Halo Infinite - Campaign Overview

The Banished have defeated UNSC forces and taken control of the mysterious Zeta Halo, threatening the survival of humankind. 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.

The story is too old to be commented.

literal chills, that was so good, a massive improvement, roll on launch day!!!

EvertonFC43d ago (Edited 43d ago )

"massive improvement"?

Vegamyster43d ago

How do you need to edit a comment that’s just copying someone else’s comment in an attempt to troll lol.

ColtPSSX43d ago (Edited 43d ago )

Graphic wise, not so much but you can’t deny the gameplay looks so much better.

I think the game will be great in fun factor judging from the trailer. Can’t wait. Almost here

Lol at the disagree.
The graphics isn’t anything special. Especially for a game of this caliber.
Look at forza.
Some of the texture looks bland. Like in the rock at 2:54.

But gameplay wise looks so much better.

Tacoboto43d ago

Halo is looking second only to Forza as opposed to last year looking last gen. What a huuuge problem they have now!

Game looks fantastic in today's overview, gameplay and, yes, all those nicely lit pixels too.

Yeah dont listen to the usual haters it looks great, looks like the delay was time well spent, most importantly from the the small bits shown here the gameplay looks very fluid and fun, so if the story holds up along with everything else we've so far, it looks like us Halo fans are in for one helluva ride.

Lightning7743d ago

Exceptional improvements over last year's gameplay yes. This is on X1 so they have to work around the original build and upgrade the Series consoles as much as possible.

LordoftheCritics43d ago (Edited 43d ago )

One thing tho.

The way the ship dropped that wasp vehicle.

Its like, here catch this cpu *throws cpu across the room*

Regardless, things are looking right. This could be good.

4Sh0w43d ago (Edited 43d ago )


I thought it was just me but I was like damm why the hell would you drop an aircraft like about some kind of drop with the aircrafts hover mode annimation immediately activated? Other than that and me wanting to see longer gameplay parts I thought it was a great look at the campaign.

gamer780442d ago

Or significantly improved choose whatever positive adjective you’d like.

That delay was put to good use.

Obscure_Observer43d ago


I knew Joseph Staten would never disappoint us, Halo fans.

OMG. That was beautiful and frenetic!


CaptainHenry91643d ago (Edited 43d ago )

Lol, I guess I'm blind LMAO Nothing new. Glad this is on gamepass on PC

darkrider43d ago (Edited 43d ago )

This is isn't on level with the graphics of destiny... The quality of the textures... Maybe they should let playground do the next. 343 just can't push forward the franchise

CaptainHenry91643d ago (Edited 43d ago )


This is not the campaign review. Even if the campaign ends up bad I can still play it for free on gamepass 😁 the game should get an 8

This is looking really good.

Looking forward to an open world Halo.

camel_toad43d ago (Edited 43d ago )

I haven't gotten into a Halo game in a while but this one looks like it's fresh enough to get me back into it. I like the more open areas that lend themselves to more freedom of approach. Look fun.

PC version for me.

PrinceAli42d ago

You CANT be serious lool!?!?!

Tapani42d ago (Edited 42d ago )

I was completely sold on this. Watched the trailer three times and can't wait to play the campaign! PC for me.

Is it just me or does that look SLOW as fu*k

dbcoops42d ago

38 people agreed with him thus far so apparently its not just him

42d ago
Snookies1242d ago (Edited 42d ago )

Nah it's not just EvertonFC, I feel the same way on that. Still looks really fun, but I'd at least like the vehicles to move a bit faster if nothing else...

On a side note, I couldn't help laughing at the WASP getting called in. Looked like they damaged the thing before you could even get in it with how hard it dropped lol. Overall, it looks really good though. Can't wait to check it out! I loved that you could grapple onto Banshee's mid-air.

abstractel42d ago

It does look slow and as if it belongs on last-gen consoles. I partly blame Series S for this but the future will paint a clearer picture regarding this topic. Also, Halo has never been a looker. The atmosphere and music has always been great, but never the graphics.

But I am not all negative on this game, it's a day 1 for me for the campaign and the multiplayer looks like something I could get into. I did play a lot of Halo 1 multiplayer back in the day with friends.

dbcoops42d ago (Edited 42d ago )


I don't care what likes it has, my response was regarding darthv72's comment to EvertonFC specifically. It wasn't just him and there was proof of that. Up to 49 agrees now.

foker43d ago

yep,.. looks even slower than Destiny,.. But maybe it is just me,.. Because after doom eternal or some Serious Sam gaming ,.. everything feels slow as shit.

