San Francisco-based agencytwofifteen created this wicked-cool trailer for the latest title in XBox’s hallowed Halo series, Halo: Reach. As fellow nerds will know well, the series predominantly revolves around the Spartan III super soldier, who is a lean, mean Covenant-killing machine. The game follows the trials and tribulations of Noble Team, an elite squad of Spartans. The trailer shows how Carter-259, the leader of Noble Team, came to be a Spartan. As you’ll see, being a super soldier is cool and all, except for the whole process of becoming a super soldier.
