Ridley Scott-produced Halo: Nightfall gets first trailer

News of Xbox Entertainment Studios being shuttered hit a week ago, but Microsoft is still moving forward with one of that branch's biggest projects. And as promised back at E3, 343 Industries has come to San Diego Comic Con to offer more tidbits about the Ridley Scott-produced Halo: Nightfall. The first trailer for the mini-series released today, revealing some of the new cast members and offering a glimpse into the story set to take place between Halo 4 and next year's Halo 5: Guardians.

Jameson Locke is an Office of Naval Intelligence agent at the center of a biological attack. An element has been discovered, one which can solely kill humans. The ONI is sent into a pocket reserve in order to destroy it before a rogue faction plunges in and mines it for themselves. Their journey leads them to an ancient artifact, culminating in a climactic clash for survival. Get to know Agent Locke now, beacuse 343 is promising that he'll play a major role in Halo 5.

Halo: Nightfall is set to arrive in November and will be included as part of Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
