If you’ve ever wanted to play as Master Chief on the Switch, now you can…in the battle royale game Fortnite. At the 2020 Game Awards yesterday, the rumour about the protagonist of Xbox’s Halo series joining Epic’s insanely popular title came true.
Defender of humanity and destroyer of alien ringworlds, the Master Chief arrives as the next Hunter to the Island.

The Chief is available for 1500 V-Bucks, or you can get his entire set for 2600 V-Bucks. His pack comes with a UNSC Pelican Glider, a holographic Elite skull and a Gravity Hammer Pickaxe. In addition to this is a Lil’ Warthog emote.
To celebrate the addition of this new outfit, there’s also a recreation of the Halo multiplayer map Blood Gulch in Fortnite Creative. Here you can play a game of Capture the Flag. Find it in the ‘Featured Hub’ section of the game.
Master Chief follows on from the announcement of the God of War, Kratos. These characters are also being joined by Daryl Dixon and Michonne from The Walking Dead series. Will you be booting up Fortnite to see the Chief in action? Comment below.
