New Trailer For Ridley Scott's Halo TV Series

It's okay, you can lower your scepticism levels. Despite screen adaptations of video games rarely going well, the latest trailer for the live-action Halo Nightfall series is daring to give us cause to hope this one could be different. Maybe. 

Now, we're not promising it's going to be a triumph to rival some of Ridley Scott's best work - trailers for some of his latest projects appear to indicate brilliance, only for the final piece to turn out half-baked - but the Nightfall producer looks to be mixing up some grand sci-fi with some convincing character performances. 

Set between the action of Halo 4 and Halo 5: GuardiansNightfall introduces a pivotal new character to the Halo story - Jameson Locke (Mike Colter, The Good Wife). An agent of the Office of Naval Intelligence, Locke and his team are sent to investigate the source of a horrific biological attack, uncovering an ancient artefact that will present the group with a threat more deadly than the Covenant or the Flood.

Airing on Xbox consoles on 11 November alongside the arrival of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, we're becoming more convinced that this isn't going to be a glorified cutscene. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
