Halo: Nightfall trailer teases live-action gaming spinoff

The first Halo: Nightfall trailer has been released, offering an early look at Ridley Scott’s upcoming live-action spinoff to the iconic gaming series.

With the Halo inspired series set to launch this winter, Microsoft’s first Halo: Nightfall trailer has been shown off as part of ComicCon in San Diego, introducing the new character of Jameson Locke in the process.

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,” Microsoft has said of the Halo: Nightfall trailer.

“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.”

The teaser adds: “When he and his team are caught in a horrific biological attack, they unravel a plot that draws them to an ancient, hellish artefact, where they will be forced to fight for their survival, question everything, and ultimately choose between their loyalties and their lives.

Agent Locke is played by Zero Dark Thirty star Mike Colter in the series produced by Ridley Scott.

The Halo: Nightfall series will ship as part of the Halo: Master Chief Collection which is set to land for Xbox One gamers on November 11.
