As far as live-action adaptations ago in the world of video games and films, there is plenty of room for improvement. Some projects fall short of expectations while others amazingly succeed, and this November, Microsoft and producer Ridley Scott are looking to see what they can bring with the forthcoming release of the new series, Halo: Nightfall.
Halo: Nightfall introduces a pivotal new character, Jameson Locke, a legendary manhunter and agent with the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), Earth’s most powerful and secretive military branch. When he and his team are caught in a horrific biological attack, they unravel a plot that draws them to an ancient, hellish artifact, where they will be forced to fight for their survival, question everything, and ultimately choose between their loyalties and their lives. Taking place between the events of Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians, Halo: Nightfall is Locke’s origin story which will lend insight and understanding into the character he becomes in Halo 5: Guardians.
