Microsoft has decided on December 8, 2021, the release date of Halo Infinite, another entry in the sci-fi shooter franchise and this year’s major project for its creative arm, Xbox Game Studios. This is the first launch of the Halo mainline in more than half a decade, promising the biggest single-player campaign to date and a return to the classic arena multiplayer game. Halo Infinite made its stage debut at Geoff Keighley’s Opening Night Live Wednesday, unveiling a new multiplayer trailer and an Xbox Series X console inspired by Halo Infinite.

But there is one take-out that I saw after Microsoft’s Gamescom show – “This is it?” The latest Halo show only raised concerns about the campaign’s offerings, which are now almost three months away from launch, but are still shrouded in mystery. It is promised a new take on the open world Halo game, which is set to be the most drastic change to the formula in franchise history. However, with no campaign so close to takeoff, 343 Industries has not gotten the confidence to justify the $ 60 price tag.

We still don’t have a release date for Halo Infinite, but we know a lot more about the game’s launch in 2021 than in 2020

In the Halo Infinite campaign, the Master Chief will return as the fate of mankind hangs in the balance to face the most ruthless enemy he has ever faced, the Halo Wars 2 Outcast.

The movie shows a Chieftain crashing into an unknown planet that soon turns out to be an open world – the first in the series – along with a map you can explore and track your targets.

Halo Infinite will also feature a host of new gadgets, weapons, and abilities, including a hook for moving towards enemies.

According to Microsoft, the gameplay footage is captured in real time and is representative of the Xbox Series X experience running at 60fps and resolutions up to 4K.

It has been confirmed that there will be no intrusive DRM. According to producer Jeff Guy: “Things like making sure our game works well with certain hardware families or fighting hard to make sure we don’t add intrusive DRM to our game.”

Security engineer Michael VanKuipers extended this to talk about the anti-cheat feature, saying “to make cheating more difficult in a way that does not require kernel drivers or background services. We did a lot of work securing the Slipspace engine and developing new ways to protect and change the game to slow down cheat development. When people cheat, we focus on catching them by their behavior, not by data collected from their machines”.

That’s all we know about the Halo Infinite campaign, however Microsoft has also given some details about the upcoming Halo TV series, which you can read about in The Digital Fix.
