Xbox unveiled a life-sized, scale replica of a Warthog — an all-terrain vehicle designed to transport troops and materials through dangerous battlefields — from Halo Infinite at the world premiere of 20th Century Studios’ “Free Guy” in New York. Keep a close eye out during “Free Guy” and you might even catch a glimpse of certain all-terrain vehicles and tanks from the Halo universe!
To bring the iconic transport vehicle to our universe, Hoonigan Industries, the leading lifestyle motorsport brand, worked closely with the team at Halo and 343 Industries to develop this special project-built Warthog, solely using hi-res images and renders from Halo Infinite, launching this holiday season. The vehicle features a body, interior, switchgear, and accessories that were all hand-crafted and fabricated with intricate detail at Hoonigan Industries. Not only does it look like it could carry the Master Chief into battle, but it also runs like it! Standing tall on 43-inch tires and custom 20-inch wheels, the Warthog is fully functional and off-road tested featuring a 1000+ horsepower, twin turbo small block Ford V8, the same engine that powers Ken Block’s Ford Mustang Hoonicorn V2.
Additionally, Ryan Reynolds announced the winner of the Xbox Game Pass Non-Player Character Awards as Doom’s Samuel Hayden — a high ranking UAC official who may or may not be entirely machine at this point. Check out the video here of Reynolds expressing his disappointment that Guy (“Free Guy”) lost.
The official Twitter poll ended with the following results:
- Samuel Hayden (Doom) 46%
- Parvati Holcomb (The Outer Worlds) 17.9%
- Chief Trader Mollie (Sea of Thieves) 6.6%
- Guy (Free Guy) 29.5%
Lastly, for all of the NPCs not recognized by the Non-Player Character Awards, we see you and we are happy to introduce a very special personal injury lawyer: “Bryan Breynolds.” To learn more about Bryan’s prestigious career spent tirelessly representing Xbox NPCs who have been punched, body slammed or flame throwed, visit his LinkedIn profile and check out his latest commercial.
Be on the lookout for the Warthog — you never know where it may show up next!
