With E3 in full swing, Ford decided to get in on the video game action by creating an F-150 with a design inspired by Microsoft’s Halo franchise. The result is a real-world vehicle that looks like it would fit right in with the United Nations Space Command fleet, minus the presence of a rail gun in the payload. The automaker put the truck on display during E3, of course with the hope that it will spur more people to try out the all-new 2015 model.

The custom truck is called the Ford F-150 Halo Sandcat, probably because that sounded cool. Interestingly enough, Ford says it has a United Nations Space Command codename M552, which is close to the automaker’s codename of P552.

To create the one-off F-150, Ford joined forces with the Xbox team, 343 Industries and Galpin Auto. The people behind the truck’s creation took a stock 2015 Ford F-150 Lariat SuperCrew 4×4 with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine and FX4 off-road package. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been modified to run on hydrogen or in a pinch on urine like the like the famous Warthog, which is a real shame.

Galpin Auto Sports used some extensive modifications to transform the F-150 into the Sandcat. That includes an Addictive Desert Designs Baja XTR off-road conversion kit, which comes with Fox Racing shocks, helping prepare it for the rigors of different planetary assaults. Other additions that give the vehicle some real-world ability include Deaver leaf springs, ADD fenders, a Currie full floater rear axle, side steps, a chase rack and 17-inch wheels wrapped with off-road tires.

The interior also comes with some UNSC olive green treatments, helping further set it apart from regular F-150s.

If the people riding in the truck get bored of playing real-world Halo, there is an onboard Xbox One installed in the cab, with screens installed in the rear portion of the front seat headrests.
