In the console war, many argue that the PlayStation has such rough exclusive titles that it’s not even worth thinking about buying an Xbox. Yet Microsoft also has franchises like Forza Horizon, Gears of War or Halo, which are at least as much of a system seller title as, say, a Marvel’s Spider-Man.
In recent years, there have been attempts to adapt many video games to the small screen with more or less success. However, the work on the sci-fi FPS TV series, Shalo, is badly stuck. The series, which originally debuted at Showtime in 2015, focuses on the legendary military hero, Master Chief. The character is played by the star of the American gods, Pablo Schreiber. The crew has changed a lot, with two showrunners leaving, but one of the biggest names, Steven Spielberg, the executive producer, with Amblin Television, has stood by processing the video game.
The vase of the series remained the same as it was announced in 2013:
a ten-part series covering the XXVI. century guide. Sci-fi tells the story of a war between humanity and an alliance of alien beings, the Covenant, through a whole new story.
The Halo series – which will not end up on Showtime, but on the offer of the streaming service provider Paramount + – has been shot in several locations in Hungary, in Budapest and Győr. Celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the Xbox, the first hilarious preview of the TV version was meant to be a huge bang. But thanks to a buck, the video was leaked showing Master Chief and his armor, and the voice of the artificial intelligence Cortana that helped him.
In the past, they tried to plant the world of Halo in a live-action environment with commercials and web series, but these attempts were mixed. The TV series coming to Paramount + so the most ambitious enterprise to date.
Halo fans are having a good time now, with the free multiplayer mode of Halo Infinite starting on November 15th. The version, still known as beta, can be tested on PC, Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One. Most reviews said it went very well, so it’s worth giving it a chance before Halo Infinite officially hits on December 8th.
Halo Infinite will also be available in the Xbox Game Pass on the day the final version is released, similar to Microsoft’s other big bang in the fall, Forza Horizon 5.
