The first Halo game was one of my favorite FPS games ever but sadly over the years with increased repetition I lost my interest, even Halo 4 won’t bring me back. However, the story and characters have always been the highlight for me and I’ve always wanted to see the never-ending-movie that they are making, sadly its fate remains unknown.

Forward Unto Dawn is a short series made in the Halo universe, they are live action and presents a new atmosphere for Halo, darker and more realistic as opposed to the games that use popcorn blasting machine guns. The video is a trailer of the upcoming series, it does look like it is more dramatic than action oriented but they both look interesting, they are finally taking the Halo franchise where it belongs.

The first episode premiers October 5th, 2012.
