Halo Infinite info can be a little difficult to find, especially online since it's not as widely released as the other games in the Halo series. The next Halo game, Halo 5: Guardians, is due out next spring for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, but there hasn't been a lot of information available regarding the gameplay and plot of the game yet, so this is where this piece will come in handy.
In order to gain a clear picture of what to expect with Halo Infinite, it helps to know the game is in development by none other than the makers of Halo, the best-selling first-person shooter franchise ever developed. Halo is created by Microsoft Game Studios and released by Xbox Game Studios for Xbox 360, Xbox Live Arcade, and Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox Series S and X. The fifth main installment in the long-running Halo series, Halo Infinite, is being developed in tandem with Creative Assembly Games for Windows and Xbox Live Arcade platforms.
The game is being developed as a single player and multiplayer experience, but it's a good bet to assume that the single player portion of the game will consist mainly of story sequences and prequels to previous games in the series. Unlike previous games in the Halo series, the storyline of this one is largely unknown and has very little to do with the Covenant and the Flood; instead focusing more on a new threat called the Covenant. While some details on the game's setting and the Covenant itself have been revealed by developers, much of the information on the game's storyline and characters is still pretty vague.
Like many of its predecessors in the Halo series, Halo Infinite is set to have a vast amount of multiplayer content. Multiplayer is expected to include the popular Reach mode from the previous games in the series, as well as a new multiplayer map and mode called “Forge.” While Forge is expected to be a very exciting mode in the multiplayer component of the game, players who aren't interested in the game's story should probably stay away from it since it will probably not offer a great deal of entertainment.
In addition to the multiplayer portions of the game, players will find that Halo Infinite also includes a multiplayer co-op component. This co-op feature allows players to work together with another person or team in the game's campaign, playing through the campaign in co-op fashion to finish it. There are two primary modes in multiplayer co-op, “spawn camping”capture the flag.” In spawn camping mode, two players fight off waves of Covenant soldiers before they can escape to their respective bases to fight the Covenant on their own, while in “capture the flag” players take control of a certain area on the map and defend it from Covenant forces as a team until the timer runs out.
In addition to the single player campaign, players should also take a look at the bonus features on the Halo Infinite disc, which is available for free if players purchase the game at the standard price. The bonus features are pretty fun additions that give players the opportunity to try out the game's multiplayer and co-op modes, see the game's new “Forge” mode, and even play a small level of “Halo 2: Anniversary” before it's released for everyone else on Xbox 360. The Halo 2: Anniversary Bonus Disc will include three new Halo games, including the original “Anniversary” game and “Reach,” as well as a special animated movie to play alongside the game's campaign. This film will provide a first look at the Covenant's new leader, the Prophet of Regret.
