As the parade of trailers continues to flow out of San Diego Comic-Con, 343 Industries and Microsoft Corp. revealed a trailer for a new web series, titled Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, to help promote the developer’s upcoming release of Halo 4.
Fans have been teased with a cinematic rendering of Master Chief since Peter Jackson’s vision for the game franchise has been abandoned. Although not exactly what gamers were hoping for, the new five-part web series introduces everyone’s favorite Spartan, as well as those constant pain-in-the-ass Covenant.
Director Stewart Hendler told Empire that he “wanted to bring a sense of reality and gravity to the world.” A difficult task considering the subject matter.
The web series will go live on Oct. 5, and episodes will be posted every week leading up to the game’s release on Nov. 6. You can watch the trailer for the web series below.
