As promised, the guys at 343 Industries are back showing the Halo Infinite single-player campaign a year after the unconvincing Xbox Game Showcase presentation. The new gameplay video turned out to be much more impressive, with new details on the story, enemies and setting, and various information on the new gameplay mechanics.
The new trailer confirms that the Halo: Infinite campaign is the biggest ever and that the developers have tried to create an experience that guarantees players the greatest possible freedom. Set after the events of Halo 5: Guardians, Halo: Infinite begins with the landing of Master Chief on the planet Zeta Halo to recover a new AI called “the weapon” and find out what happened to Cortana.
The gameplay seems to have undergone an RPG twist, with a tree full of unlockable and upgradeable abilities, life bars for enemies, outposts to free, and much more. It will also be possible to recover different types of vehicles and use them at will to eliminate the ranks of enemies and decrease their control over the planet. Among the many new features, the grapple is impressive, which can be used creatively to retrieve weapons from the ground, hook onto vehicles or attack enemies from above.
Halo Infinite will be released on December 8, 2021, on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S and will be available on day one on Game Pass. The co-op campaign and the Forge mode will arrive in 2022.
