Liechtenstein cast in a video game Halo

- November 7th, 2012

XBox 360 has annexed an entire country all in the name of Master Chief.

The PR stunt by Halo 4 folks, who appropriately chose Halloween as the day of its takeover, redecorated the European nation of Liechtenstein in United Nations Space Command paraphernalia.

Master Chief saunters through the streets of Liechtenstein in search of Covenant.

Gutenburg Castle, as well as Balzers Quarry which was transformed into adventure zone for guests, complete with Master Chief driving a Warthog, fell victim to the invasion.

This isn’t the first a video game franchise has taken over a large space to entertain gamers. Activision used Howard Hughes’ old airplane hangar in Los Angeles for Call of Duty XP.
