Watch: Halo Wars 2 Trailer

In addition to the new Halo 5 trailer, Microsoft released a trailer for Halo Wars 2 at Gamescom, which can be viewed above.

Halo Wars 2 is an exciting new strategy game packed with fast-paced action, massive battles, and an all-new Halo story, coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 in fall of 2016.

The original Halo Wars is described as follows:

Halo Wars is the best selling real-time strategy game on any current generation console.

Set in the year 2525, “Halo Wars” takes players on a perilous journey through the famed “Halo” universe. As players take the command seat in the early, epic battles between the UNSC and Covenant, they will begin to unravel events 20 years before “Halo: Combat Evolved” that shaped the franchise into what it is today.

You are a member of the crew aboard the Spirit of Fire, a Phoenix-class colony ship converted for UNSC military use. Your ship has journeyed to the planet Harvest, where you’ve stumbled upon a mysterious ancient artifact. But what you are about to encounter will open the floodgates to conflict unlike anything you have ever seen. The sinister Covenant, an alien coalition set on obliterating humanity, has attacked Harvest, and an age of epic warfare is about to begin.

In this stunning prequel to the Halo series, you will have the opportunity to experience the early battles between the UNSC and the Covenant that set the stage for the far-reaching conflict that defines the Halo saga. Halo Wars exposes you to an all-new dimension of the legendary conflict with groundbreaking strategic gameplay that places you in command of an arsenal of UNSC units. Crush the Covenant forces with your tactical brilliance and superior command, and turn the tide of battle with incredible Leaders possessing elite skills. Join up to five friends for thrilling new gameplay via the New Xbox Experience as you command either the UNSC or Covenant forces, pitting Warthogs and Scorpions against Grunts, Elites, Ghosts and Scarabs in battles that will define an age.

Neill Blomkamp Teases The Larke

Neill Blomkamp has released a pair of teaser images for something titled “The Larke.”

Blomkamp took to his Instagram and shared the following image, which also reveals “The Larke” has an Instagram page of its own featuring another image reminiscient of a video game – perhaps Destiny or Halo.

It’s presently unknown what “The Larke” is all about, though Neill Blomkamp was at one time attached to direct a Halo movie.

Neill Blomkamp’s next film is a new Alien movie; however, we are guessing “The Larke” isn’t involved and is a separate project.

 

I might not be able to provide all the answers but I will do my best.

Luke Cage Series Is Geared Toward Adults Says Mike Colter

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:19482:]]

While speaking about the Halo series, Mike Colter lets it be known the new Luke Cage Marvel Netflix series is being aimed at adults.

“It’s geared towards an adult audience, which is something that will be different from the Marvel Cinematic Universe that you’ve seen before on the big screen,” Mike Colter told IGN.

Colter, who plays Locke in the Halo: Nightfall series, continues with mention how excited he is to play the role.

“I’m excited about playing the character because I’ve read the comic books,” Colter said. “They’re very detailed, gritty; the world they’ve written in the comic books is very clear. Marvel does a fantastic job about bringing human stories – because you’re telling big stories with a heart at the center of it – and that’s what connects all of the characters to our audience members. Audience members have to feel connected with these characters, to make them relate to the character’s situations and that’s what you see with all of the Marvel characters.”

Colter will first be appearing in the Jessica Jones series before Luke Cage launches, and Colter says he is happy with what he sees.

 “What I’m most excited about is touching on what makes him tick. It feels good to get a character that has such a story, background, and history,” Colter offered. “And when I look at the scripts, I’m really pleased with it because it’s a slow-burn; there’s nothing happening really fast that gets ahead of itself. I’m really with where they’re taking it and how they’re developing the characters, because it’s really cool and it’s geared towards an adult audience, which is something that will be different from the Marvel Cinematic Universe you’ve seen before on the big screen.”

Colter also offers the following about the series approach, which will be different than some of the Marvel movies.

“We have a more gritty, focused story on our heroes and characters that live in New York City, but it’s geared towards a more adult audience and I think that’s the thing about the series that will be different.”

Daredevil premiers on April 10th which launches the Marvel Netflix shows.
