Halo Infinite launch trailer highlights campaign’s open-world action
Ahead of its official launch on December 8th, Halo Infinite has gotten a new release trailer that showcases Master Chief’s open-world adventure on Zeta.
While plenty of players have already gone hands-on with the Halo Infinite multiplayer beta, the trailer is all about Halo Infinite‘s campaign. The trailer gives us a good setup for the story: Master Chief finds that the Banished have occupied Zeta Halo and are planning on firing the ring to destroy humanity. “The mission’s changed,” Chief tells his new AI compatriot, The Weapon. “They always do.”
The description accompanying the trailer gives us further clues about what we can expect from the campaign, objective-wise. “Rescue UNSC marines to gain reinforcements in your fight against a fearsome enemy known as ‘the Banished,'” it reads. “Enjoy true Spartan freedom in the biggest, most wide open and adventure-filled Halo experience yet.” It’ll be interesting to see whether or not players can choose to rescue marines, at the cost of less upgrades or friendly AI, or if it’s obligatory to progress the story.
Halo Infinite‘s campaign comes to Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC on December 8th. It launches day-one on Game Pass for Xbox and PC. The multiplayer beta is already available on all platforms, including Steam for PC.
