The trailer is a short cinematic clip showing a green landscape in what seems to be an aftermath of some great war. A new ecosystem of beasts and nature completely takes over the world left behind by men as we don't see any of them. While a squad of three soldiers approaches with one of their wounded companion, we see Master Chief's iconic helm in his hand in frame. Then he plugged Cortana into the back of his helmet and then it slowly cuts into the title card.

Even though they previously hinted of making a comeback with Halo series, both developer 343 Industries and Microsoft Studios has been quite about when they are going to make a show on it for some time. Thankfully, it is finally returning to its former glory and will establish that once it finally releases. Aside from slightly changing their art style and color patterns, the game has moved to a newer Slipspace Engine this time and players get to spend more time with their favorite green Spartan.

In a time when Microsoft is desperately in need for some exclusive games for their consoles to survive the market competition as they are being manhandled by Sony and ridiculed by fans, an exclusive Xbox line-up like Halo can probably turn the table for them. So, the upcoming title is definitely a breath of fresh air in this time of crisis for the publisher. The story of the game centers around Master Chief but this teaser was to actually demonstrate their powerful new game engine.
