The TV series on Halo will have Master Chief as the protagonist, but apparently will stage some aspects of the protagonist of the series that you are not never seen in games so far, going to investigate still mysterious backstories.
In an interview with IGN, the head of the Halo Transmedia division, Kiki Wolfkill, he reported on the challenges of transporting a character like the Master Chief from video games to a profoundly different medium like a TV series.
“Probably the biggest challenge inadapt the game it’s the fact that the latter is designed to put you in Chief’s armor, “Wolfkill specifically explained,” while what we’re asking people with the show is to look at it from the outside. This way we can present a side of Chief that is simply not visible in the game. “
The characteristic of Master Chief is in fact the fact of creating an almost complete suture with the player, since it is a first-person shooter where, in fact, theuser becomes the protagonist, although there is still a substantial narrative base and the characters are quite developed.
The fact of being able to present the Master Chief constantly from the outside allowed to work more on the character, on his character and his reactions, regardless of the user’s action within him.
Last June we saw an alleged Master Chief image leaked from the TV series and later 10 more images from the Microsoft show in production.
