Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn gets new video

  • A new trailer for the Halo 4-hyping Web series has gone live. Called "Capture the Flag," the new trailer is set up thusly: "At Corbulo Academy of Military Science, cadets master many training exercises to simulate combat missions. Two cadets share their memories of childhood, when 'Capture the Flag' was just a game with less deadly stakes."

    The episodic series, to be presented exclusively online, is meant to get gamers salivating so they are fully wrapped into a frenzy when the new Halo game launches later this year.

    So while it may have messed up the opportunity to turn Halo into a multi million-dollar theatrical movie success, but the highly successful Xbox shooter franchise will be getting transformed into a live-action masterpiece nevertheless.

    In Forward Unto Dawn, Master Chief will work with a cadet who is ends up becoming a leader on a UNSC spaceship. Each episode will be 15 minutes and new episodes will be added on a weekly basis.

    A press release earlier this summer described the series, saying, "As Lasky comes to terms with his potential as a military leader, the terrifying alien alliance known as the Covenant arrives and turns his world upside down. Inspired by the Master Chief, he must decide what it means to be a hero."

    The Halo franchise is one of Microsoft's biggest cash cows. Since its initial launch in 2001, more than 40 million Halo games have been sold, generating more than $2 billion in sales. The failed attempt at a big screen adaptation was reported to be at its apex in 2005
