Just think – within less than 24 hours, gamers around the world will be calling in sick for work, spending quality time getting reacquainted with Master Chief and Cortana as Microsoft and 343 Industries unleash Halo 4 upon the world.
If you’re looking for something to do before picking up your copy, we’d like to remind you of Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn – the five-part episodic live-action series that Microsoft created as a tie-in for the game.
We spoke to Australian actor Tom Green about the series – he plays freshman officer cadet Thomas Lasky. If you haven’t yet caught up with our video interview – now’s a good time! (We also spoke to 343 Industries Creative Director Josh Holmes, if you’re more interested in the game…)
The fifth and final 15-minute episode of Forward Unto Dawn has now hit the airwaves, so you can catch up with the entire series right now online – or, if you’re picking up a Limited Edition Halo 4, you’ll receive a 90-minute extended version in there as well.
Enjoy, folks. And remember, if you’re not grabbing a copy of Halo 4 within the next few days, it’s probably a good idea to stay well away from most gaming bits and pieces on the internet, for fear of spoilers. Trust me on this one.
