Halo: Outpost Discovery Ring Experience Trailer June 20, 2019

I know we talked about Halo: Outpost Discovery earlier today, but 343 Industries revealed a preview of a second experience that will be at the event and we wanted to highlight it.

The Ring Experience intends to be a way for attendees to experience what it is like to live on a Halo ring without actually having to go there. Initial concept art made this appear as it would be delivered by being projected onto a domed screen (similar to OMNIMAX) and won’t be a VR experience like the training simulator we highlighted earlier today. This trailer looks like it includes some of the footage that will be used in the experience. Enjoy!

Halo: Outpost Discovery is coming to give US cities this year. You can read all the details about the event and purchase tickets here.

Nintendo has quietly released a required system software update for the Nintendo Switch earlier this week. The new update brings the console from version 8.0.1 to 8.1.0.

As far as I can tell, no new features have been added other than the typical bug fixes and optimizations. However, you cannot update your games or access the Nintendo eShop until installing the console update.

Microsoft will be kicking off a huge multi-city tour to bring the Halo universe into the real world with Halo: Outpost Discovery. One of the major components to Halo: Outpost Discovery is a VR training simulator. Until today, we’ve only had concept art and screenshots to go on. Now, here’s a trailer with the first actual gameplay footage. Take a look!

This looks like the VR will be a lot of fun and will probably get a lot of play by the attendees. The art style and graphics share a lot of similarity to Halo 3‘s multiplayer mode. It will be interesting to see how the VR game plays, but you can be sure we will be giving it a full review after we experience it next month!

Halo: Outpost Discovery launches next month in Orlando, Florida. Following that, it will visit more venues including Philadelphia, PA and Anaheim, CA. You can get tickets to the event here.

Microsoft released a closer look at Halo: Outpost Discovery earlier today. This special event that will take place in five cities across the US will bring real people into the the world of Halo with attractions inspired by Halo Expanded Universe, like the Halo 3 Believe campaign’s Museum of Humanity.

While we aren’t yet at the date where we will be able to actually “see” the show’s exhibits for ourselves, the people of this website have been keeping track of the show’s progress. Here’s the latest trailer, which highlights some of Outpost Discovery’s attractions and has a 3D mockup of what the show floor is going to look like. If you are like us and can’t wait to check out the show floor, give this video a watch!

One of the biggest surprises from this year’s E3 was the announcement of No More Heroes III for the Nintendo Switch. Here’s the trailer!

I have to say I’m most surprised to see this official announcement so soon after the release of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes. I enjoyed that game quite a bit and hoped it would ensure this new game would get released on the Nintendo Switch. Turns out that will be the case.

No More Heroes III is coming in 2020 exclusively to the Nintendo Switch.
