Microsoft have released the first look trailer from San Diego Comic Con of their new series, Halo: Nightfall, produced by Ridley Scott.
It’s based around a character called Jameson Locke and set between Halo 4’s events and the upcoming 5. The blurb had this to say:
“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.
“Taking 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.”
This release of the trailer seems to be not only to entice fans to get excited, but as a way of showing that following the closure of Xbox Entertainment, that the Halo TV plans are just fine and dandy.
The series will air in November on Xbox One, roughly around the time of release of The Master Chief Collection.
