'Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn' sits you in the passenger seat on a Warthog joyride

The latest vignette for "Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn" buckles players into the passenger seat for a joyride in one of the series' signature Warthogs.

The Warthog, the signature vehicle of the Halo series, is a powerful machine both in war and sport, as demonstrated by an enthusiastic young soldier in the latest vignette for Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn.

"This isn't your standard M12," the soldier tells the cameraman as he revs the engine and speeds off through the forest. For 48 seconds, viewers get a first-hand look at what it's like behind the wheel of these rough-and-tumble vehicles, the staple of the series' mechanized infantry.

The Warthogs in Forward Unto Dawn hail from the craftsman at special effects company Weta Workshop, the studio behind the creatures and sets of The Lord of the Rings and Chronicles of Narnia films.

Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn is a web series focusing on the human side of Halo's wars. The series will debut on MachinimaPrime and Halo Waypoint on October 5th and continue up to the release of Halo 4 on November 6th.
