Xbox and 343 Industries have shown off a fresh look at Halo Infinite‘s campaign in a new video.

The video reminds us of the setup to Master Chief’s latest fight. Picking up not long after the events of Halo 5: Guardians, Spartan  John-117 looks to be the only hope against the Banished and their Zeta Halo. But first, he’ll need to find and team up with new AI The Weapon. Though she seems similar to Cortana, she’s been created precisely to take her down. However, it looks like she’s in the dark as to why, and her naivety might become a sticking point in her and Chief’s relationship.

Halo Infinite promises the biggest campaign in the series to date, with more freedom than ever before. By the looks, you’ll be taking down Banished Strongholds and Outposts dotted across the planet in a manner that seems similar to Far Cry 6.  To help out, the Chief has access to a brand new upgrade tree, letting him earn new skills and abilities.

Later on, the trailer introduces us to some of the game’s new enemies. We’ll meet the new Skimmers and the sadistic “Spartan Killer” known as Jega ‘Rdomnai. We’ll also be tussling with The Harbinger, who’s said to be even more powerful and will be more than a match for the Chief.

You can check out the Halo Infinite campaign overview video for yourself below. The game is set to launch on December 8, 2021 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.
