New Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn Trailer Highlights UNSC Recruits

    August 27, 2012

The latest preview for Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn has been released, and this time it focuses on UNSC recruits. Forward Unto Dawn is an upcoming live-action web series meant to introduce people to the Halo universe in anticipation of the Halo 4 launch.

Despite the sci-fi trappings of the Halo series, the games are about war. That Microsoft and 343 industries are choosing to market the game through a more militaristic advertising campaign is an interesting decision. It could show a bit about the direction the Halo franchise is headed in and certainly shows the influence the success of games such as Call of Duty and Battlefield have had on the gaming market.

Take a look below at the latest live-action trailer for Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn and get ready for the series premiere on October 5th.
