The live-action trailers for the “Halo” games are usually the best part about the game launches. The games themselves? Eh. “Halo 4″ is on the way later this year, and to get you ready for that, Microsoft has sunk plenty of bucks into a new original web series called “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dark”, which looks a bit like “Starship Troopers Jr.” Check out the trailer for yourself.
“Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn” is a live-action digital series that takes fans back to the terrifying beginning of the Human/Covenant war, when the Master Chief inspired a young cadet who would eventually become a leader aboard the UNSC’s greatest vessel: the UNSC Infinity.
The first episode airs on Machinama in October. The game arrives in November.