Kavorklestein42d ago

Which isn't really a slight against Halo, it just a God-damn... Doom 2016/Eternal some damn fome shooters? Fuck yes they are.

solideagle43d ago (Edited 43d ago )

I think this is how Halo has been.
As for trailer I think it improved but I wouldn't call it a new era for Halo. Fans might like it, who knows. If gameplay is fun (which Halo always have) then sure why not. I don't want to make any comparison but I think God of war set a standard when it comes to rebooting a franchise. I think doing exactly what other halos had done in the past minus the open world doesn't scream to me a new era, in my humble opinion.

EvertonFC43d ago

Well said, it will cater for the old guard but as for the current younger fortnite players etc I'm not so sure halo will be there thing but hey its GP so who knows

darthv7243d ago

This isnt a reboot though. And a better example of rebooting a franchise would be metroid prime. Taking what is a 2d platformer and making it first person and putting you in the game was well done. Nothing has come close to flipping the script ever since.

solideagle43d ago (Edited 43d ago )

my apologies then, I thought it was a reboot. I have never played metroid, so I cannot give that example. I think changing genre is not as huge as making a dying franchise and unlikeable main character to a huge 20 million+ + likeable character. if you watch the documentary about God of War then you will realise how much bigger it was a risk. If metroid failed as 3D they would have gone back to 2D, no big deal?

I also think Halo is little late to the party for open worlds as gamers are burnt out by open world by now. I personally would take a tight linear campaign over an open world but that's just me personally. I am sure millions will enjoy this in December :)

repsahj43d ago (Edited 43d ago )

Not just you dont worry. Although graphics improved from laaaassstttt year, still not mind blowing. Forza is the better deal this year for X.

Andrew33643d ago

I'm so confused by this comment. Forza is the better deal because of its graphics? Uh.. what if I want to play a FPS not a racer?

Kavorklestein42d ago

Better deal? Gamepass for 2 months play both.
Half price of a standard game.
Both on ALL Xboxes besides load ass 360 and older.
And PC.

Can't complain at all no matter where you are in the demographic.

anubusgold41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

I will be playing the multiplayer for years just like every other Halo so i dont know what you are talking about. Halo multiplayer is so laid back and chill i can play it all day unlike other shooters. The Halo flights is the first multiplayer in years i played for 8 hours at a time.

alb189943d ago

Well, if you gonna compare it with Doom Eternity it is slow but they have different approach. Once you start to play you will feel it alright.

Profchaos42d ago (Edited 42d ago )

Halo has always been a slow game they didn't really include sprint until reach and that was via powerup it was in 5 though so it may return here.

The internet: "we want a return to the roots"
343: " here's a game that takes inspiration from the early days"
The internet: "no not like that"
343: "we've delayed it a year to polish here's the campaign now"
The internet: " yeah it's a bit slow"

KillBill42d ago

Not as slow as Battlefield 2042!

Looks epic, after Halo 5 bad campaign i was worried about this but that overview was stunning, cannot wait.

Killer73nova43d ago

Game looks great. Seems you have multiple ways to kill opponents

crazyCoconuts43d ago

I like the variety the grappling hook adds to grabbing weapons and getting in vehicles - that looks fun

Killer73nova43d ago

I’m just going to chucking explosives at everything 😂

Lightning7743d ago (Edited 43d ago )

I believe they'll have day and night cycles. So you can go im stealth or be a one man army.

They finally have a extensive upgrade system as well. Making the experience more personalized form the player. Which is great because that was the best part about Reach.

Tacoboto43d ago

Multiple ways to save your fellow marines too.
Actually save them, or... drive right off that cliff!

Killer73nova43d ago

I can’t wait for co-op to be available so me and da boys can grapple each other across the map for an insane kill 😂

iNcRiMiNaTi43d ago

That battlefield reference at 4:50

darthv7243d ago

And craig at 5:40. Nice to see 343 embrace the criticism and turn it around.

iNcRiMiNaTi43d ago (Edited 43d ago )

Lol yeah he didn't look so sad this time around. He actually looked kinda angry

Lightning7743d ago

Craig came back with the vengeance he's been hittin the gym this past year.

KillBill42d ago

5:40? Master Chief is dropping towards the ship at 5:40.
