Waze Updated With Master Chief Driving Directions Ahead of ‘Halo Infinite’ Release on Xbox
Google’s Waze service has teamed up with Microsoft for a Halo-themed takeover where Master Chief will give you driving directions in real life to help you get to where you’re going.
According to a new Medium post from Waze, Microsoft and 343 Industries have partnered with the company to bring the Master Chief and Escharum, his Banished foil in Halo Infinite’s upcoming story campaign, to the navigation app.
You can drive with Master Chief and have your real car visualized as a Warthog, or you can ride with Escharum the Banished war chief giving you directions as your car is displayed as a Ghost:
Join the UNSC and the legendary Master Chief to help humanity tackle every obstacle thrown at them — whether it’s an interstellar alliance or rush hour traffic. Spartan-117 has dismantled the Covenant, turned the tide against the Flood, and battled the Banished — with that kind of experience in your corner, the mission of successfully making that dinner date will be no problem. Of course, having an all-terrain terror like the Warthog doesn’t hurt either.
Or perhaps you like to be on the rebellious side? For those that want to take control of their own fate — and the road ahead — look no further than the Banished war chief, Escharum. This brutal warrior will be there to lead your Ghost into uncharted territory and ensure victory — and a swift and safe arrival — at any cost.
The update is available from today through this link, or you can open the Waze app, head to “My Waze,” and select the Halo banner.
It’s available in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese, and the update is available for a limited time only.
