Get Your Location Ready for the New Halo TV Series

If your location already has a Halo®: Fireteam Raven™, it’s a great time to plan for the launch of the new Halo television series on Paramount+. The series launches on March 24 and in its adaptation for Paramount+, Halo will take place in the universe that first came to be in 2001 with the launch of Xbox®’s first “Halo” game. Dramatizing an epic 26th-century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant, Halo the series will weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure, and a richly imagined vision of the future.

The series stars Pablo Schreiber (“American Gods”) as the Master Chief, Spartan-117; Natascha McElhone (“Californication”) as Dr. Halsey, the brilliant, conflicted, and inscrutable creator of the Spartan super-soldiers; and Jen Taylor (“Halo” game series, RWBY) as Cortana, the most advanced AI in human history, and potentially the key to the survival of the human race. Additional stars include Bokeem Woodbine (“Fargo”), Shabana Azmi (“Fire”), Natasha Culzac (“The Witcher”), Olive Gray (“Half Moon Investigations”), Yerin Ha (“Reef Break”), Bentley Kalu (“Avengers: Age of Ultron”), Kate Kennedy (“Catastrophe”), Charlie Murphy (“Peaky Blinders”) and Danny Sapani (“Penny Dreadful”).

Get guests excited by incorporating your Halo games with events & promotions. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Host a Tournament

Increase sales, create a sense of community, and gain recognition by hosting a tournament featuring your Halo: Fireteam Raven machines. Hook up a TV so everyone can watch & cheer on. Winners can get fun Halo-themed prizes.

Offer Themed Food & Drinks

If your location includes a food or drink menu, take advantage of the opportunity by creating fun dishes and cocktails that will take guests on an adventure. Guests will love a themed drink with a limited-time special.

Host the Premiere (or Finale)

To go along with the themed food and drinks, your location could also host a watch party for the new Halo show’s premiere (or season finale) if you have the space. Generally, fans enjoy watching big premieres and finales with other fans exciting them. So, hosting one would surely draw a crowd.

As a pre-party or after-party, guests will be more likely to head over to the Halo: Fireteam Raven arcade.

Stage Photo Ops

Increase traffic on your social media accounts by creating fun photo op areas around your location. Get Halo cut-outs, ask customers to come in costume, or hire local talent.

Have guests tag your social media accounts or use a unique hashtag related to your location for a discount or coupon.

Halo®: Fireteam Raven

If your location does not include Halo: Fireteam Raven, it’s not too late to get one! Players will experience the iconic Halo universe like never before and can track performance and earn rewards by logging in to their Xbox Live account on the Halo: Fireteam Raven arcade cabinet.
