Super exciting first look at the upcoming live action web series Halo: Nightfall. Nightfall will be a sort of Halo origin story following Agent Jameson Locke, a playable character from Halo 5: Guardians, and his ONI (Office of Naval Intelligence) unit, kinda like the CIA or something. Nightfall is set between Halo 4 and Halo 5 and will lead into the plot of Halo 5.
Nightfall and all of its five episodes have been under the creative control of Scott Free Productions and, obviously, 343 Industries, and the executive producer of the series is the one and only Riddly Scott of Aliens fame. You can check it out on Xbone, Xbox 360, and other Microsoft devices on November 11.
This isn’t the first live-action show Halo has tried, in fact Halo: Forward Unto Dawn aired in 2012 and is available on Netflix. It’s still exciting to see a new Halo web series (even if it’s only available on Xbox somehow), the casting sounds great and with Scott producing this is definitely gonna be awesome!
