Halo is one property that needs no introduction. One of the best first person shooters around, the game is mega hit amongst gamers. Now, with the Halo: The Master Chief Collection for Xbox One set to be released soon, the makers have saw it fit to simultaneously release a digital series that will accompany the game.
Taking place between the events of Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians, Halo: Nightfall follows the origin story of legendary manhunter Jameson Locke (Mike Colter) and his team as they are caught in a horrific terrorist attack while investigating terrorist activity on the distant colony world of Sedra. 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.
As the plot unravels, they’re drawn to an ancient, hellish artefact where they’re forced to fight for their survival, question everything, and ultimately choose between their loyalties and their lives. Agent Locke is a new character in the Halo universe poised to play a major role in Halo 5: Guardians releasing on Xbox One in 2015.
Executive produced by Ridley Scott and boasting top notch production quality, Halo: Nightfall is one digital series we want to see unravel on our screens. Check out the trailer above and judge for yourselves, it really does look pretty darn good.
