Master Chief has recently moved from Halo video games into the television arena, with the TV series debuting on Paramount+. Despite what reservations fans might have about the move, there is still much to like about the different way it takes in storytelling. However, for those of you who have not yet watched the show, the first episode of the Halo TV series is now live on the Paramount+ YouTube channel.
It is an interesting move for sure, just like a game demo that is meant to entice viewers to jump on another streaming service. With the first episode being free, you can decide for yourself if the Halo show is worth subscribing to Paramount+.
Considering that there are plenty more shows in the works that are using video games as source material, this could be the best way to get players on board. By giving us a taste of what is to come without necessarily investing in a service, the ball is pushed further into consumers’ courts to decide.
Master Chief is not just moving into television, with a crossover with social deduction multiplayer game Among Us now live as well.
If you are wondering just what the fuss is all about, catch the first episode of the Halo TV series on Paramount+ below. Just take note that you will have to be in the right region to watch:
