Halo 5 Guardians

In March, Microsoft launched a new viral marketing campaign for its Xbox One first-person shooter Halo 5: Guardians called "HUNT the TRUTH". It was a season of fictional podcasts that offered some of the backstory for the game. Today, Microsoft launched a second "season" for 'HUNT the TRUTH' as Halo 5: Guardians gets ready for its official launch on October 27.

The first season focused on journalist Benjamin Giraud, voiced by Keegan Michael Key (Key and Peele) as he tried to find the "truth" behind Halo's central character Master Chief. He returns in season two, but this time the focus will be on another character: the rebel leader FERO, voiced by Janina Gavankar (True Blood).

Microsoft has assembled a voice cast of well-known Hollywood actors for the second season of "HUNT the TRUTH" including Mark Hamill, Tamara Taylor, Alan Tudyk, Peter Serafinowicz and others. The events in the season will lead directly to the storyline in Halo 5: Guardians.
