Following its release on Machinima last year, Microsoft has debuted a new trailer for the Blu-ray and DVD release of Halo: Nightfall, arriving March 17. The Blu-ray will be priced at $24.99 SRP, with the DVD priced at $20.99, with over 35-minutes of behind-the-scenes footage. The Blu-ray will also include an extra 45 minutes of "second story" content, with the DVD only including 17 minutes of "second story" material.
Halo: Nightfall tells the personal story of Jameson Locke (Mike Colter), 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.
Halo: Nightfall was split into five episodes, but fans can watch the full feature-length version on Blu-ray and DVD. Ridley Scott and David Zucker executive produced Halo: Nightfall, which was directed by Sergio Mimica-Gezzan and written by Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring. Take a look at the trailer below, along with the Blu-ray and DVD artwork.
