How often do we get an ambitious live-action webseries that has great production values, a solid plot and impressive special effects? Not that often unfortunately. Nevertheless, not only is Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn a project that attempts to dig deeper in the lives of its protagonists, but this is also an episodic series that manages to tell a humanizing story that the Halo games simply eschew in favor of more action-oriented experiences.
This 19-minute debut episode follows the story of a group of freshman cadets of the Corbulo Academy of Military Science. And what an inviting story that proved to be!
Halo 4 launches on November 6th and until then, Machinima Prime will continue to release episodes of Forward Unto Dawn.
