The first episode of Forward Unto Dawn, a short live action series for Halo 4, debuted today without too much of a bang. Oh, sure, plenty of fans were eager to see it, but let's just say the series is taking its time with all the action.
Forward Unto Dawn begins by giving us a sort of introduction to the cast of UNSC recruits, a gaggle of young folk who are training to become competent Marines. Hilariously, it has more of an afternoon teen drama feel right now than a Halo live action, but just knowing Master Chief will be joining later in the series is enough to keep us watching. After all, we knew early on the series was more about these UNSC newbies; more specifically, a young cadet who later serves aboard the UNSC Infinity and appears in Halo 4.
Every episode runs for (or will run) about 20 minutes in length. Halo 4 will be out November 6.
