Whether you’re a casual fan of the occasional shooter or are counting the days until this fall’s anticipated Halo 4, Microsoft has plans to keep you busy in the last few weeks leading up to the game’s release. According to Variety, Microsoft will launch Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, a webseries that will tie-in to the upcoming blockbuster action title. Forward Unto Dawn will focus on a young UNSC cadet who gets inspired by Halo hero Master Chief to join the fight.
While attempts at launching a Halo movie have failed in the past, developers 343 Industries are confident that the franchise’s first foray into live-action will satisfy both hardcore and casual fans.
“We needed a way to ensure there was a way for people to get onboard this universe without feeling intimidated,” said 343’s Frank O’ Connor.
