Halo Infinite's New Campaign Trailer Shows Off The Vast Open World Of Zeta Halo
Master Chief's got new allies and enemies, but there's plenty that's familiar.
When 343 Industries first showed off Halo Infinite's campaign trailer last year, the response was less than positive. Most of the rancor focused on the visuals, which were good enough, but not spectacular, as would befit Xbox's premier franchise making its debut on a new console.
As a result, Halo Infinite was delayed for an additional year and is now set for a December 2021 launch. Fans got treated to a new trailer today, and it offers a much cleaner look for the game, which also shows off a lot of exciting gameplay and story moments.
Once again, you'll be stepping into the combat boots of Master Chief, and once again, it's his job to save humanity from all kinds of alien threats. The battleground this time is Zeta Halo, which is dotted with Banished installations throughout that Master Chief can take on in whatever fashion he chooses. The trailer refers to all this as “true Spartan freedom” and it looks distinctly like a modern mission-based open-world game like the Far Cry or Ghost Recon series.
Master Chief's first goal is to figure out what happened to Cortana following the events of Halo 5. Aiding him in that quest is a new AI companion, called “The Weapon,” who seems cute and charming but with a name like that, probably has a dark and terrible secret that goes beyond her self-stated “lock down” of Cortana.
There are plenty of tools at the disposal of Master Chief as he goes about his deadly business, with all kinds of guns, explosives, and vehicles on display throughout the six-minute video. He'll need them as he takes on not only familiar enemies, but a few new faces, including a “sadistic Spartan killer” and something even more deadly that bills itself as “the harbinger of the truth” as it smacks MC around and sends him barreling through a tree.
Halo Infinite launches on December 8 for Xbox Series X|S and will be available via Game Pass. Learn more about it on the game's website.
