343 Industries has released an all-new trailer for Halo: The Fall of Reach – an animated series adaptation of the beloved Eric Nylund novel of the same name.
Told in three connected acts, the high-quality animated production is included in the Halo 5: Guardians. Digital Deluxe Edition, Limited Edition, Limited Collector’s Edition and Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition Xbox One console. It can be viewed via the Halo Channel when the game launches on Oct. 27.
Halo: The Fall of Reach tells the dramatic tale of the origin and intrigue behind the SPARTAN program that propelled characters like the Master Chief and Dr. Catherine Halsey into the pantheon of Halo lore. The story reveals the events that brought Master Chief and Blue Team together, including their Spartan training and their daring mission to strike back at the Covenant during the first days of the deadly alien invasion.
The animation is produced and directed by SEQUENCE, the award-winning Vancouver-based animation studio responsible for the “Terminals” featured in Halo 4 and Halo 2: Anniversary, and this marks their most ambitious and high-fidelity Halo animation yet.
