xbox Series X – You Can Finally Take Orders From Master Chief
An update on Xbox Wire went into detail about what gamers can expect when they load up the Master Chief experience on Waze. While the announcement notes that the new driving directions will not take into account the Warthog’s off-road capabilities or the Banshee’s anti-gravity pads, it does intend to offer a safe driving experience with some heavy “Halo” flavor.
On Xbox Wire, fans can find a clip of Master Chief preparing a driver for a trip that may have galactic consequences, or they can hear Escharium complain about their second biggest pet peeve: heavy traffic. While Waze has partnered with prominent brands before, such as when the app added Morgan Freeman’s voice (via Refinery29) to its navigation roster ahead of the release of “London Has Fallen,” Xbox Wire notes that this is the first videogame cross-promotion that the company has set up.
Master Chief fans can add the new Waze partnership to the list of good omens that “Halo: Infinite” is on track for its still-unannounced late 2021 release date. The next chapter in the Xbox’s premier franchise faced significant delays that kept it from launching alongside the Xbox Series X|S, but it made everyone jealous at E3 and the recent tech preview for Halo Insiders make it look like the game is closer than ever.
