With about a month-and-a-half to go until the release of the anticipated of Halo Infinite, 343 Inudstries has released a campaign overview of the new open-world designed for the latest Halo as well as a trailer teasing the threat of the Brute force the Banished. Watch the trailers below…
Halo Infinite was originally scheduled for release last year, but with the issues created by the ongoing pandemic and development troubles, the game was pushed back to this year. Halo Infinite is the third chapter in what 343 calls The Reclaimer Saga after Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians, the latter game detailing Cortana going rogue with Forerunner technology to institute a galactic uprising of AI for a forceful peace. Halo Infinite will see Master Chief joined by a new version of Cortana named ‘The Weapon’ as they search Zeta Halo to find out what happened to Cortana.
The campaign overview teases the game’s story, new enemy types and side missions for players to go on. With Halo Infinite being an open-world, players can explore Zeta Halo and expand the territory by destroying Banished outposts and command centres with the help of The Weapon and by linking up with trapped UNSC forces.
Meanwhile, the Banished also got their own trailer as their threat to Master Chief and Zeta Halo was further teased. The Banished are a Brute mercenary force that left the Covenant prior to the end of the Human-Covenant War and were introduced in the real-time strategy game Halo Wars 2.
When all hope is lost, and humanity’s fate hangs in the balance, the Master Chief is ready to confront the most ruthless foe he’s ever faced. Begin anew and step inside the armor of humanity’s greatest hero to experience an epic adventure and finally explore the scale of the Halo ring itself.
Halo Infinite will be released for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC on December 8th.
