Special editions for Halo 5: Guardians comes with the animated production of Halo: The Fall of Reach. Based on the Eric Nylund’s 2001 novel of the same name, the animation done by Sequence will feature the birth of the Master Chief as a legend and the start of the war with the Covenant. In the trailer for Halo: The Fall of Reach, we see the transition from frail children to impeccable killing machines as the morality surrounding the Spartan program erodes once a new threat springs up.
In between scenes, Master Chief’s narrates and recounts his view on war: “War extracts a heavy toll from those it touches. It cost cannot be measured in brass and gold. For some, that price is higher than others, but humanity isn’t the enemy. Humanity is what will save us all. Soldiers are made not born.”
“Kidnapped as children and conscripted into a brutal military training and augmentation program, the Spartans were designed to be the ultimate weapon against chaos and insurgency – but when a dangerous alien alliance known as The Covenant declares war on humanity, the Spartans might be our only hope.”
The animation studio of Sequence also produced videos for the Terminals in Halo 4 and Halo 2: Anniversary. The series will be available October 27th on The Halo Channel. In addition, Halo 5: Guardians will release on the Xbox One on the same day.
