Microsoft Teases the Halo: Infinite Campaign

Posted on October 25, 2021 by Paul Thurrott in Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox, PC gaming with 7 Comments

With just six weeks to go before the game is available, Microsoft today released a 6-minute preview of the Halo: Infinite Campaign.

“The Banished have defeated UNSC forces and taken control of the mysterious Zeta Halo, threatening the survival of humankind,” the video description explains. “When all hope is lost and humanity’s fate hangs in the balance, the Master Chief returns to confront the most ruthless foe he’s ever faced. Here’s a fresh look at the Halo Infinite campaign that introduces players to true Spartan freedom in the biggest, most wide-open, and adventure-filled Halo experience yet, launching on December 8, 2021.”

You can check out the video for yourself on YouTube.

    I haven't played Halo since Halo 3. No offense to 343 but I felt it was Bungie's story and I liked the way they wrapped things up.

    But this? This is going to bring me right back in. It looks like an absolute blast.

    It looks good, it just sucks CoOp is missing at launch. I guess I just drive the warthog and no one shoots ☹️

    I do hope the story moves past “Halo rings” and Master Chief gets promoted to General or something…I mean seriously, after saving the universe a few times the guy is due for a new look and title…

    I hope it's better than Halo 5 which was a huge letdown to me...

    Now if only I can find an Xbox Series X to play this on without paying 2x

    This trailer looked excellent IMO, and the overall reaction by people seems to be very positive. I'm really looking forward to playing this (FINALLY got a RTX 3080 just in time).

    Sad that co-op won't be there at launch, was really looking forward to playing through it with my cousin.

    I worry that Halo is going "open world" and the gameplay will be like all of Ubisoft's open world games (ie FarCry) which everyone is tired off now.

      I find myself on the other side wanting a game that isn't riding on rails linear play.
