Over last week, a teaser website popped up, teasing something in relation to Halo 5: Guardians. At the time, no details were given about what the website was for. The website simply provided a countdown, and presented the phrase "Hunt the Truth." Since then, the countdown has reached zero, and we now have access to what seems to be the first in a series of podcasts related to the story of the Halo universe.
Instead of getting a team of developers to delve into the story of Halo, the podcast plays a transcript from a fictional war journalist, named Ben Giraud. In the first episode, Giraud goes a little bit into how the Master Chief has saved humanity, and how he is a living legend.
Throughout the first episodic podcast, Giraud goes on to explain his quest to write the ultimate biography of the Master Chief, however along the way, he started to find a series of concerning details about the Chief.
Because of these new details, Giraud has now set out to learn the truth of Spartan 117, and it looks as if these new podcasts will take us with him on his journey.
Straight off the bat, this podcast screams excitement, and I, as a big Halo fan, am very interested about how this episodic podcast could unravel. So far, we know very little about the story of Halo 5: Guardians, but it looks like it could delve a lot deeper into the lore of the Halo universe than we first thought.
Halo 5: Guardians will be released later this year during the Holiday season.
