Halo: Fall of Reach Animated Series Trailer Released Online

Following the 343 Studios panel at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2015 today, Microsoft and 343 revealed new information about Halo 5: Guardians. But they started first by showing off a brand-new teaser trailer for the tie-in animated series Halo: Fall of Reach.

The series will ship with the Digital Deluxe Edition, Limited Edition and Limited Collector’s Edition of Halo 5: Guardians and will debut on the “Halo Channel” with the launch of the game on Oct. 27. An official synopsis was also released:

"Halo: Fall of Reach tells the dramatic tale of the origin and intrigue behind the SPARTAN program that propelled characters like the Master Chief and Dr. Catherine Halsey into the pantheon of “Halo” lore. The story reveals the events that brought Master Chief and Blue Team together, including their Spartan training and their daring mission to strike back at the Covenant during the first days of the deadly alien invasion."

An infographic was released as well, showing off how each part of the Halo story connects into Guardians. Fall of Reach for instance, gives the origin of Blue Team, a key component of the Guardians storyline.
