If you’re a Halo fan, you should have marked your calendar for November 11th by now, as it’s the day the company plans to launch the latest title from their franchise, Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Microsoft plans to hold a live stream of HaloFest 2014 from the Avalon Theater in Los Angeles, starting at 8pm Pacific time on November 10th, a day before the launch of the Halo: The Master Chief Collection itself. There will be a world premiere of the first episode of Halo: Nightfall as well; users will be able to view the live stream on their Xbox Live, Xbox.com, and Twitch.
“On Nov. 8-9, the Halo: The Master Chief Collection Launch Invitational, presented by ESL, will feature 32 of the biggest names in eSports going toe-to-toe in Halo 2: Anniversary multiplayer for $50,000 in prizes and the chance to be the first to play the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta. The competition will take place at ESL’s Southern California headquarters, and all coverage will be streamed at Twitch.tv/Halo on Nov. 8-9, with additional highlights airing during the HaloFest live broadcast on Nov. 10.”
HaloFest 2014 will include a lot of exciting events for Halo fans to see, including a first look at the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta, before its release on December 29th later this year. Fans will also be able to view an exhibition match between eSports pros, while offering a first glimpse at the multiplayer gameplay.
Additionally, there will be interviews as well; including Head of 343 Industries, Bonnie Ross, Franchise Development Director, Frank O’Connor, Executive Producer, Dan Ayoub, Executive Producer, Josh Holmes, and other members from the development team. The event will also come with several Halo-related activities, including a global Halo tournament.Further reading: Halo, Microsoft, Xbox One
