Halo’s console-based playing experience is now brought to life in an immersive multiplayer platform, which enables four players to either play co-operatively or compete against each other. It’s Halo, but more: this latest instalment’s physical structure boasts a colossal 130-inch widescreen, 4K gameplay and 5.1 surround sound.
It adds a tangible element to the much-loved franchise, allowing individuals the opportunity to play right alongside Master Chief in the battle to ward off the enemy forces of the Covenant and the Flood infestation.
Halo: Fireteam Raven was created and fine-tuned by 343 Industries over several years and is set in the timeframe of 2001’s Halo: Combat Evolved game. Players will take on the roles of the Fireteam Raven – an elite group of Orbital Drop Shock Troopers.
