New Multiplayer Gameplay Video & Overview Released for Halo Infinite

Microsoft finally shared some new details on the Halo Infinite Multiplayer at the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase. It was a fantastic show already, but the Halo addition was welcome after such a long delay to the game. Microsoft has now shared a new multiplayer overview video, giving us a deepdive into 343 industries and the work they’ve been doing. Of course, with this being the first free-to-play multiplayer aspect for the main series, it’s certainly going to get a lot of attention.

The video details PC, Xbox, Crossplay, Seasons, Customisation and the new Sandbox mode (basically, the new Forge). Hopefully, the F2P nature of the game won’t just see it littered with hackers and bots as we saw on Call of Duty… I’m genuinely concerned about this. I may even stick to playing it on Xbox and blocking PC players if that is an option available to me.

There’s plenty of new gameplay footage in the video though, so it’s well worth checking out. While it was meant to launch with the Xbox Series X/S, Halo Infinite will now launch Holiday 2021.

What 343i Had to Say

“After nearly 20 years of Spartan combat and experience to contend with, we know the Halo multiplayer arena can sometimes be a daunting experience. To help address this, a key pillar for Halo Infinite is to be the most approachable and welcoming entry in the series to date. To help ensure all Spartans meet the UNSC’s high bar and have the skills necessary to succeed on the battlefield, we’re excited to introduce the all-new Academy. Under the mentorship of Spartan Commander Laurette, the Academy offers players the opportunity to hone their skills and get better acclimated with the armaments and environments of Halo Infinite. Recruits will be able to dial-in their marksmanship skills at the target range or jump right into customizable training skirmishes and square off against AI-controlled bots. Training Mode lets you configure specific loadouts, deploy opponent bots of various skill levels, and practice on your own terms. Bots can also be configured in Custom Games to tailor the experience and even in fill-in roster spots for MIA fireteam members.” –halowaypoint.com
