Halo Infinite: release date, gameplay, and what we know so far


Although the game has gone through all the rework and delays, Halo Infinite is still the first choice for gamers. Although Xbox and developer 343 Industries have released trailers and game screens for the next adventure of the Master Chief, there are still many mysteries about Halo Infinite. On the one hand, the final appearance of the game is still up in the air, and we still know very little about the story. We will definitely hear more news soon, because this game is the core of the Microsoft and Bethesda Showcase to be held at E3 2021.

When is the release date of Halo Unlimited?

Halo Infinite has one After announcing the postponement of August 2020, the autumn release date of 2021.At least we know The game is scheduled to launch later this year, but we don’t know the exact month or date.

Halo Infinite was originally scheduled to be released on Xbox Series X, PC and Xbox One that support smart delivery during the 2020 holiday period. The head of Xbox Phil Spencer once said that first-party games like Halo Infinite will be available on Xbox Game Pass when they are released.

Is Aura Infinity an open world?

So far, we have only seen the 9-minute gameplay released during the Xbox Games Showcase Livestream in 2020. It can be seen from this lens that the design of “Halo Infinity” takes into account more open-world gameplay and aims to provide players with more freedom.

Unlike linear levels, the master master will be able to explore the entire halo ring, where players may encounter skulls in the environment or encounter outposts of the Star Alliance.

This time playing the Master Chief will also have a different feeling, because he now has an upgrade and a technology tree. Overtime players will unlock new equipment, such as dropped shields and grappling hooks. In the past, Halo games had upgrades such as rocket packs and armor locks, but these upgrades seem to run through the entire game process rather than limited pickup.

Unfortunately, although dual wielding will not reappear, you may shoot down enemies from the halo.

Halo infinite graphics

Halo’s graphics have been a hot topic for many years. After strong community feedback on “Halo 4,” “Halo 5: Guardians,” and “Halo Wars 2,” 343 Industries re-adopted more traditional aesthetics drawn from the original trilogy.

Unfortunately, even with the new/old art style, the community is not satisfied with the visual fidelity presented by Halo Infinite. The game demo is full of pop-up objects, plastic-like textures and flat lighting. To this end, 343 Industries is committed to improving the overall fidelity and presentation level of the final game.

We hope to see Halo Infinite’s redesigned graphics for the first time at E3 2021 soon.

Halo Infinite Story

Halo Infinite and its story were first teased E3 2018 trailer, A movie trailer named Discover Hope on E3 2019, with secret audio information from Cortana, and finally a trailer video with news from The Banished.

First, Halo Infinite happened after Halo 5 ended. Rampant Cortana is nowhere to be found, and the impact of her AI uprising remains a mystery.

But it is clear that the main enemy of Halo Infinite is The Banished in Infinite-a rogue faction of Brutes from Halo Wars 2. The main villain is War Chief Echarum, the leader of the exile, who has controlled the halo ring as the chief of his last stop against the master.

There may also be another mysterious character who will be involved in the story named “Pioneer”, it may or may not be Cortana.
