343 Industries gave another look at Halo Infinite's campaign today, the most we've seen of the story since last year's showcase. The Master Chief in his Mjolnir armor, the sandbox environments, weapon effects, and set pieces, all look very much improved over previous looks we've been given. Catch the over 6-minute-long overview trailer for the campaign above.
Cortana gives a quick rundown of the story leading up to Infinite before we get shown outdoor and indoor environments, followed by a whole lot of fighting both on foot and using vehicles. A Spartan assassin named "Jega 'Rdomnai" is unveiled too as a new opposing force. The grappling hook is once again shown off quite a lot here, a new addition to the series aiming to make the Master Chief a much more agile fighter.
Master Chief is also seen using a vehicle call-in station to order a Wasp from his new pilot companion before taking the fight to a Banished outpost from above. Compared to the old footage, the improvements to lighting and other visuals can be seen quite clearly.
The fan reaction to the original campaign reveal in 2020 was lukewarm, with criticism mainly being thrown at the graphics department. The title was delayed a few months later to 2021, missing out on the launch title status for the Xbox Series X|S.
Halo Infinite's campaign and free-to-play multiplayer launches on December 8 across Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Xbox Game Pass subscribers will gain access to the campaign at launch as well. Recently, the 343 Industries also detailed the work that's going into the PC version of Halo Infinite, from implementing FOV sliders and anti-cheat to adding local hosting support for LAN parties.
