Prolly tomorrow, but I'll keep an eye on HaloGAF--they've always been faster.

At first looking at it, I remembered it was identical to the one played during France v. England at Matchday 1 in Group D four days ago at Euro 2012.

Then I saw this HBO thread:

Huh.

The line "862..293.342.3487.2" looks a bit like the CEA Terminal dating system...

I also notice some familiarities to ILB, which looks like an HBO member also saw: http://carnage.bungie.org/haloforum/halo.forum.pl?read=1143605

Not much to talk about, but teaser in case you didn't see it:

Nice callout to Contact Harvest, at least. This just confuses me more and more about what timeframe that armor is supposed to be--doesn't look like Halo 4 armor, but what's he doing on what appears to be the wrecked Dawn?

Hello!

And yeah, you're entirely right that teasers usually don't have much bearing on the final product... but that doesn't mean fans won't pick it apart anyway :)

Pretty much none of the Halo trailers have been even slightly canonical and yet people always go nuts over every detail. I won't stoop to that level... so uh, how about that armour?

Well, but to be fair, the trailers have always been indicative of *something*--whether the basic scenario of the game, or small gameplay changes (AAs, the bubble shield from "Starry Night".)

But I don't know if that has any bearing on a film adaptation.

Hell, I'm pretty sure most of the "Star Trek" feature film trailers were just recycled shots from other movies :P

Picking it apart is the best part! I just meant that they way they made the teaser made it really a teaser.

Yes, most of the previous trailers are none canon but try to give glimpses of character development. Halo 3 one gave a background I the Spartans childhood or lack thereof and Reach gave us the sacrifice of Noble Six and the development/training/augmentation of Spartan IIIs. So pretty cool. Non-canon but gives us a little more oomph especially to Halo Game fans and probably bring them in to the rest of the universe.

So about that armor... I THINK its the Mark VI. The mini-series could probably have a small story arc for the change of armor. I don't know. Speculation, speculation. One of the reasons I love Halo. :)

*By the way, so far I'm really liking this community.

Yeah well their just marketing strategies at the end of the day. But at least Forward Unit Dawn will hopefully be a worthy piece of the universe and make people buy the game. Everyone wins.

  • No. There is more. But you are not worthy. Not yet
I'm guessing that the armor is going to be based on the Mk. IV variant seen in The Package from Halo Legends. It would make sense, as it would solidify that variant as more canonical and would theoretically increase the desire for people to buy any products that would be modeled off of it.

*ahem*
