Transcript[edit]

GAME ENGINE FOOTAGE

Warning message is shown thoughout the Pelican Echo 216. While the Pelican repeats "Warning".

  • Pelican warning system: "Warning. Warning. Warning. Warning. Warning. Warning. Warning. Warning. Warning. Warning."

The Pelican shakes and the Pilot wakes up.

  • Pilot: Gasp
  • Pelican warning system: "Warning. Warning. Warning. Pressure building at lines four, seventeen, and thirty three. Pressure building at lines four, seventeen, and thirty three. Pressure building at lines four, sev…"

The pilot takes out two cards and inserts them into slots.

  • Pelican warning system: "Protocol accepted."

Pelican shakes again causing a breach.

  • Pelican warning system: "Breach detected."

The pilot goes to open the door to the cockpit while the warning system goes off.

  • Pelican warning system: "Breach detected. Breach detected. Breach detected. Breach detected. Breach detected. Breach detected. Breach detected."

The pilot gets though the door and goes to seal the breach, succeeding only to fall to the ground opening a crate with "Meal" rations in it and a device with a recording of a woman and the pilots daughter plays. The device has a ring that gets smaller, starting at Green, to Yellow, to Red.

  • Pelican warning system: "Breach contained. Breach contained."
  • Woman: "Daddy's listening. Can you say hi?"
  • Pilot's daughter: "Hi."
  • Woman: "And how big are you?"
  • Pilot's daughter: "How big are you?"
  • Woman: "Can you tell daddy how big you are? Are you sooo big?"
  • Pilot's daughter: "So big."
  • Woman: "Heh, can you sing?"
  • Pilot's daughter: "Twinkle, twinkle..."
  • Woman: "Good singing. How about 'I miss you'?"
  • Pilot's daughter: "Miss you."
  • Woman: "And 'I love you'."
  • Pilot's daughter: "I love you."

A timeskip happens and the pilot is a little older with a beard. He goes to pick up the device playing the recording.

  • Woman: "I love you daddy."
  • Pilot's daughter: "I love you daddy."
  • Woman: "And I can't wait to see you. Can you say 'see you'?"
  • Pilot's daughter: "See you."
  • Woman: "And then 'bye bye'."
  • Pilot's daughter: "Bye bye…"

The device dies as the pilot holds it close. The pilot tears up.

  • Pilot: Sad gasps

The Pelican cockpit lights up green as the warning system goes off.

  • Pelican warning system: "Signal detected. Signal detected. Tag designation friendly. Signal detected. Tag designation friendly. Signal detected. Tag designation friendly. Signal detected. Tag desig…"

The pilot runs to the cockpit, the pelican readouts looking over "Local Ref Zeta" and the readouts reading the tag designation as "S_117". The pilot flips a few switches and picks up a headset.

  • Pilot: "This is UNSC Pelican Echo 216. Can you hear me? This is UNS-"

The Pilot wipes the Pelican window to reveal John-117 floating in front of it in space near debris.

Time skip happens and the Pilot got John-117 onboard and hooked his MJOLNIR GEN3 up to the pelican.

  • Pilot: "Looks like the main power cells are fried. Armor shutdown, triggering survival mode. I'm going to try to override."

The pilot picks up two cables and puts them together causing a spark.

  • Pilot: "Okay, if you can hear me in there, I hope you're ready. Please don't die. Please don't die."

John-117's VISR activates and cycles though several processes. Note: Any "xxxxx.xxxxx.xxxxx.xxxxx.xxxxx" was a cycle of codes.

//BOOT COMPLETE.
  • Pilot: Hopeful gasps

The Pelican starts to light up again, and the pilot jumps up and down in excitement.

  • Pilot: "Yes! Yes! Yes! We're going home! Haha! Welcome back, Chief. I rerouted what little power I had into your suit."

The pilot walks towards the Chief to look over him.

  • Pilot: "Hmph, looks like there's a problem with the servos in your hands. Stay calm, you been out there awhile. I know I saw something in here to check your armor's diagnostics."

Chief looks at his hands, and looks at a chip with the AI serial number "CTN 0453-0". He proceeds to put it into his helmet. This makes a prompt appear on the VISR.

