Halo Infinite roadmap details multiplayer events
A new roadmap for Halo Infinite details the multiplayer events coming to Season 1: Heroes of Reach.
November 22nd marks the end of the 20th Anniversary event and the impending start of the first event, Francture: Tenrai. Developer 343 Industries posted a preview of the free 30-tier event pass, which comes with a series of cosmetic rewards.
Future events include Winter Contingency, Cyber Showdown, Tactical Ops, and the Halo Championship Series (HCS) Spotlight. 343 did not include launch dates for these events, but we do know that Season 1 will last through May 2022.
Developer 343 Industries has also released an update. It includes a five-minute timer for Oddball in matchmaking. It seems that some players were just letting the Oddball sit untouched, so this should fix that issue.
The update also includes stability improvements for the 24-player Big Team Battle and other “service-related improvements.” Finally, if you purchased Halo Credits outside of Steam, you should now be able to use them when playing via Steam.
The update did not include any balance changes to weapons, but the patch notes stated that “Halo Support will include these in our release notes” when they occur.
Halo Infinite‘s free-to-play multiplayer surprise launched as a beta earlier this week, and 343 has already been proactive in making changes. The most controversial aspect of the launch—its challenges-based battle pass progression system—has already been tweaked in an attempt to make it easier for players to level up.
Halo Infinite‘s free-to-play multiplayer is available now on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam or the Microsoft Store. The game’s campaign launches on December 8th.
