Cinematic Spaces: Research - Halo Series

Master Chief's Combat Suit

Halo is a multi-billion dollar science fiction video game franchise. The series centers on an interstellar war between humanity and an alliance of aliens known as the Covenant. Many of the games are based on the experiences of Master Chief who is cybernetically enhanced human super-soldier and his artificial intelligence (AI) companion called Cortana.

I have not played any of the games seriously, apart from Halo 3 for no longer than an hour. However the suits that these intergalactic soldiers use appear very similar to the Dead Space Trilogy and could be very influential.

I happened to notice these two particular Halo armor suits which have some similarity to traditional diving outfits. The colours work and the helmets do appear to allow the head to move freely inside. Although far too bulky and likely heavy to be suitable for underwater endeavours, however they are very futuristic.
