Halo 3 got it, Halo 3: ODST got it, now Halo: Reach‘s getting it. A live-action short, that is.
Microsoft’s announced “Birth of a Spartan,” a sixty-second short to be aired across sixteen US and UK television networks as of tomorrow, and North American theaters on the 27th. Welcometonobleteam.com will be airing it as well, starting 5.00 am GMT tomorrow morning.
There’s also going to be an extended, two and a half minute version; Gold members can grab it from Xbox Live this Wednesday.
What’s it about then? According to the announcement, Halo fans are in for “a stirring depiction of the transformation of Carter 259, the future leader of Noble Team in Halo: Reach, from an ordinary young man to a superhuman Spartan warrior”.
Quite a nice intro to the beta, which is kicking off in just 7 days now.
