Just a few days ago, a Halo 5: Guardians countdown site was launched, with a short video and the hashtag “HUNTtheTRUTH”. it turned out to be a site that will reveal the backstory of Master Chief.
Journalist Benjamin Giraud, who was at New Mombasa when MasterChief first appeared, unveils the truth. Every week, a new episode will be posted as part of the in-depth profile of Master Chief.
Episode 00 “PRIMER” was made available on Soundcloud and can be heard below.
What began as a high-profile hero story quickly turns into a full-blown investigation. Sources claim they know the “real Master Chief”: The boy, the soldier, the hero…the traitor? But who’s telling the truth?
