The first episode of the Halo 4 live-action tie-in series Forward Unto Dawn has gone live and is now up to view.

Tracing the origins of the Human/Covenant war, we follow cadet Thomas Lasky as he makes his way  through the Corbulo Academy of Military Science. Watch the video above and let us know what you think on Twitter. Personally, we are stoked that we get a little more Halo mythology to chew on while we wait for the November release of Halo 4.
