Halo: Outpost Discovery is an upcoming Halo fan experience coming to a city near you this summer, but is there a chance that it may actually contain hints to Halo Infinite and its story?
Earlier last week, a brand new type of Halo experience was revealed, dubbed “Halo: Outpost Discovery.” Throughout the summer of 2019, 343 Industries is teaming up with Herschend Live and touring the United States, bringing a fully live and immersive, interactive Halo event to five different cities for a limited time. Make sure to check out the above link for more information if you’re planning on going — I’ll be going to the Chicago event, myself.
However, something particularly interesting about Halo: Outpost Discovery is that there are reasons to believe it is, in some way, related to the next upcoming Halo game, Halo Infinite. Though we know nothing concrete about Halo Infinite’s story, we do know it’s likely the game takes place on the Halo ring “Zeta Halo” based on details I and others dissected from Infinite’s reveal trailer. Here’s why I believe that that Halo: Outpost Discovery will tie back into those details, as well as why one of the new characters it introduces may be very important to the Master Chief himself.
Be warned: Spoilers for Halo 5: Guardians beyond this point.
