While you have to wait a while longer to play Halo Infinite and watch the new Halo TV show, fans of Microsoft’s famous shooter franchise do have something new to check out.

Halo: Fireteam Raven, an arcade game set in the Halo: Combat Evolved timeline, is available now at all Dave & Busters locations, Microsoft has announced. It’s been rolling out at select stores, but as of now it should be available at the arcade/sports bar’s dozens of locations across the United States.

Fireteam Raven will also be available at arcade locations internationally. The game will make its Australian debut at Timezone in Sydney this week, before coming to Melbourne, the Gold Coast, and Perth in August.

The game is set in the timeline of Halo: Combat Evolved, putting players into the shoes of ODST troopers that make up Fireteam Raven. While you don’t play as Master Chief, you’re battling his enemies: Covenant forces. The four-player game is played on a 130-inch 4K screen with four mounted turrets. Players fight together to take down the Flood and also compete for high scores. The game also makes use of Halo Waypoint so you can track your scores and earn rewards. Fireteam Raven was developed by arcade veterans Raw Thrills and Play Mechanix with the support of Halo custodian 343 Industries.

The next big Halo game is Halo Infinite. A trailer for the game’s engine, not the game itself, premiered at E3 this year. The game is coming to Xbox One and PC, but it may or may not support Xbox Play Anywhere. For more on Fireteam Raven, check out the announcement trailer above.
