Master Chief Will Give You GPS Directions In New Halo Infinite Promo With Waze

Master Chief or Escharum will get you where you're going thanks to a partnership between Microsoft and Waze.


Google's Waze service has teamed p with Microsoft for a Halo-themed takeover where Master Chief will give you driving directions in real life to help you get to where you're going.

You can drive with Master Chief and have your real car visualized as a Warthog, or you can ride with Escharum the Banished war chief giving you directions as your car is displayed as a Ghost.

The Halo Co-Pilot feature, as it's called, is available in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. And it features what sounds like Master Chief voice actor Steve Downes himself giving you directions and saying things like, "In a half a mile, turn left." The Halo takeover is only available for a limited time as part of the effort to promote the launch of Halo Infinite this year.

Waze previously worked with celebrities like DJ Khaled and Arnold Schwarzenegger to have them give you directions on the road. Waze also partnered with Kevin Conroy for a Batman takeover.
