The first image from Ridley Scott’s Halo: Nightfall has appeared online, offering a look at the newest Spartan on the block Agent Locke.
The image was posted online by Variety (has since been taken down) and features actor Mike Colter (The Good Wife and The Following). It was originally believed that Colter would play a character called Marlow, but multiple sources have since confirmed that he will play the role of Spartan Agent Locke, who will also appear in Halo 5: Guardians on Xbox One.
Locke will play a key role in Halo 5, and Nightfall is designed to tell his origin story so players have an idea of who the character is when he appears in the game, according to 343 Industries studio head Bonnie Ross.
Halo: Nightfall will be included in Halo: The Master Chief Collection when it launches November 11 in North America and November 14 in Europe.
