The project is being produced in part by Ridley Scott [though Scott Free Productions], the series seems to have a darker tone, much similar to that of the Alien-universe, including Prometheus. In the preview, we even get a split-glance at a new enemy type that looks utterly similar, yet terrifying. The premise is based on Agent Jameson Locke, portrayed by actor Mike Colter, who is attempting to find the Master Chief who has seemingly gone AWOL after Cortana’s demise.
If you plan on picking up Halo: The Master Chief Collection this November, you will have premium access to the Nightfall series. The series itself is set to debut November 11th, 2014 exclusively on the Xbox One.
Halo 5: Guardians, which will also star Agent Locke, is set to release in 2015, also exclusively to the Xbox One.
