Microsoft has finally unveiled the Halo Infinite campaign, but we haven’t seen the multiplayer footage yet. Microsoft will demonstrate a multiplayer program “soon”, but ahead of this Xbox boss Phil Spencer offered to tease what to expect.
He told iJustine that Halo Infinite would create a multiplayer element of Halo 5: Guardians, which was generally well received by fans. He also teased that 343 developers had pushed themselves to new “technical problems” for multiplayer, but Spencer did not go into detail. The executive also confirmed that the multiplayer element of Halo Infinite was developed together with professional Halo players, trying to build experience.
“Halo Infinite̵7;s multiplayer. I think it’s going to be special when we talk about it,” Spencer said. “We know that for a lot of people, Halo CE has started dragging our Xboxes with us, plugging them together and playing a multiplayer console for many of us for the first time. So I’m excited about what we’re going to look at and what we’re going to show. I think that the team is based on what they did with Halo 5, and the multiplayer in Halo 5 got very good. “
“So it’s great to see the team keep repeating things that the community loves,” he added. “Export players have been actively involved in what we are doing [with Halo Infinite] because we know that this is a strong part of the community; professional players. And there are some technical challenges that the team has set for itself in multiplayer, which I really want to talk about when we get there. As soon! We’ll soon be able to talk about the multiplayer Halo Infinite. “
Two new features in Halo Infinite, Grappleshot and Drop Wall, will also be introduced in multiplayer, although they will be available as pickups instead of permanent capabilities.
The standard Halo 5 multiplayer was called Arena, and it was seen as a positive step forward after the Halo 4 multiplayer problems. Halo 5 also introduced a large-scale MOBA-style mode called Warzone, which sees teams of 12 players fighting AI enemies and each other.
Halo is known for its multiplayer program, so it will be interesting to see how Halo Infinite pushes things forward when the time comes. Microsoft has not announced an upcoming Xbox show or other multiplayer event, but it should happen relatively soon, as Halo Infinite is due to release this holiday as a name launch for the Xbox Series X.
The game will also fit the standard Xbox One, as well as a PC. To learn more, check out the GameSpot video review, which covers everything you need to know about Halo Infinite.
