While Halo fans may never get a feature-length film, Microsoft is hoping to release the next best thing—a Ridley Scott-produced digital series, Halo Nightfall.
The live-action series will debut alongside November’s Halo: The Master Chief Collection, but the first trailer gives fans a peek at what’s in store.
Halo Nightfall will focus on Agent Locke, a UNSC operative who will play a major role in 2015’s Halo 5: Guardians. Mike Colter stars as Locke as he investigates a Covenant threat that puts a target squarely on humanity’s back.
Nightfall will be available on Nov. 11 to those who purchase the Collection for the Xbox One. The compilation will also provide players access to the Halo 5 beta, which is set to launch later this year.
