Halo 5: A Hero Falls

The iconic hero of the long-running Halo franchise has evidently fired his last laser, at least if a new TV commercial for the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians is to be believed. The spot is called Halo 5: A Hero Falls, and it shows the entire world reacting to Master Chief’s unexpected death.

The spot was first seen over the weekend during NBC’s Sunday Night Football, but if you missed Halo 5: A Hero Falls and are interested in such things, the commercial is now available to see online. It’s a surprisingly atmospheric and mature scene for a video game commercial, which just goes to show how much the form has changed over the years.

You can watch the Halo 5: A Hero Falls commercial below, provided your poor heart can handle it. For more in advance of the game’s upcoming October 27th release date, just check out its official site right here.
