Xbox has shown off a life-size Warthog from Halo Infinite at the world premiere of the latest Ryan Reynolds movie, Free Guy.
Free Guy is a movie about a video game NPC who finds out that his life is not real. Judging by the trailers, the movie looks to be quite fun, and Reynolds has done a great job promoting it in recent weeks.
As detailed on Xbox Wire, the Warthog is fully functional and is created by Hoonigan Industries. It features 43” tires, 20” wheels, a twin-turbo small-block Ford V8 engine, and has over 1000 horsepower! Can I have a go now, please?
And the winner is!
The Warthog’s presence has much to do with the Xbox and Free Guy cross-promotion. Last week, Ryan Reynolds made up the Xbox Game Pass NPC Award. The nominees for the award included Guy ( Free Guy), Samuel Hayden (DOOM), Parvati Holcomb (The Outer Worlds), and Chief Trader Mollie (Sea of Thieves).
Since this is an award made up by Ryan Reynolds to win for himself, surely, he has to win, right? Well, no. Much to the dismay of Mr. Reynolds.
Ryan Reynolds offered his reaction and appreciation to the winner of the prestigious NPC award, Samuel Hayden of DOOM.
I would say that I feel sorry for Reynolds, but in truth, I am part of the problem. I am sorry to say that instead of voting for Reynolds, I also voted for Samuel Hayden. Sorry.
If you want a taste of what Free Guy is all about, then check out the video from YouTube reaction specialist Deadpool and special guest, Korg.
Free Guy will be released in cinemas from August 13th. Halo Infinite will release for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S this Autumn.
