Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn, 343 Industries' web series seeking to humanize the war games of the Halo franchise, addresses its young soldiers' loss of innocence in a new vignette released today.

In the video below, two trainees neck-deep in a game of Capture the Flag reminisce about their childhoods – a time where Capture the Flag had less agonizing consequences. As children, the kind of terror that comes with the sound of snapping twigs and faint breathing seems not as gripping when, dressed in armor, you enter the battlefield with your life at stake.

Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn will premiere on October 5th on Machinima, followed by Halo 4 launching exclusively for Xbox 360 on November 6th.
