Microsoft's social hub for all things Halo-related successfully launched yesterday, and the new animated show "Halo Legends" will kick off tomorrow.
Halo Waypoint is being dubbed "the new virtual home for all things Halo." Launched yesterday as part of the Xbox Live service, Waypoint will serve as a social hub for Halo players, as well as a place to go for daily updates of Halo-related content. Microsoft promises "daily updates of fresh, exciting content such as developer interviews, trailers and screenshots, exclusive video footage, community activities and the latest Halo news."
Halo Waypoint live, Halo Legends starts tomorrow
First among these "fresh, exciting" pieces of content will be the new anime show "Halo Legends." Set to be distributed in early 2010 by Warner Home Video, the anthology of anime short films will tell all-new stories in the Halo saga. Tomorrow (11/7) a preview episode of the new show, "The Babysitter" will be available through Waypoint and will be followed a week later by behind-the-scenes footage and a "making of" special. The show, which has been created by a collaboration between renowned anime studio STUDIO4*C and Microsoft's internal Halo team 343 Industries, follows the story of a group of ODST's who must integrate a Spartan sniper into their strike team. The first episode deals with a mission to assassinate a Covenant Prophet, and the story tackles the tension between the Spartans and the ODST's.
