SDCC 2012: Valor, Duty, the Master Chief in the ‘Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn’ Trailer

Get a nice, long look at the live-action Halo web series in this full-length trailer from Machinima released during SDCC, plus find out more details about the series after the jump.

The five-episode web series, which begins a month before Halo 4 hits, follows UNSC cadet Thomas Lasky as he works through his feelings of ambivalence about military service at the outset of the Human/Covenant war which provides the background for Halo fiction. Lasky will later go on to be the captain of the UNSC Infinity (so, spoilers, I guess), a vessel important to Halo 4. The series will show how the Master Chief inspired this young soldier as the aliens bring their war to humanity.

Here’s the official synopsis:

It’s finally here! The first full-length, official, live action Halo series is here on Machinima Prime! “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn” is a live-action digital series that takes fans back to the terrifying beginning of the Human/Covenant war, when the Master Chief inspired a young cadet who would eventually become a leader aboard the UNSC’s greatest vessel: the UNSC Infinity.
