'Halo Waypoint' coming to Xbox Live

Halo 'experience' with news, activities and player rankings

Microsoft says it will be distributing just-announced Halo anime series, Halo Legends through a new section of Xbox Live called 'Halo Waypoint'.

Halo Waypoint will launch in the autumn as a "new destination for Halo fans on Xbox Live around the world," says MS.

Waypoint will "inform fans of the latest Halo news and activities, and grant access to content ranging from podcasts, trailers and screenshots, to exclusive video footage you won't find anywhere else," it says.

Interestingly, it will also provide a "career system" and player rankings tied to both in-game and out-of-game accomplishments related to Halo. They should just rename the whole service to Halo Live.

Halo Waypoint will debut several behind-the-scenes videos that chronicle the making of Halo Legends soon, says MS.
