Windows 11 and its centre-aligned start menu are almost upon us, and so Microsoft is cranking its adverts into gear. The latest recruit in the big marketing push: Master Chief.
The video below leans pretty heavily on Xbox Game Pass and the upcoming Halo Infinite. A woman explores Windows 11, taps on the Game Pass icon, and is whisked off to some mystery desert.
There, a Covenant Banshee swoops into view. Thankfully, Master Chief turns up in a Warthog, jumps out and blows the Banshee to hell with a rocket launcher missile.
Within the pink-coloured explosion unfurls a screenshot of the Windows 11 user interface. His job complete, Chief jumps back into the Warthog and drives off. Fingers crossed this is a side quest in Halo Infinite’s campaign.
The woman falls through the sand and out a library ceiling painting that depicts the Chief and his fight against the Covenant. It looks a bit like the Halo 3 box art to me.
Later in the ad, the woman uses the Xbox app on her laptop. Halo Infinite is there, down as coming soon, alongside Psychonauts 2 and Age of Empires 4. Gaming!
Windows 11 comes out 5th October. Will you realign the start menu to the bottom-left?
