Xbox and developer 343 Industries have finally revealed that they will be showcasing a new campaign gameplay overview for Halo Infinite, which will offer us a new slice of gameplay from the game’s anticipated single-player story. Taking place later today, it’s not yet known how deep of a dive we’ll get for the exciting gameplay.
Halo Infinite will release this December in two parts: the single-player campaign and the multiplayer. The former will be available in retailers and online, while the multiplayer will go free-to-play for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Additionally, Halo Infinite‘s single-player campaign will also hit Xbox Game Pass on day one.
The last time we got a good glimpse of Halo Infinite‘s campaign was back in May 2020 during Xbox’s first digital livestream. The footage shown off of the campaign was rough, to say the least, with many texture pop-ins and incomplete sound effects. Since then, 343 Industries have doubled down on significantly improving the campaign to make sure it’s up to scratch for launch. This new look will be the first time that we’ve seen proper gameplay of the campaign in almost two years.
Despite the multiplayer receiving a great reception thanks to its numerous beta tests, the campaign has been shrouded in mystery. We do know that 343 Industries are planning to take the series in new directions with this latest installment, including featuring an open-world structure taking place exclusively on the ruined Zeta Halo ring which has become overrun by The Banished, a rogue division of Brutes, Grunts, Jackals and Elites. Unfortunately, some features such as co-op and Forge will be absent at the game’s launch, though the developers have promised to add it in future updates.
You’ll be able to tune into the Halo Infinite gameplay overview at 3PM SAST, and can watch it below. Halo Infinite launches on 8 December 2021 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
