Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn Episode 1

Leading up to the release of Halo 4, Microsoft has produced a 5 part live-action web series: Forward Unto Dawn.

The flashback episodes will follow the Master Chief and a young UNSC cadet, Thomas Lasky, who grows up to become the captain of the UNSC Starship Infinity.  If you’ve seen the Halo 4 trailer, you’ll know that this same ship crash lands on the new alien planet, right alongside Chief.

Forward Unto Dawn will be a compelling series, “filling-in” new fans on the back story and will provide cinematic glory for the uber-nerd fan hordes.

Episode 1 premiered on Friday.  My favorite part was, of course, the warthog.

Halo 4 drops on November 6.

New Halo 4 Video @ E3

(courtesy CNET)

Its finally here.  Opening the E3 convention in Los Angeles, Microsoft unveiled a juicy video of Master Chief in action.

I love how similar this footage looks to the trailers for the new movie Prometheus.  The two share the same sense of alien horror and similar style in spacecraft/alien hardware.

I also love how similar this game is to Halo 1.  It begins with a crashed UNSC ship.  The player and the Master Chief share a sense of wonder as they explore the new planet, coupled with an atmospheric sense of mystery.  Does anyone else appreciate how cutie the grunts are while simultaneously acknowledging that you have no problem slaughtering them?

Welcome back, Chief.  We missed you.
