'Halo: Fireteam Raven' (Arcade) Announced - Trailer

Halo: Fireteam Raven is a cooperative arcade sci-fi shooting game.

For some gamers, their fondest and earliest memories are of long hours and countless quarters spent in a local arcade blasting through their favorite adventures. And for Halo fans, some of their best memories are of uncovering the secrets of an enigmatic ringworld and battling the twin threats of the Covenant and the Flood during their initial foray into Halo: Combat Evolved.

Halo: Fireteam Raven combines these two cherished memories into one brand-new unforgettable experience.

Set in the timeframe of Halo: Combat Evolved, this new arcade experience hot-drops players feet first into the boots of Fireteam Raven – a group of elite Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODST) on the surface of Alpha Halo fighting alongside the Master Chief and the rest of the UNSC as they try desperately to prevent the alien Covenant alliance from taking control of the ancient superweapon—Halo.

Halo: Fireteam Raven is housed in a massive, epic, and imposing coin-operated arcade machine designed and built by Raw Thrills and Play Mechanix in close collaboration with 343 Industries. An enormous 130-inch, 4k screen experience and four turret-mounted, multipurpose machine guns allow four players to fight Covenant troops, spacecraft, and vehicles, encounter the horrifying “Flood” infestation — and save the galaxy in frenetic, explosive combat. Scatter all this across a wide variety of epic landscapes and encounters in a cooperative (and competitive!) experience and you’ve got a Halo adventure like nothing else you’ve ever played in the franchise.

“We couldn’t be happier to announce this project and have had an absolute blast working with Eugene Jarvis – one of my personal heroes and inspirations – and the wonderful team of talented designers and creators at Raw Thrills,” said Kiki Wolfkill, Head of Halo Transmedia at 343 Industries. “Arcade games are a wholly different challenge compared to console and PC gaming, and we’ve learned a tremendous amount as we worked with Raw Thrills to make this happen.”

Play Halo: Fireteam Raven first this summer at Dave & Busters in the United States and Canada, and  expanding to more locations this Fall.
