Third Halo Legends Preview Episode on Xbox LIVE
(NewDesignWorld Press Release Center) -- The Halo universe's most iconic figure embarks on a harrowing mission in the third preview episode of the epic anime saga, Halo Legends. Created by Casio Entertainment and visionary director Shinji Aramaki, part one of "The Package" will be available exclusively on Halo Waypoint for only 24 hours this Saturday, December 5.
The story follows Master Chief and four specially selected Spartans as they launch out on a stealth cruiser into the heart of a massive Covenant fleet in a bid to recover a valuable intelligence asset.
This episode will prove that Spartans are just as adept fighting in zero-G and piloting never-before-seen light attack vehicles as they are on the ground. Once Master Chief locates the target he and the remaining Spartans blast their way on board, where the action gets hand-to-hand as they fight through an army of Covenant troops in order to recover the most important Human intelligence resource there is.
"The Package" will be previewed in two parts, with the conclusion of the story scheduled for Saturday, December 12. Tune in for a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of "The Package" on Saturday, December 19, in which Aramaki and his team recount their work on Halo Legends.
