A new Halo novel will explore the backstory of Gunnery Sergeant Edward Buck.


Halo: New Blood is a digital-first short novel launching on March 2.

The 60,000 word novel was penned by Matt Forbeck, an award-winning author of many licensed fantasy and sci-fi publications.

It’s an all-new story, but fans of Halo 3: ODST will be familiar with some of the characters and situations.

If you’re keen to know more there’s an interview with Forbeck on Halo Waypoint.
