That's two parts (35 mins) of episodes called "Forward Unto Dawn"
It's pretty much like a movie in pieces?? I don't think any other game franchise has came even close to what 343 Industries (Halo's new Producers who replaced Bungie) are even doing.

Honestly.
Watch them. They are amazing.

The whole thing is 90 mins, it comes with the Limited Edition of the game but they are being released in parts for free online too.

Low budget 90 minute film doesn't equal a good franchise.

It comes out on the same day, Zet.

& Relent, low budget? wtf!
They built a fucking warthog. They built all the weapons, all the armour. All that stuff alone will cost a shed ton of money.
+ the CGI effects, paying people.. and the quality of the files themselfes are really high anyway (they are obviously reduced for streaming online).

It's not exactly the best "film" ever, but I mean it's just amazing that they are taking steps further then pretty much every other game franchise.
and I think this mini film thing is a warm-up / practice to an actual Halo film, personally.

Forward Unto Dawn is a ship.
This little episode thing is about cadets that will go into the UNSC when they are older :p you do see adults (and I think Spartans) towards the end, though.

Yeah Civ, that's probably part of it. Watch the beginning of the 2nd episode.

I am fangirling too hard

Civ you have no argument. It's basically a video game soap opera.

FYI they've been building those warthogs forever now.


Edit; btw the game was leaked if you're really that desperate to play ;o
