POSTED 08 Feb 2019 . BY Andy Knaggs
A touring fan experience based on the science fiction franchise Halo is due to call at five US cities this summer, giving fans a chance to experience immersive and interactive “in-universe” encounters.

Microsoft’s Halo: Outpost Discovery attraction will fill some 300,000sq ft (91,440sq m) of play space, featuring VR and multi-player laser tag games, a Halo Ring exploration, an iconic, to-scale Warthog vehicle, escape from a Covenant ship, more than 200 video game stations, and exclusive Halo gear.



The tour begins in Orlando from 5 to 7 July, moving on to Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston and closing in Anaheim from 30 August to 1 September. Each stop on the tour lasts for a weekend. Tickets are on sale starting at US$55 (€48, £42).

On a dedicated website for the experience, the following description is offered: “Whether you’re a Halo veteran or brand new to the franchise, Halo: Outpost Discovery offers experiences designed with everyone in mind. From deep dives into the Halo backstory and interactive museum attractions, to hands-on gameplay and unique, exclusive shopping opportunities, this first-of-its-kind authentic experience is guaranteed to delight the whole family.”

The website (www.halooutpostdiscovery.com) contains a great deal more information, as well as the facility to purchase tickets and book hotel accommodation.

The full list of dates is as follows:

5-7 July: Orlando
19-21 July: Philadelphia
2-4 August: Chicago
16-18 August: Houston
30 August-1 September: Anaheim
