Want to make your errands around town and sitting through traffic feel like a fun adventure?

Halo’s Master Chief can help you plot out the most direct route, navigate traffic with ease, and help you arrive in style with detailed voice directions in the first ever video game-themed experience on Waze. 

Microsoft Xbox and the navigation app Waze have teamed up to add Halo Infinite-themed content to the app for a limited time.

“Starting today, drivers around the world can access a brand-new Waze experience that allows them to drive with vehicles and characters straight from the Halo universe,” announced Gordon Donald, International Partnerships Lead regarding the promotion on Tuesday (August 3).

Aside from getting their trips navigation audio from none other than the Master Chief himself, users can also get driving commands from Escharum, the leader of Halo Infinite’s enemy faction, the Banished.

According to a blog post by Xbox about the promotion, the Halo options are available worldwide, though Master Chief and Escharum voice directions are only in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. 

To enable the Halo experience, open the Waze menu and tap on the “Drive with Master Chief” button. From there, you can set your Mood, car icon, and navigation voice to be UNSC or Banished-themed,

There are also a few other settings that let users make their navigation experience more Halo-themed, including the ability to have vehicles show up as a Warthog or Ghost on the app.

The content will reportedly only be in Waze for a limited time globally, so be sure to check it out soon to experience Halo-themed driving.
