The next in the special series of previews for the upcoming web series Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn has arrived, and it shows how poetic (and scary) the prospect of cryogenic sleep can be. Forward Unto Dawn is a live-action web series set at the beginning of the human/covenant war. The previous trailer for the series showed the hesitations and excitement of new recruits as they get their hair clipped off.
The new one released today features two cadets from the Corbulo Academy of Military Science. One is hesitant about his upcoming cryo-sleep training and asks his roommate what he should expect. She describes the process as similar to a dreamless death.
The five-episode Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn web series will premiere on October 5th on Machinima and Halo Waypoint. The story in the series will lead up to a tie-in with Halo 4, which launches November 6th.
