Free Guy is the latest movie starring Ryan Reynolds, and is centered around video game Easter eggs, but some of those in-game hints have also surfaced in real life. After the release of the film, the actors and film crew celebrated the premiere with the fans. Since the hype surrounding Halo Infinite was still at its height after that first flight test, the 1: 1 scale appearance of the Halo franchise warthog was more than ideal.
Several images can be seen in a post from Halo’s official account, including Reynolds himself posing in front of a Halo-provided vehicle. While this is nothing new, 343 has hosted Halo-specific events in the past that feature the same ride, but seeing it on the red carpet is amazing:
It doesn’t matter whether you’re wading through the streets of New Mombasa or cruising in style along the Free City Highway, the versatile and venerable Warthog is always ready for action. 😎 pic.twitter.com/awkwMlpt0o

For those who might not know what Free Guy is about, it follows the story of a bank teller who realizes that he is just a simple NPC in an open world video game. Not content with being just a minor character, the cashier seeks a new life to become his own hero while rewriting himself in the process. In his post-fulfillment efforts, Reynold’s character seeks a new journey to save a world plunged into chaos before it’s too late.
This is an interesting premise, and critics still seem to take advantage of it. Early reviews are positive about the film, claiming it is an enjoyable experience, especially for the gaming community. Seeing this premise is just the beginning as the gaming industry continues to grow and influence the entertainment environments around it. We watch more and more movies and TV shows adapting some of our favorite games. Even Netflix has founded its own gaming sect, even offering video games as part of its subscription in the near future.
In the Halo realm, recent flight testing was the first of several upcoming Early Access periods, giving fans a glimpse of what 343 is working on. The focus of the recent testing period has been multiplayer games and the academy, which you can learn more about here so as not to spoil the plot details. about the campaign. The studio has mentioned in the past that this will be some sort of end for the Master Chief’s story – whether this just means the ongoing narrative seen in the franchise, or the true ending for him as a character remains to be seen. However, one thing is for sure: we can’t wait to plunge into our newest adventure.
