The voices behind the Halo franchise's Master Chief and Cortana are coming to the Auckland Armageddon Expo later this year. 

The Armageddon Expo made the blockbuster announcements over on its Facebook page. Both Steve Downes (Master Chief) and Jen Taylor (Cortana) are coming down to Auckland. 

Both of them have been voicing the legendary characters since the first Halo game came out in 2001. They are still voicing the characters today and are expected to return whenever Halo 6 comes out. 

Outside of Halo, Downes voiced a character in last year's Xbox One exclusive Quantum Break. As for Taylor, she's been involved in lots of other projects including Left 4 Dead 2, Destiny and more. 

The Auckland Armageddon Expo happens at the ASB Showgrounds on October 20th until October 23rd. Other confirmed guests include Nathan Fillion, Tom Felton and loads more.
