One of the biggest coin-op game releases in recent months is set to enjoy a launch event at a Timezone location in Australia.


Halo: Fireteam Raven, developed by Raw Thrills, Play Mechanix and 343 Industries, will be playable for the first time at the FEC chain’s outlet in the Macquarie Centre in Sydney. It will subsequently be rolled out to centres in Melbourne, the Gold Coast and Perth.

YouTube celebrities are slated to attend the event, which will also see a competition to find the best Halo cosplay outfit. The prize will earn one lucky guest a year’s worth of Timezone game credit.

The game is played out on a 130ins 4K monitor and is housed in a four-player cabinet, which features 5.1 surround sound and force feedback mounted guns.
