Directed by Sergio Mimica-Gezzan and written by Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring, Halo: Nightfall is set between the events of Halo 4 and the upcoming video game Halo 5: Guardians, centering on Mike Colter's Jamison Locke. The story follows Locke and his Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) team, who are tasked with investigating a possible terrorist operation on a distant planet. They suddenly become drawn to a mysterious alien artifact and are forced to fight for their survival and question everything they have been told.
The project was initially shot as a feature film, executive produced by Ridley Scott and David Zucker, before it was split into segments that will serve as individual episodes. Take a look at the latest footage, before this digital series debuts November 11 on XBox Entertainment's Halo channel and as part of the video game set Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
