Halo: The Fall of Reach launch trailer shows more of the CGI mini-series

The launch of Halo 5: Guardians for the Xbox One on October 27 will be accompanied by the release of Halo: The Fall of Reach, a three-party CGI animated series. Microsoft has now released a new launch trailer for Halo: The Fall of Reach, showing off some more footage of the series.

The series is based on the Halo tie-in prose novel of the same name. Here is a quick description:

"Relive the origin of the legendary Master Chief and the Spartan program in this animated adaptation of one of Halo's most beloved stories. 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 series will be available first for owners of the Digital Deluxe Edition, Limited Edition and Limited Collector's Edition of Halo 5: Guardians to watch on the Halo Channel apps. It's likely that Microsoft will collect all three parts and release it as a movie later on, as it has for its two previously released live-action digital series Halo: Forward Unto Dawn and Halo: Nightfall.

  • Three party's!!!
  • For Noble Six! For Cortana
  • I can't wait to see this then buy it as a movie later. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • A little disappointed at animation quality on the part where the kid was climbing up the pole.
  • They should give us a code to download the full movie from Xbox movies store Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Yeah was disappointing that nightfall was a locked down stream only to halo CH.(which I doubt they'll port to wm10 now) just like that top gear feature that came with forza ultimate
  • I almost bought the deluxe preorder edition of Halo 5 just for this series, but they hadn't spoke enough about it, only releasing one trailer, so I decided not to. If they had released this new trailer like a week ago, I probably would've gotten the deluxe version. Oh well, I hope they eventually release it for purchases as a TV series, like Forward Unto Dawn is viewable in Halo Channel as episodes with really neat 'explore' / behind the scenes stuff, rather than stiched together as a movie without that stuff on Netflix.
  • I didn't know they were doing this. I always thought if they did a Halo movie, they should start with The Fall of Reach.
  • This is probably as close we'll get. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • It's fine with me. I might even prefer a CGI movie because that means they have no constraints.
