The video game Halo is what Bungie and Xbox on the map, and 13 years later, the franchise is still going strong. The upcoming live action series, Halo: Nightfall, will take place between the events of Halo 4 and the upcoming game Halo 5: Guardians.
We’ll be introduced to Agent Locke, a new character to the world of Master Chief. Check out it’s first trailer below, which oddly looks nothing like Halo. The series is being produced by Ridley Scott, so there’s that.
Here’s the official synopsis for Halo: Nightfall:
Taking place between the events of Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians, Halo:Nightfall follows the origin story of legendary manhunter Jameson Locke (Mike Colter) and his team as they are caught in a horrific terrorist attack while investigating terrorist activity on the distant colony world of Sedra. Led by Locke, the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) agents are forced to coordinate with a Sedran commander with a remarkable history and deep-rooted mistrust of ONI. As the plot unravels, they’re drawn to an ancient, hellish artifact where they’re forced to fight for their survival, question everything, and ultimately choose between their loyalties and their lives. Agent Locke is a new character in the Halo universe poised to play a major role in Halo 5: Guardians releasing on Xbox One in 2015.
Halo: Nightfall will launch exclusively on Xbox One on November 11th, 2014. The same day as the Halo: Master Chief Collection and Halo 5 Beta is released.
