A new Halo Infinite hotfix has arrived, fixing some online connectivity issues with the game alongside a handful of other bug fixes and improvements.
Halo Infinite has been out for a little while now and 343 Industries have been very busy beavers indeed. It's been tracking down issues (such as a recently-discovered desync problem) and improving the progression system of the online multiplayer portion. Earlier today, a new hotfix has arrived which shores up a few other problems that players have reported.
What's New in Today's Halo Infinite Hotfix?
Don't go looking for any massive changes in today's Halo Infinite hotfix -- it targets just a few specific issues that some players have reported with the game. Here's what's changed:
- Improvements to online service connections after re-entering Halo Infinite using Quick Resume on Xbox Series X|S consoles. Players should see quicker and more stable reconnections to our services.
- MJOLNIR Armor Locker customizations collected in Campaign are now consistently unlocked in the Multiplayer Customization menu.
- Players who did not receive their customizations, either due to losing their internet connection or using Quick Resume on Xbox Series X|S consoles, should now have their customizations unlocked.
- Xbox Achievement reliability has been improved in this update.
- Achievements no longer track progress toward their completion, but will unlock as expected when their conditions are met.
- If an Achievement’s conditions were met prior to this update but the Achievement did not unlock as completed yet, it should unlock after installing this update and continuing Campaign gameplay.
As you can see, this one is mostly housekeeping; that said, it's probably not good that flagship Xbox features such as achievements and Quick Resume weren't exactly working right and it's nice to see 343 Industries quickly addressing the problem.
This Halo Infinite hotfix builds on yesterday's update which improved challenges and added several new playlists. You can dive into the online experience by playing Halo Infinite multiplayer for free on PC and Xbox via its official website; you can also buy Halo Infinite if you're keen on checking out the campaign.
