Halo, in my humble opinion, is the one game that brought consoles into the mainstream adult population with the incredibly well-written and orchestrated, Halo. In the end Halo became most famous for its online multiplayer but the story side has always been my favourite part of the entire series.
And so when it was revealed that there would be a new TV series entitled Nightfall that will not only take place in the Halo universe but also merge with the upcoming Halo Guardians I got quite excited. However pretty much every film-to-game adaptation has been a disaster with most adaptations the other way being equally horrid. So it’s with a fair dose of apprehension I clicked play on the following video and then ended up boarding the hype train all the way to outer space. Holy cow this is looking incredible.
I’ve never been the biggest fan of the Halo guns but they are distinctive and the TV series has nailed them perfectly. The tiny snippet we get of the Covenant definitely indicates that they are going with a more polished and logical version. I’ve grabbed some screenshots for our video impaired readers. Just look how sexy this all looks.
Halo: Nightfall will be included on the Halo 5: Guardians disc and hopefully if the stars align it will somehow find it’s way onto Netflix and DSTV locally.
