will be the second web-series based on Halo released by 343 studios. Halo: Forward Until Dawn was released in 2012 before Halo 4 and was actually pretty damn good. Hopefully Halo: Nightfall will continue that trend. So take a look at the trailer and let us know what you think. Does Halo have a future on the small screen, or should Microsoft stick to making games.

Halo: Nightfall will air this November on Xbox and will also be included with Halo: The Master Chief Collection
