With little more than a week remaining before San Diego Comic-Con spews pages of exciting news into the geekosphere, Microsoft has released a trailer for its upcoming live-action web series, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. The recently announced web series will lead right into the November 6, 2012 release of Halo 4, with five weekly episodes that will each run for roughly 15 minutes.
There's not a whole lot going on in this teaser, though with SDCC around the corner and Forward Unto Dawn only a few months from launching, you can probably expect to hear plenty more in the next week or two. What we know right now is, the series tells a prequel story that follows a young cadet's encounters with Master Chief. That same cadet grows up to command the UNSC Infinity, a ship which factors heavily into the story of Halo 4.
