The very first piece of expanded universe content released to coincide with the launch of Halo: Combat Evolved and the original Xbox was a novel titled Halo: The Fall of Reach.

The book told the backstory of Master Chief Petty Officer JOHN-117, better known to fans of the Halo franchise as the Master Chief, the hero of Halo.  It starts with the creation of the SPARTAN-II program and details the events leading up to the first Halo game.

This weekend, 343 Industries announced that they are going to re-release this epic story as an animated feature.  If you haven’t read this amazing story you should certainly give this animated feature a look, as many of the book’s characters will be making their first game appearances in the next Halo game.

Take a look at the first official trailer below.  Its release is timed to coincide with the launch of Halo 5: Guardians this October.

Halo: The Fall of Reach is being released exclusively through the Halo Channel to anyone who purchases the Limited Edition or Limited Collector’s Edition of Halo 5: Guardians.  Halo 5: Guardians is coming October 2015 exclusively to the Xbox One.

Earlier this week, 343 Industries produced a new behind the scenes documentary for Halo 5: Guardians to coincide with the San Diego Comic Con.

The ViDoc, called A Hero Reborn, was released exclusively on the Halo Channel app, but (for those who don’t have access to the app) you can check out a brief teaser for the documentary below.

It’s nice to see some behind the scenes information about the game’s single player campaign getting released. The other documentary series 343 Industries has been working on, called The Sprint, focused strictly on multiplayer development.

The Halo Channel app is currently available free of charge on Xbox One, Android, and iOS platforms. It can also be downloaded for free on Windows 8 PCs through the Windows 8 digital app store.  It will be released on Windows Phones after the release of Windows Phone 10.
