Watch Halo: Fall of Reach's Launch Trailer

Chief's origins.


Microsoft has released the launch trailer for Halo: The Fall of Reach, the upcoming animated series, which is based on the 2001 Erik Nylund novel of the same name. The animated show is a three-act series set both before and after the Covenant attack, showing the origins of Master Chief and the Spartan program.

The Fall of Reach is included with the $100 Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition and will also be available to buy and watch separately.

Halo 5 launches on October 27 exclusively for Xbox One. Microsoft also recently confirmed that the game has gone gold and will sponsor a NASCAR event later this month. In addition, the game's awesome-looking Forge mode will launch in December, while lots and lots of free multiplayer DLC is in the works.
