Greg Bear’s (Eon, The Forge of God) Forerunner Saga continues today with the release of Halo: Primordium, the second release in the ongoing series that delves deeper into the universe before the time of Master Chief. Published by Tor Books, Primordium follows Cryptum in further detailing the events leading up to the games. After the destruction of the Forerunner empire, two humans find themselves on a damaged Halo and in the sights of a being claiming to be the Last Precursor.
Bear will also be touring for the book’s launch. Readers eager to hear the latest about the Forerunner Saga can check out his full tour schedule below.
Halo: Primordium publishes at an exciting time for Halo fans, as the Master Chief is set to make his triumphant return in “Halo 4,” the next blockbuster installment in the Xbox 360 franchise that begins all-new Halo trilogy, set to release in 2012. As with Halo: Cryptum before it, Halo: Primordium continues to expand Halo’s universe and lays the foundation for many new discoveries to come. “As we head into the launch year for Halo 4, more and more fans are begging for answers to a lot of questions. In Primordium, Greg answers those, and a bunch you never even thought to ask and introduces some new mysteries that will have a resounding and lasting effect on the Halo universe.” said Frank O’Connor, Franchise Development Director at 343 Industries.
