Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn takes fans back to the beginning of the human and Covenant war, which leads to the events of Halo 4. Set against the backdrop of a United Nations Space Command (UNSC) military academy, Forward Unto Dawn follows a group of cadets who are training to be the next generation of soldiers in the UNSC’s ongoing war with insurrectionists in the outer colonial planets.
Among these cadets, Thomas Lasky struggles with his doubts about the war, and with the burden of expectations he may not be able to carry. As Lasky comes to terms with his potential as a military leader, the terrifying alien alliance known as the Covenant arrives and turns his world upside down. Inspired by the Master Chief, he must decide what it means to be a hero.
Halo fans who experience Lasky’s origin story in Forward Unto Dawn will be rewarded with special insights into the story of Halo 4 and the Halo Infinity Multiplayer experience. The story will unfold weekly through a series of five episodes, setting the stage for the worldwide launch of Halo 4 on 6th November.
