Microsoft has teamed up with sportswear companies Bauer and Riddell to release for a limited time Halo-inspired football and hockey equipment, so that some fans can now play as the protagonist of the Master Chief series. Halo is in the air of the cultural time of the game with his last opus of Infinite halo, which saw the launch of its multiplayer open beta in mid-November and its campaign (and official release) early last month.
Although Halo Infinite Multiplayer had a relatively difficult launch, fears about the game’s single-player campaign were allayed when it finally arrived and received critical acclaim. This latest iteration was not only considered a great entry for longtime fans of the series, but also an accessible choice for fans come to discover the world of Halo. Additionally, critics praised the story for rising above others. Halo accounts of the installments, claiming the story is one of the best in the series to date.
Infinite halo has yet to unlock its co-op multiplayer campaign, but the long-running franchise has a few limited-time releases to keep fans’ attention in the meantime. Bauer and Riddell recently unveiled (via GameSpot) some Halo-inspired sports gear for soccer and hockey players – or Halo collectors. Riddell has a limited-time Master-Chief-like football helmet priced at around $ 1,000 USD, with the recognizable Spartan number “117” painted on either side of the creation. The face mask of the helmet includes a yellow visor, also modeled on that of Master Chief Halo helmet. While the Riddell-Microsoft collaboration helmet appears to be tough enough for a real football game, Riddell’s product description includes a disclaimer stating: “The Master Chief inspired headset is intended for display use only and is not designed or intended for actual gaming or use. “
Bauer, unlike Riddell, tweeted about a unique gift Halo-infini-Hockey inspired goalie pads. The gift link no longer exists and therefore does not have a product description, but the hockey pads look like they could actually be used in a hypothetical hockey game. The stamps apparently come with other items resembling a master chef, such as a “A set of custom goal pads and a Master Chief goal mask.” ” The idea of a hockey goalie sporting the same look as the legendary Spartan Master Chief is certainly a sight to see, but his ability to protect said Guardian is probably questionable.
Although Bauer and Riddell Halo the objects are collectibles more than real sports equipment, the idea of Halo-inspired merchandise unexpected producers (like sportswear companies) seems to reflect the show’s endurance and cultural influence. Master Chief is an icon to many and should be treated as such, although his history and much of the lore of the series has yet to be revealed. That said, money is still a factor in the decision to buy such a commodity, and a Halo-The inspired football helmet might not be the best value for someone.
