Last month, Microsoft confirmed that its upcoming live-action series, Halo: Nightfall, will tell the story of the so-called 'mystery Spartan' known as Agent Locke. The character will have a "key role" in Halo 5: Guardians, the next game in the franchise, coming in 2015.
With Ridley Scott producing the series, many are eagerly awaiting its arrival, and for those that just can't wait to find out more, there will be an opportunity to get more info later this month. Major Nelson (aka Microsoft's Larry Hryb) has revealed that attendees at Comic-Con International: San Diego - the massive convention for all things related to sci-fi, fantasy, comics, video games and all-round pop culture goodness - will get a first look at Nightfall on July 24.
Key cast and crew that worked on the series will be there for a "deep-dive" into Nightfall, where some of the first details about the series, its story and its production will be revealed. There will also be a panel at Comic-Con discussing the upcoming Halo: Master Chief Collection, with many of those from 343 Industries involved in its creation on hand to discuss some of the challenges they faced in remastering the older titles in the series.
That won't be Microsoft's only presence at Comic-Con either, with a further two interactive panels available - one discussing Sunset Overdrive, and the other giving a behind the scenes look into the creation of the Xbox Originals documentary that followed those attempting to locate the ET Atari video games buried in New Mexico.
You can also check out the Xbox booth and Xbox lounge, where you'll be able to play a tonne of games heading to the Xbox One later this year. For more details on Microsoft's Comic-Con plans, hit the source link below.
