My understanding of Halo 4 is we have actually get to see a little more about what it is, for this guy, to lived the life he has lived. Faced the challenges he has faced. And what that has actually done to him or what that has changed him.
The hero he was framed much, but I…I’m a man with flaws. Misses his home, misses his friends, missed his colleagues, but he knows this is what he needs do when he is involved in something greater than just himself.
Microsoft’s Halo franchise will be reappearing at E3 2014, though it’s unsure whether Halo 5 will be showcased or Halo 2 Anniversary. The latter has been pegged to release later this year while the former comes out next year. There hasn’t been much information on either title, except bits and snippets about arguably the biggest Xbox One exclusive out there.
According to her IMDB profile, and the casting list on the game’s page, it seems that Jenna Berman, who played Spartan-II soldier Kelly-087 in Halo: Forward Unto Dawn, will reportedly be reprising her role. You can take this with a grain of salt but for the most part, it seems that most fans are stoked about her return.
We do know that Steve Downes will be playing Master Chief again, so it’s likely the IMDB listing is correct. More information on the future of the Halo franchise will be showcased at E3 so stay tuned and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
This rumor has been circulating for a little while now, and it’s one that I really have a hard time having any faith in it being based in any kind of fact/credibility. It seems highly unlikely that IMDB would’ve somehow gotten a hold of casting information for Halo 5 when there has been next to no official word whatsoever about it (or even if the next Halo game slated for release is in fact a main title game, as the OP mentioned).
The actors that played the members of Blue Team in ‘Forward Unto Dawn’ simply seem way to young to be playing the same characters circa 2558 AD - as Kelly-087 and Fred-104 should be in their mid to late forties. Not to mention there is no one listed as playing Linda-058 (who really should be there if Kelly and Fred are), and also the actor they have listed as playing the female Forerunner Chant-to-Green is clearly a man. So yeah, in my opinion all the info on that IMDB page was simply cobbled together from nothing but guesswork and old rumors. But I suppose we will indeed have to wait until E3 to know for sure…
That said though, there is nothing in the world I want more than for Kelly-087 to be a major character in the next Halo games. And, if she actually does end up being so, no matter who she’s played by I just hope they cast someone who can capture all the facets of Kelly’s character - her wit, her strength, and her loyalty to the people she cares about, just to name a few - that will endear her to gamers that may not know her as well as others who’ve already seen her in action in the Halo Extended Universe.
News: Alien Director Ridley Scott to Create Halo “Digital Feature” - IGN
The man behind Alien and Blade Runner Ridley Scott will produce a Halo “digital feature” for Microsoft.
Obviously it’s way too early to glean anything concrete from this news, but the statement that this new project is about “a surgically-enhanced super soldier who is not Master Chief” piques my interest. Does this mean we’ll finally be seeing something starring one (or possibly more) of the other Spartan-IIs of Blue Team? I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed…
Spartan-117 & Spartan-087
Kelly looked up at the sky as the colors blended perfectly from orange, to pink, and then to purple. She’d seen sunsets on many different planets now, and she’d thought them all lovely in their own ways; but in her opinion none of them could compare to the beauty of the sunsets here on Reach. She shivered slightly as a gust of wind rushed over the hill and chilled her skin. The arm that was wrapped around her waist pulled her a little closer to the man beside her, trying to shield her from the breeze and share warmth. “It’s beautiful, isn’t it?” she asked.
friendly reminder that Kelly-087 is the only person that John-117 has ever, in his own words, described as being beautiful (◡‿◡✿)
John has blue ones with rabbits on.
Kelly has blue eagles on her pjs.
Sam only has bottoms.
Linda steals shirts from every one.
Fred thinks they are all mad and sleeps with no pyjamas.
…John and Kelly wearing jammies with each other’s symbols on them is my new favorite headcanon.
