Halo season 2 is lower than a month away, and Paramount Plus has simply revealed the season’s newest trailer. Grasp Chief and the Spartans (glorious identify for a Halo cowl band, by the way in which) will return to face off in opposition to the Covenant on one of the vital essential places within the Halo universe: the planet Attain.
The trailer lets you realize instantly what the stakes are for Halo season 2, with a voiceover addressing the individuals of Attain. The voice — presumably belonging to Makee (Charlie Murphy), Grasp Chief’s girlfriend — continues, saying she would be the instrument of their extinction. We’re handled to gloomy scenes of Grasp Chief (Pablo Schreiber) outnumbered by covenant elites and Kai-125 (Kate Kennedy) watching Covenant orbital strikes destroy UNSC ships, whereas Captain Jacob Keyes (Danny Sapani) conjures up a gaggle of troopers to make their final stand.
If you realize Halo lore, you’re most likely getting goosebumps proper now. In the event you don’t, right here’s a prescription for Halo: Attain on Xbox, the Ship Hope trailer, and a duplicate of Halo: The Fall of Attain by Eric Nylund — take all three and name me within the morning.
Figuring out that the Halo live-action sequence takes fascinating liberties with the characters and tales, I’m slightly bummed we gained’t see the autumn of Attain by the heroism of Halo: Attain’s Noble Group or in Nylund’s e book. However the first season of Halo labored greatest when it let Spartans grapple with their humanity, then allow them to off the leash to punch some aliens to dying. I can consider no higher scenario suited to discover each of these concepts in full than throughout one of the vital important occasions in all of Halo lore.
Halo season 2 premieres February eighth on Paramount Plus.
