“I was challenged to create a work in my own style, which typically has a dreamlike and sometimes fantastical quality, but ensuring that it’s instantly recognizable as Halo,” said artist Iva Troj. “I consequently spent a long time immersing myself in Halo’s universe to bring this to life in the manner of an old master but depicting a modern battle, and I hope Halo fans and gamers everywhere enjoy the results – including those smaller Easter eggs that you might not notice at first glance.”

What’s more, Xbox has also taken part in other unique activities to celebrate the launch and 20-years of franchise history. The two epic crystal collectibles with Swarovski pay tribute to the impact of Halo over the years. The Halo team also partnered with Hoonigan to build a real-life, 1,000 horsepower warthog inspired by the iconic in-game vehicle, as well as wowing fans at a recent Oregon Ducks football game with an augmented reality visit from a Halo Pelican.
