Microsoft has kicked off a huge marketing push for Halo 4 today, announcing new multiplayer details, a Limited Edition package and now we’ve received details on an all new live-action series set in the Halo Universe.
Entitled “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn”, the series will be produced by Microsoft which will consist of five 15-minute shorts, each telling an original story about the how Master Chief inspired a young UNSC cadet to become a leader aboard the largest UNSC vessel, the Infinity.
The series will debut this October on the new Machinima channel on YouTube and on Halo Waypoint as a series of five episodes.
The newly announced Halo 4 Limited Edition will include access to the “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn” Special Edition via Halo Waypoint, with never-before-seen bonus footage, as well as exclusive fiction and behind the scenes videos.
Full details about the story, cast and director will be announced at Comic Con in July.
