A new tv series is getting ready to burst onto our streaming services in March and it’s based on one of the most explosive video games of the last 20 years.
The official trailer is here for “HALO” and it’s going to be watched by loads of gamers and non-gamers alike on Paramount+ from March 24th.
Halo: Combat Evolved was the first in a franchise of video games that first launched on Microsoft’s Xbox game console in November of 2001. The game was then later ported to PC and Mac in 2003.
Since then we’ve seen many new chapters of the Master Chiefs story with the latest being Halo: Infinite on the Xbox Series X and S consoles.
Known for having a brilliant science fiction single-player story mode and a fast-paced action multiplayer mode Halo has been top of the charts for critics and players on each release rarely having a misstep.
The new series shows the war between the United Nations Space Command and the Covenant who are a military alliance of alien races and the main antagonists in the lore of the series.
Pablo Schreiber will play the hero Master Chief in the 9 episode season with Natascha McElhone as Dr Catherine Halsey who also has a prominent story in the game series.
Jen Taylor who is the voice of “Cortana” in the games reprises the role for the series and Windows users will recognise “Cortana” as their version of “Siri” the AI personal assistant for your device. Jen Taylor also provides the voice for that version of the AI.
