SDCC12: First ‘Halo: Forward Unto Dawn’ Series Trailer Drops

At Comic-Con in San Diego the first trailer for Halo: Forward Unto Dawn screened for an enthusiastic crowd. This live action/CGI web series sounds, and looks, pretty great.

Here’s the story:

Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn tells an exciting story of heroism and sacrifice on a scale never before seen in the Halo universe, taking fans back to the beginning of the human and Covenant war and leading into the events of Halo 4.

Set against the backdrop of a United Nations Space Command (UNSC) military academy, a group of highborn cadets are training to be the next generation of soldiers in the UNSC’s ongoing war with insurrectionists in the outer colonial planets. Among these cadets, Thomas Lasky struggles with his doubts about this war, and with the burden of expectations he may not be able to carry.

As Lasky comes to terms with his potential as a military leader, the terrifying alien alliance known as the Covenant arrives and turns his world upside down. Inspired by the Master Chief, he must decide what it means to be a hero. Halo fans who experience Lasky’s thrilling origin story in Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn will be rewarded with special insights into the story of Halo 4 and the “Halo Infinity Multiplayer” experience.

This could be interesting. Very interesting. Check out the trailer below and look for Halo: Forward Unto Dawn to arrive in October.
