Watch the first trailer for Halo: Nightfall

Halo: Nightfall is the upcoming live action television series produced for Xbox by Ridley Scott. It'll come out later this year with the Halo Master Chief Collection on Xbox One. Watch the first trailer to get a sneak peek at what's coming with 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."

We can't wait to watch Halo: Nightfall later this year. What do you think about the trailer? Sound off below.

  • Blah
  • That took the wind out of my sails. Definitely not looking forward to it now, which is a bummer. I had such high hopes for it. In retrospect maybe Nadella saw this and realized XES was doomed to fail.
  • It could come watchable if the story was about Master Chief or someone looking as real Spartan as described in the novel. No racist offence, I'm talking about 2+ meters height and intelligent face, which makes believe he can be strong, smart and lucky enough to be best of the humanity. This trailer looks like B for TV.
  • Remember this is an origin/backstory. Possibly Agent Locke becomes a spartan during the course of events. He certainly looks spartan in the Halo 5 trailer.
  • Who cares how Terminator became The Terminator? That's why #4 couldn't be as popular against #2 and the terminator series failed totally. Halo = Master Chief and Cortana.
  • Every Street United is quite good and had the potential to be a franchise. Sucks that it won't now.
  • It's a teaser trailer. Hold on to your horses.
  • Meh
  • Cool
  • My keyboard is sticky :o
  • call IT
  • You didn't get it -_-
  • Oh dont' worry, I got it. You didn't get it! Think harder!
  • Pretty sure he got it and you didn't Ostro
  • I'll definitely be watching this. Halo FTW!
  • I want to see how Cortana will look like.
  • I'm guessing you haven't played Halo 4.....
  • No, I didn't. AFAIK Cortana died, but IMO Halo w/o Cortana is not a Halo.
  • She's a sexy hot check, I tried to Bing her up once, found even sexy Gif.
  • +520
  • I thought this was directed by Steven Spielberg..
  • No, that's the other Halo thing coming 2015.
  • What's the difference between the two?
  • Different plots? Halo: Nightfall is between Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians, but the Spielberg one is something else. There hasn't been too much details yet, though.
  • Ok, that makes me a lil happier. Maybe he'll get it right. This one looks lame, to put it nicely.
  • It looks a lot like Prometheus this trailer..! Lol.. When they go into a cave and everything seems grey/black and white and only the suits have some lights.
  • it's a 1 minute trailer, I don't know how something can look "lame" in 1 minute, when you don't even know the story, you don't know the fights, you don't know the enemies, you don't know anything.... but oh well, I guess complainers just love to complain, even if they don't even now anything
  • It became lame the moment the 343 logo came up... 343 sucks for having ruined the halo series and making it into call of halo... I hate them :(
  • Odd cuz that was my fav halo and im not a fan of cod
  • 343 didn't ruin Halo, Halo 4 was a good game... Here comes a big statement from me.... Bungie ruined Halo..... Halo Reach was an abomanation to the story line and Halo Uni that we all love... It got the book The Fall of Reach and threw it into a toilet and set it on fire... Pillar of autume wasn't actually ON Reach as no UNSC can go into atmo as they have no anti grav engines. Cortana was on the Pillar of Autume when the Cov attacted. POA had to turn back to help defend Reach. Mr 117 only just got his Shield for his armour just before leaving, how did the SIII's in Reach get not just shields but heavily customised Armour... All this when SIII's can't opperate SII armour in the first place... SIII armour would of been sweet... oh and ALL of them were higher rank than the MC including the SII on the team... go figure... They could of made it work.... they just didn't care... The Limited edition came with Dr Halseys journel to try fill the gaps but its a god damn mess.... Oh also they had 30 spartans from the books to choose from anyway... why make up more bogus charictors... yea have multiplayer mod mad but leave my god damn story alone.... another reason i like 343 is they said in forums and interviews that some of those 30 will make it into future games.... YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • The best
  • Something to counter the fifty shades of grey trailer.
  • F'n awesome. I can't wait.
  • I just wet myself
  • That music.....goosebumps!!!
  • I just squeed my pants a little bit.
  • The Flood
  • This was great. I did not expect them to be on the derelict Installation 04. Can't wait to see LCDR Locke in action in Halo. Hoping that he will be paired with Sarah Palmer to find Halsey.
  • Looks terrible. Exactly what I expected when I say RS was 'Executive Producer'. My advice is don't bother, you will devalue the Halo franchise!
  • Cant f'ckin wait. So pumped.
  • Im so excited I could shit.
  • Don't shit bro
  • You need a diaper?
  • Looks promising. The visuals look to match the level of the game and it looks to feel authentic.
  • I was the opposite, I felt like it didn't look much like the games at all, though I still have yet to play 2 and 3.
  • I will watch it before I make any judgments
  • Looks awesome
  • The characters look to have been plucked from that soft-porn TV series 'Spartacus: Blood & Sand"
    I didn't expect much from Ridley Scott....and on the strength of that video, I am even less interested.
    Steven Spielberg's series on the other we're talking!
  • It looks really good if its an element that only kills humans it must be left over from the human/forerunner war curious and curiouser
  • I'll wait for the final product.
  • I'm pretty sure you have to. They probably won't give it to you early.
  • I lolled. Notably because that's the exact kind of thing I would say.
  • I need to replay all the old ones to get story line and read books, sadly when I had Halo2 in college on I mostly played mulitplayer team deathmatch. 
  • Yeah, it could be interesting, but save for the name, and a couple of acronyms, nothing in that teaser looks anything like Halo, the environments even don't look right. I'll reserve judgement but with how much quality television is out there this is going to have to do something pretty spectacular to get me watching.
  • Netflix?
  • Nope. Xbox Video.
  • Reminds me of Battlestar Galactica. Can't wait
