Animated film Halo: The Fall Of Reach is available to buy today, according to a post on Microsoft’s Xbox Wire blog. If the name sounds familiar, that’s probably because it’s a direct adaptation of the novel of the same name, written Eric Nylund.
Just like its inspiration, Microsoft says the film “explores the dramatic origins and intrigue behind the SPARTAN program” and “reveals the events that brought Master Chief and Blue Team together.”
See the official announcement below for more:
Starting today, the animated feature, Halo: The Fall of Reach, is available on Blu-ray, DVD and various video on demand (VOD) providers, such as the Halo Channel, Microsoft Movies & TV, iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, and more.
Adapted from the beloved Eric Nylund novel of the same name, this animated feature explores the dramatic origins and intrigue behind the SPARTAN program that propelled characters like the Master Chief and Dr. Catherine Haley into the pantheon of Halo lore. The story reveals the events that brought Master Chief and Blue Team together, including their Spartan training and their daring mission to strike back at the Covenant during the first days of the deadly alien invasion.
