Halo is back, baby

Halo Infinite from publisher Microsoft and developer 343 Industries had its campaign shown off, with cool goodies such as its grappling hook used during its 8-minute demo that also had a cameo from the game's intimidating villain.

The Xbox blog has also released some more information about the latest game in the Halo saga. This includes information on what guns the Master Chief is using, such as his MA40 assault rifle, the high-precision VK78 Commando, and the devastating Ravager plasma weapon. The Grappleshot was shown which lets the Chief bring enemies and objects to him while traveling across the map like a sci-fi version of Batman. There's also a portable shield called a Drop Wall that will either defend the Chief from enemy fire or deflect grenades from exploding and killing the big green boi. 

 
 

The Banished are shown for the first time in a main Halo series game, with the faction first appearing in Halo Wars 2. They have units such as the Brutes, which are led by the War Chief Escharum, who apparently will be "one of the most formidable foes the Master Chief has ever faced." We'll have to see how badass he is, but from the trailer he looks pretty cool at least.

The game will be also larger then the last two games combined, and will reach 60 fps up to 4k resolution for all those who want their sweet FPS action at a silky smooth framerate. The multiplayer gameplay will be shown off this later this year as it approaches its Holiday 2020 release date. 

If you want to wishlist Halo Infinite on Steam, be sure to go here. Halo Infinite will release on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC in Holiday 2020.


Quick Take

Halo Infinite looks fantastic. The graphics looks great, the gameplay looks smooth, and it looks like 343 Industries has finally learned that people wanted classic Halo reimagined and continued, not a new version Halo altogether. Having a Halo that is twice the size of the last two games set in a traditionally Halo environment sounds great, and with that slick-looking gunplay it looks like what Halo fans have wanted since 343 Industries took over the Halo series. We'll have to see if it plays as good as it looks later this year.


What do you think of Halo Infinite? Is it a game that looks like something you're going to want to play? Do you want to wait for more information before you get hyped? Let us know in the comments!
