Halo: Nightfall debut trailer shows Halo 5: Guardians’ Agent Locke in action
The first trailer for Halo: Nightfall, the upcoming live-action TV series produced by Alien director Ridley Scott, has been revealed by Microsoft at San Diego Comic Con.
If you’re interested in Halo 5: Guardians you might want to give this a watch.
Taking place between the events of Halo 4 and Halo 5, Nightfall will introduce us to ‘legendary manhunter’ Jameson Locke.
“Led by Locke, the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) agents are forced to coordinate with a Sedran commander with a remarkable history and deep-rooted mistrust of ONI,” says Microsoft. “As the plot unravels, they’re drawn to an ancient, hellish artifact where they’re forced to fight for their survival, question everything, and ultimately choose between their loyalties and their lives.”
It is thought Locke will play a major role in Halo 5: Guardians, and this episodic series will detail how Locke escaped the terrorist attack on the colony world of Sedra and found himself chasing the legendary Master Chief across the universe.
Halo 5: Guardians will be released exclusively on Xbox One in autumn 2015.
The first episode of Halo: Nightfall will be included in this November’s Halo: The Master Chief Collection; further episodes will then be released weekly on Xbox Live.
