Halo Infinite campaign gameplay footage is now available with new enemies, locations, RPG system, and more.
New images from the Halo Infinite campaign were released today, October 25. This is the first full preview we have of the campaign since July 2020 – check out the images below.
The footage shows how Master Chief will work with a new AI – The Weapon – to find out what happened to Cortana after the events of Halo 5. The trailer also shows the widely open level structure of Halo Infinite, and now you can apparently calling vehicles instead of finding them exclusively on the map. The game takes place on Zeta Halo, which is overrun with banished enemies. Players will find banished encampments and devastate enemies on the map. The trailer also features Halo Infinite’s new tactical map, and it looks like players can explore the game at their own pace.
We also get a quick look at Halo Infinite’s RPG system for suit upgrades, while we also see a new type of enemy – skimmers. Check out the full video below.
Prior to that, the only campaign gameplay sequence for Halo Infinite that was officially released arrived in July 2020, and it was very disappointing for many fans.
Microsoft has also released what appears to be a new story synopsis for Halo Infinite, which addresses the threat facing Master Chief, The Banished. It also boasts that Halo Infinite will have the “biggest, most open, and most adventure-filled” campaign yet.
“The outcast have defeated UNSC forces and taken control of the mysterious Zeta Halo, threatening the survival of humanity,” 343 said. “When all hope is lost and the fate of humanity is at stake , the Master Chief returns to take on the most ruthless foe he has ever faced. Here’s a fresh take on the Halo Infinite campaign that introduces players to true Spartan freedom in the biggest, widest, open-ended Halo experience. full of adventure, launched on December 8, 2021. “
The Halo Infinite campaign was a no-show at Gamescom in August, and 343 boss Joseph Staten acknowledged fans’ frustrations and explained why the decision was made.
Staten said the development team is now in “shutdown mode,” which means work on the game’s main features for launch is complete and the studio is now fixing the highest priority bugs. It’s a fat Time-consuming and resource-consuming work, and creating a new campaign demo or trailer to show off the campaign would have slowed things down.
Halo Infinite Campaign and Multiplayer are separate and stand-alone products. Multiplayer is free, while campaigning comes at a premium. Both games are also offered through Xbox Game Pass.
After a long delay, Halo Infinite will launch on December 8 on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S.