WEAPON CONTAINMENT DEVICE INSERTED
VERIFICATION ID [309-270-238]
> > AI NOT DETECTED < <
CONTINUE?

Chief proceeds to walk forward, disconnecting himself from the Pelican. This causes the pilot to be careful regarding him.

  • Pilot: "Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Easy there, big guy. You're not-"
  • John-117: "Status report."
  • Pilot: "Status report? What? There's something you need to see, Chief."

Chief walks to the cockpit of the Pelican. Outside the Pelican is a heavily damaged Halo Installation.

  • Pilot: "We lost. Lost everything. There's nothing left for us here. I don't even know where here is."

The pelican gets hit by a EMP-like shock, causing systems to go into flux.

  • Pilot: "No, no no no! Not them! Not again! We need to run!"
  • John-117: "No, we need to fight."

John grabs an assault rifle and proceeds to walk into the cargo bay of the Pelican. The pilot closes the cockpit door

  • John-117: "Get ready."

The pilot opens the cargo bay door to a bright light, and Chief runs into it.

The music intensifies and the Halo Theme plays.

Halo Infinite
Holiday 2020

John is walking in a room with a hologram of the damaged Halo ring, while Cortana says a line of dialogue about Chief.

  • Cortana (narration): "I chose you because you were special."

Chief removes the chip in his helmet, and walks into a blue light to reconnect.[1]

  • Cortana (narration): "I knew we would be perfect together, and I was right."

Secret Audio[edit]

HIDH - Secret Audio

SoundQuote.png
Trouble with the audio sample?

During the VISR boot up sequence, a QR code can be briefly seen that reads http://aka.ms/LX0.0082711LY-0.0251671LZ0.0000085. This link directs users to the link https://content.halocdn.com/media/Default/home/343/lx0.0082711ly-0.0251671lz0.0000085-99ddb8f420eb4372922fa21859a2b8ca.mp3; an audio file on Halo Waypoint depicting the voice of Cortana.

  • Cortana: "This? This is part of me! I don't know why? I don't know how? But it is me!"

Differences from the final game[edit]

The Discover Hope trailer incorporates two scenes from the final game: The opening cutscene of Warship Gbraakon, and the scene of the Chief reuniting with The Weapon in Foundation. There are multiple differences between the iterations of these scenes featured in both the trailer and the final game.

  • The Pelican's warning system has a slightly different voice in the final game.
  • Echo 216's family is featured in a different holographic recording, with the final version visibly featuring both his wife and daughter instead of solely his wife. The conversation between his wife and daughter is also different in both versions.
  • The Chief is depicted without the Grappleshot. In the final game, he is retrieved from space with the Grappleshot half-deployed, and the Chief retracts its dart back into the device while examining his left hand.
  • The Chief's armor is cleaner and less visibly damaged than the model used in the final game.
  • In the final game, there is a short gameplay section between "I rerouted what little power I had into your suit" and "Hmph, looks like there's a problem with the servos in your hands". The Pilot runs a procedure to fix the Mjolnir armor's calibration matrix, requiring the player to follow a flashlight to configure their controls. This sequence is absent in the trailer.
  • When the Pelican is caught in the Gbraakon's EMP-like blast, yellow arcs of electricity surge through the ship. This effect is absent in the final game.
  • In Discover Hope the Chief grabs an Assault Rifle from a rack in the Pelican's cockpit, whereas in the final game he asks the Pilot for a weapon, who gives him a Sidekick in response.
  • The Chief and the Pilot's dialogue after "We need to run!" is completely different between both versions.
  • The Chief opens the Pelican's bay doors manually in the final game, whereas the Pilot appears to remotely open them for the Chief in the trailer.
  • The Chief walking towards the Weapon's pedestal occurs during gameplay, instead of during a cutscene.

Trivia[edit]

  • The trailer had several codes for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate hidden in the VISR boot up screen. All of these codes have since been redeemed.
  • There is a binary string hidden in the VISR boot up that reads 01101111 01101000 00100000 01101000 01100101 01111001. The binary translates to the message "oh hey".
