Though it's been a few years since Halo 5: Guardians released, Master Chief and the Halo franchise remain Microsoft's most recognizable property. We're likely still a ways from Halo: Infinite, which was announced at E3 2018, but Microsoft is hoping to keep fans engaged through the new Halo: Outpost Discovery tour. 

The tour is set to come to five American cities this summer, bringing more than 300,000 square feet of activities for aspiring Spartans. Attendees can expect to explore a Halo Ring, see a real-life Warthog, experience some laser tag TDM, and engage in in-universe encounters via an innovative VR attraction. Halo: Outpost Discovery also features themed panels, creator and special guest meet-and-greets, and various community events built around subjects like livestreaming and cosplay. In addition, hundreds of game stations will allow fans to enjoy the latest Xbox game releases.

If you're a hardcore Halo fan, check the dates of the tour below and begin planning your summer vacation.

  • July 5 - 7 – Orlando, FL
  • July 19 - 21 – Philadelphia, PA
  • August 2 - 4 – Chicago, IL
  • August 16 - 18 – Houston, TX
  • August 30 - September 1 – Anaheim, CA

If you're not close to one of the cities, don't fret, as this is being billed as the first year of the tour, meaning it's likely to expand to more cities next time. For more, head to the official Halo: Outpost Discovery website
