This is something that I’ve actually be really looking forward to and waiting for, and now Microsoft is releasing a live-action series of Halo 4 videos to increase the hype for the game. The series is going to be exclusively online and is supposedly meant to satisfy gamers, making them salivate all over their keyboard for when the new Halo game launches later this year (presumably closer to the Holiday season).
I really wish that Microsoft would somehow fund a Halo CGI movie (it seriously could make billions!), but for now, a live-action web series for one of my favorite shooters a completely fine too. It’s nice seeing that it’ll get transformed into a live-action beauty. Hopefully the popularity around it will come on Microsoft like a behemoth and force them to make a movie though!
In their new web series, “Forward Unto Dawn” Master Chief will be working with a cadet who will then become a leader on a UNSC spaceship. Each episode in the web series will run on about 15 minutes and new episodes will be added to the series on a weekly basis.
The show will officially premiere on October 5th of 2012. Here’s the teaser:
Here’s the full description of what we can expect in this teaser video along with what might be to come in future episodes:
“Get into the minds of three recruits as they enter Corbulo Academy in Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. Welcome to Corbulo Academy of Military Science, the UNSC’s premiere training facility for its brightest minds. From the very beginning, this arduous academy readies them for a life a of order, structure, sacrifice and belief in the righteous cause of the UNSC.”
A press release described this upcoming series by saying, “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.”
Is anyone excited to see a web series coming out? If it does well enough, do you think that Microsoft may look into making a CGI movie out of the Halo series? I think that it would be a huge success based on the popularity of the game along with the fact that everyone loves a good CGI explosion-filled movie! It’d be fantastic!
