343i’s latest attempt to show us what daily life is like as a recruit in the Corbulo Academy is pretty darn poignant. Hell, it’s downright haunting. It also has us anxiously checking the calendar and counting the days until that Halo 4 release date on November 6th.
The newest entry in the Halo 4 Forward Unto Dawn web-series follows two UNSC recruits as they discuss cryo-sleep. I had always imagined it’d be quite chilly, like sleeping without a blanket in the middle of winter and being forced to deal with the frustration of not being able to reach for one. But as it turns out, a blonde recruit tells us that it’s actually much more somber, and that it in fact feels “like dying, and then waking up again.” A bit more frightening than a sleepless winter night.
Stay tuned for the next entry in the Forward Unto Dawn series as 343i methodically rolls them out in anticipation of November’s release of Halo 4. Watch the latest entry below:
