Since the Xbox Game Pass subscription service was launched, Xbox has been including monthly additions. Soon, they will be launching the Halo Infinite. This is one of Xbox’s most influential console series. The news of its release has left its fans excited. Here is what you need to know about Halo Infinite’s Day-One Xbox Game Pass Release.
In the Halo Infinite, the story of Master Chief will be continued. He will return to one of the iconic titular rings of Halo. Let’s learn more about what this game entails.
Halo Infinite’s Singleplayer Campaign
Since the game was revealed, there is not a lot known about the campaign. The 343 Industries’ developers have been sharing a few details. As per the source: Gamer Headlines, they have revealed an open-world design in the game’s ring. Through this, players will be able to travel through different means to complete the objectives of the mission and explore the world. This includes several vehicles that the series veterans expect.
In terms of the story, there are a few hints. The trailer that was shown at Gamescom confirmed that Master Chief wouldn’t have Cortana with him. He might still be tracking her down or stopping her after the Halo 5 events took place. He will also be facing a new clan known as the Banished, banished by a character named Escharum.
Halo Infinite’s Multiplayer
Most of the time spent playing any Halo title is in multiplayer mode. And for the first time in the series, the multiplayer mode will be free-to-play. This way, non-subscribers will be able to check the game as well and even buy an Xbox Game Pass subscription to the game for checking out the game. Through this, they are trying to stay competitive in the market that is currently dominated by other free-to-play titles like Fortnite and Apex Legends. However, developers have stated that it won’t have a pursuing game mode like Battle Royale.
Because of its free-to-play nature, it will also have alternative monetization methods for seasonal battle passes. In recent years, these battle passes have become quite popular for live service games to raise revenue continuously. It also gives players a chance to earn cosmetic content while participating in new themed events. Halo Infinite has taken a new approach. You will have the option to purchase the Halo Infinite’s battle passes and unlock the content even after the season has ended. This way, players won’t feel FOMO because of battle passes.
Halo Infinite’s Release
The game will be launched on 8th December 2021 for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. it will be available for the standard $60 as well as on day-on on all platforms through the Xbox Game Pass. The multiplayer mode of the game is completely free-to-play. However, there are some features that this game will be missing. One of these is the campaign co-op which has been delayed. During its early development, the developers at 343 Industries talked about co-op in the game and the local split-screen. However, later, it was announced that this feature wouldn’t be immediately available. Instead, it is expected to be released after a few months of the initial launch.
Another missing feature is the Halo forge mode through which the players can put together custom game modes and maps. For this, Halo’s base assets are used. Over the years, it has become an integral part of the franchise. So far, the team at 343 industries hasn’t provided any details on the Forge mode and what it will look like.
Multiplayer assassination is another feature that is missing in the release. Multiplayer assassinations are flaky kills performed by players by attacking enemies from behind. Fans have been very disappointed because of this delay. Hopefully, they won’t have to wait for too long as many of the missing features will be launched soon.
