Halo: Nightfall tells the personal story of Jameson Locke,
a legendary manhunter and agent with the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), Earth’s most powerful and secretive military branch. He and his team are investigating terrorist “chatter” on the distant colony world of Sedra, when they are caught in a horrific biological attack. Led by Locke, ONI agents are forced to coordinate with Randall Aiken, a local commander with a remarkable history and deep- rooted mistrust of ONI. As they unravel a plot that draws them to an ancient, hellish artifact, they will be forced to fight for their survival, question everything, and ultimately choose between their loyalties and their lives.
Not content with dominating the gaming world, the epic Halo franchise is expanding once again into the realm of live action – and here’s proof of what it can achieve, particularly with the combined powers of science fiction maestro Ridley Scott and seasoned TV director Sergio Mimica-Gezzan (Falling Skies, Heroes, Battlestar Galactica) leading the troops into battle.
Halo: Nightfall serves as an action-packed introduction to the world of Halo while also allowing hardcore fans to get an insight into the direction of the franchise as Halo 5: Guardians begins to take shape. If you thought Halo was just a game, think again!
