This is the home stretch before the launch of Halo Infinite, and the title of 343 Industries presents itself one last time in a new trailer featuring its campaign mode. The traditional formula of the FPS franchise seems to be back – with its share of new features.
Alone against all
It is once again the future of humanity that ends up in the hands of Master Chief. The famous Spartan is sent on a mission to Installation 007, the infamous Zeta Halo ring so important in the franchise’s timeline, and will face an army of Banished determined to wipe mankind off the galactic map. To do so, he will be accompanied by a new artificial intelligence acting as a makeshift companion – and will go in search of Cortana, his long-standing right-hand man.
It is especially the opportunity to once again highlight the famous open world introduced for the very first time in the franchise with Infinite. If this new episode does indeed have indoor levels – glimpsed in previous gameplay videos – the communication cycle of 343 industries relies heavily on the exploration of the ring, and all the changes in terms of game design that that. implied.
The formula Halo has always lent itself to planning sequences in advance, and the introduction of enemy bases to be captured is a natural evolution but also, inevitably, more open. the trailer launch also looks at the various vehicles available to players to wreak havoc within the Ring.
The multi of discord
A few weeks ago, 343 industries released the beta of the free-to-play multiplayer mode of Halo Infinite for Xbox and PC gamers. Quickly become one of the most played titles of the last days on its launch platforms, this beta was not however free from criticisms, in particular about its progression model considered far too restrictive. The studio recently announced changes to XP acquisition in the early parts of the day to address these issues.
Halo Infinite will be available on December 8 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC. The game will also be integrated from its launch into the Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate catalog.
