Apparently, those who pre-order the Halo 5: Guardians Limited Edition bundle will also get the Halo: The Fall of Reach cartoon for free.
The cartoon aims to retell the events of how the Spartans program came to be, as well as its most infamous of candidates, John 117, became the galaxy saving Master Chief that we all know and love. It’s based off of the novel of the same name, which is an excellent read, and one I deem necessary for anyone that wants a little more backstory on Halo 5’s Kelly, Linda, and Fred, who make up the Chief’s Blue Team.
You can see what the animated project looks like above, and yes it should get you excited to learn more about the Chief’s origin story.
Halo 5: Guardians hits the Xbox One on October 27, 2015.
