The Halo Infinite campaign launch trailer is here, just in time for Master Chief’s latest mission to get underway next week.
343 Industries has cracked out all the beats from the past couple of years, including the Pilot from the Discover Hope trailer all the way back at E3 2019. There’s also appearances from friends like new definitely-not-Cortana AI ‘The Weapon’ and a better look at some of Chief’s foes too. This includes glimpses of ‘Spartan Killer’ Jega ‘Rdoamni, War Chief Escharum and The Harbinger. Master Chief certainly has his work cut out for him if he stands to eliminate The Banished.
The only downside, of course, is that you won’t be able to play this Halo Infinite campaign co-operatively on launch. That’s currently pencilled in for the launch of Season Two, expected around May 2022. Still, it looks like we’re in for a single-player treat when the campaign lands, judging from the trailer below.
If you somehow missed it, the free-to-play mutliplayer portion of the game had a surprise launch into beta last month. It seems to be going well so far, although 343 Industries has had to deal with a few progression issues. Theoretically, it’ll lose the ‘beta’ moniker the same day as the Campaign launches, although we don’t know if that’ll result in any practical changes just yet.
The Halo Infinite campaign kicks off on Wednesday, December 8 and will be available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. And of course, as a first party Xbox title it’ll also be available from Day One via Xbox Game Pass.
