About Master Chief
Humanity’s war against the alien Covenant produced many heroes, but only one legend: Master Chief Petty Officer John-117.
Conscripted into the secret SPARTAN-II program at a young age, John-117 excelled in his physical and mental training and endured the many biological and cybernetic augmentations which transformed him into a super-soldier. John quickly emerged as a clear leader among the Spartans, and advanced quickly in responsibility and rank to that of Master Chief. As the Covenant empire burned world after world, it was the Spartans who held the line when all other hope of victory was lost.
Once he was fitted with state-of-the-art Mjolnir powered assault armor, the Master Chief quickly became one of the most pivotal and important figures of the human species in the 26th century. He was later paired with the incredibly advanced artificial intelligence, Cortana. Together, Master Chief and Cortana became an almost unstoppable warrior that single-handedly changed the course of the Covenant War and the conflicts which followed.
Halo: Fireteam Raven
Halo: Fireteam Raven is a cooperative arcade sci-fi shooting game from arcade legends Raw Thrills and Play Mechanix in a unique partnership with 343 Industries. Set in the timeframe of Halo: Combat Evolved, this new arcade experience hot-drops players feet first into the boots of Fireteam Raven – a group of elite Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODST) fighting alongside the Master Chief as they try desperately to prevent the alien Covenant alliance from taking control of the Halo ringworld.
