Halo: Outpost Discovery Touring the US This Summer

By Rebecca Smith,
The Halo franchise has encompassed more than its games for a long time, and now fans in certain cities in the United States will be able to take part in a travelling fan experience known as Halo: Outpost Discovery. The experience is designed for people of all ages, and for both veterans and newcomers to the franchise with a variety of activities that will be offered while the event is in your city.

Halo: Outpost Discovery

Those attending the experience will be able to view exhibitions and displays, take part in an escape room and laser tag, train as a Spartan, play the latest games, and purchase exclusive memorabilia.

Hall of History

The beating heart of Halo: Outpost Discovery is the Hall of History, where you immerse yourself in the achievements and tribulations of humanity through a combination of informative graphics, artifacts, and tangible visuals pulled directly from the Halo franchise. Featuring everything from United Nations Space Command (UNSC) weapons and accessories, uniforms, an iconic to-scale Warthog vehicle, life-sized sculptures, and more. This exuberant, visceral tour of the Halo universe is the perfect introduction to your journey. In the Hall of History, new and experienced Halo fans alike find something to discover.

The Ring Experience

The Ring Experience lets attendees explore the story of the mysterious Halo Array through artifacts that leap off the levels and pages of some of your favorite Halo titles. At the center of the Ring Experience is a visually immersive, multi-projector, dome-based theatrical experience, featuring a never-before-seen exploration of a Halo ring, giving fans a brand-new appreciation for the sheer scale and magnitude of these ancient installations.

Covenant Escape

Explore a reclaimed section of a Covenant ship in this escape-room-style experience. Here, attendees aim to familiarize themselves on various high-risk boarding maneuvers and strategies commonly undertaken by the UNSC. As the challenges intensify, guests must work together to disable the Covenant technology as quickly as possible in order to set themselves free!

Combat Deck

Experience the rush of playing Halo in “real life” with this Halo-themed laser tag Combat Deck. Danger is present around every corner, as attendees and their squadmates must use their cunning and coordination to win this fast-paced, team-based, pulse-pounding activity. Two teams of up to twenty go head-to-head for a chance to claim victory in the ultimate “Big Team Battle” experience!

Training Grounds (VR)

Through the lens of virtual reality, teams of three will simulate what it takes to be a Spartan, in an immersive, Halo themed combat training environment.
