New Halo 4 "Cryo" Vignette Builds Anticipation for New Web-SeriesThe upcoming Halo 4 web-series, Forward Unto Dawn, will be launching in just over a month – and to further build anticipation for the launch, the Halo team and Machinima have released a new teaser entitled Cryo.

The trailer for the new live-action mini-series focuses on two new recruits at Corbulo Academy of Military Science, the UNSC’s top training facility. They are about to experience Cryo sleep, in order to prepare for active duty. The new series will explore the Halo Universe deeper than ever before, and expand upon the backstory.

Here is a brief synopsis from the makers: At the Corbulo Academy of Military Science, cadets receive first-hand training with cryo-sleep, a technology necessary for deep-space travel to other worlds. But for one cadet, trying to get normal sleep the night before his first experience with cryo proves difficult when his head is filled with stories from his very creative room-mate.

See the new Cryo trailer below:

The series will launch on 5th October on Machinima Prime and on Halo Waypoint as a five episode series. The “Halo 4” Limited Edition game will also include an extended 90-minute version of the series. Halo 4 is set for a November 6th release, exclusively for Xbox 360.
