The countdown to the midnight launch of Halo 5: Guardians will begin at 8pm on Labour Day, Monday 26 October, at the Logan Campbell Centre, ASB Showgrounds with an exclusive event in conjunction with EB Games and hosted by The Rock FM’s Mike Garvey. New Zealanders will be first in the world to get their hands on Halo 5: Guardians, ushering in the next generation of Halo.
The hours leading up to the biggest game launch of the year will be packed with giveaways, movies, replica Halo weapons, armour and vehicles, as well as hands-on sessions with Halo 5: Guardians and prizes for the best Halo cosplayers.
