Microsoft and CLX Announce Halo Outpost Discovery

Announced today in a press release, Microsoft and CLX have teamed up in celebration of the Halo franchise, creating a temporary “interactive experience” in several cities that they say will give fans “a unique experience and taste of what being in their favorite game is like”. Not only will people get to play the new PC version of Halo: Reach on CLX computers, but there’s a variety of other exhibits planned.

The big exhibit is the Hall of History, a modern museum based around the Halo universe, including uniforms, weapons, models, and vehicles from the series. There’s also an escape room taking place inside a Covenant ship, Halo-themed laser tag of 20 teams each, a VR deck, Pelican Flight Simulator, target range, and of course a gift shop. The gift shop will have items exclusive to the Outpost (although they’ll certainly be sold online with quite a bit of markup), including collectibles and cosplay materials. Each location will also have a variety of panels as well as a cosplay contest.

The Outpost will travel across the country throughout the summer:

Orlando, July 5-7

Philadelphia, July 19-21

Chicago, August 2-4

Houston, August 16-18

Anaheim, August 30-September 1

The exhibit will be open from 1 PM to 9 PM on Fridays, 10 AM to 7 PM on Saturdays, and 10 AM to 5 PM on Sunday. On Fridays and Saturdays, the VIP pass well let you enter an hour early and remain and hour later, as well as letting you get in an hour earlier on Sundays.

A general admission ticket for a single day will cost $60 and not only let you into the exhibit, but also give you a 14-day free trial of Xbox Game Pass, as well as two exclusive costumes in the game. A VIP ticket for a single day costs $140 and gets you a gift back with various merchandise, access to a VIP lounge, a three month trial to Game Pass, and more costumes for your character. A three day general admission ticket costs $130, and a three day VIP ticket costs $320. If you buy tickets in a group, you can get a small discount. Tickets can be bought here.
