Just a few days ago, a Halo 5: Guardians countdown site was launched that promised something Sunday night. The only clue we had was a short teaser video and the hashtag “HUNTtheTRUTH” That something has happened and has turned out to be a site that will unravel the backstory of Master Chief.
The site is spearheaded by fictional journalist Benjamin Giraud who was at New Mombasa when Master Chief first appeared to combat the Covenant attack.
Every week, a new episode will be posted as part of the in-depth profile of Master Chief.
Episode 00 “PRIMER” was just posted on Soundcloud and can be heard below. It’s unclear whether or not the rest of the story will be heard on Soundcloud or will be a cross-multimedia experience on other channels such as YouTube.
All signs point to a November launch for the game.
Head over here to check out the site or skip right to the first episode below:
