Halo 4: Are you Worthy?
- Halo 4Are you worthy?–Hardcore gamers are an influential group of consumers that set the agenda
for how new games are perceived and are hard to please. They had been waiting
for the return of Master Chief (The Halo main character, who many had presumed
M.I.A.) for 5 years. To re-ignite their passion we wanted to give them a special
treat as part of the important pre-order campaign.The idea was to create a website, areyouworthy.se, and challenge the fans to
prove themselves worthy for Master Chief’s memorial service. We created a “real”
HALO world – a context the fans know well and can identify with – to establish
an experience in the HALO world where Master Chief could be resurrected.
We would also never actually talk about HALO, but rather spark the
conversation within the HALO world.We started by creating a character - General Jack S Waters - who could tell
our story within the Halo universe. He featured in teaser clips on the campaign
site and would host the actual launch event – which would be a memorial
service for Master Chief.
