To the delight or dread of gamers everywhere, Microsoft is on the verge of releasing a new live action series based on the Halo franchise. Personally, I’m always leery of game tie-ins, but the footage looks decent. The series will be produced by Ridley Scott, so will it be Alien or Prometheus? Let us know in the comments below.

From Xbox/Microsoft:

Halo Nightfall Cinema First Look takes you behind the scenes with Halo franchise director Frank O’Connor, executive producer David Zucker, and actors Mike Colter and Christina Chong of the new live action series “Halo Nightfall”.

Secure your access to “Halo Nightfall” debuting November 11, 2014 in Halo: The Master Chief Collection, only on Xbox One.

Halo Nightfall is a live action series providing insight into the origin and backstory of legendary manhunter Agent Locke (Mike Colter, “The Good Wife”), a pivotal new character in the Halo universe who will play a key role in Halo 5: Guardians.
