Microsoft is preparing to launch Halo: infiniteAnd The last game in the new trilogy created by 343 Industries and they really want to move forward with their promotional content. One of his wildest plans was to commission the iconic Warthog to build a fully functional version equipped with an engine that would make it one of the most powerful vehicles in the world.

They’ve already made other recreations of the Halo Marine Combat Vehicle for the showcases, but only up to this point have they been able to create a true “off-road” vehicle.
